And some of these perks will make you wish you were an Olympian too.

To top all of that, Hidilyn has also been promoted from Sergeant to Staff Sergeant at the Armed Forces of the Philippines and will have a statue of herself in her hometown of Zamboanga City.

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.
