They wrote, “Winning the golds for men’s Gunshu and Daoshu events of Wushu yesterday came as a bittersweet moment for Indonesian Edgar Xavier Marvelo. People in his team were in tears after his victory and those were not just tears of joy. Edgar’s father died while he was competing in the event, and he was only informed about it after winning the gold, bringing him to tears. He dedicates his gold medal to his country and to his father.”

He wrote in his Instagram story, “Finally meeting my dad, he’s wearing my medals now.”

Considering Edgar is such a dedicated son, his father must be so proud of him, and how he had represented and honoured his country and family by bringing home not 1 but 2 gold medals.

We’re sending our love, prayers and condolences to Edgar and his family.

May he rest in peace.
