To say that Hidilyn deserves it all is to state the obvious.

It was truly amazing to see how Hidilyn excelled at the Olympics, not only making her home country proud but also receiving praise from her Asian counterparts.

She’ll go on to do greater things in the future and inspire others to do the same, and for that, she deserves to be celebrated.
