I remember it was 2004 when I first got addicted to watching Summer Olympics. It’s that time of the season again. I was so happy watching our fellow Filipinos wave as they parade at the London Olympics 2012 opening ceremony. Even my bossing was so happy he couldn’t help but cheer.
When I posted a video on Facebook, a classmate of mine reacted how poorly our athletes were supported this Olympic season.
frankly i feel sorry for the philippine athletes. imagine, 11 lang ata ang delegates ng philippines. haller!? 11 lang? sana naman ung government natin mag allot din ng tamang budget para sa sports di ba. lagi na lang kawawa ang mga pinoy. 😦
I tried to stay positive with my response.
Oo nga eh. Pero alam mo palagay ko hindi rin basta budget eh. Merong olympic qualifier kasi. Baka hindi tayo nakakapasok sa iba. Ewan ko lang. Oo nga eh. Ngayong may internet na sana mapromote na lalo yung sports at masuportahan yung athletes natin. Dadami na rin yan kung mag-umpisa tayong sumuporta. ^_^
