Hidilyn Diaz took to social media yesterday to ask for help regarding the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
KAMI learned that Diaz is asking for financial aid as she prepares for the prestigious competition.
"Is it okay to ask sponsorship sa mga private companies towards Tokyo 2020?
"Hirap na hirap na ako. I need financial support."
"Sa tingin niyo, okay lang kaya. Nahihiya kasi ako, pero try ko kapalan mukha ko para sa minimithi kong pangarap para sa ating bansa, na maiuwi ang gold medal sa Olympics,” she wrote in her Instagram stories.
In a previous report by KAMI, Diaz was erroneously tagged as one of the personalities who are plotting to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.
Hidilyn Diaz is a female weightlifter. She won the silver medal in the 2016 Summer Olympics, the country’s first in 20 years. Diaz is also the first Filipina to win a medal in the Olympics.
