TAMPOK sa librong “Ginto’t Pilak” si Pinay weightlifting star at Olympian Hidilyn Diaz.
Isinulat ni Eugene Evasco at iginuhit ni Tristan Youvienc, inilunsad ng 2016 Rio Olympics silver medalist ang “Ginto’t Pilak” children’s book upang itaguyod ang weightlifting.
“This is one of my ‘why’s’ in life, before I won the silver medal for the Philippines at the 2016 Rio Olympics, I didn’t give up on my preparation for the Olympics because of the younger generation. I wanted to build a weightlifting gym for them, I built it, but what I want is to give them the inspiration to continue with their dream in weightlifting,” lahad ni Diaz sa Instagram.
“This is my advocacy, to spread awareness for weightlifting and to find the next athlete who will be better than I ever was,” sabi pa ng 2018 Asian Games gold medalist.
“I thank God for giving me this mission in life and for giving me wisdom to continue my dream despite the trials and challenges I’ve endured.”
“This book is the story of my life to inspire the younger generation to dream high and tell them to reach their dream but they have to work hard because there is no instant in life,” wika pa ni Diaz na nagwagi rin ng ginto sa 2019 Southeast Asian Games. (JAToralba)
