He shared that he went through a lot of trials and challenges just to be able to qualify for the Olympics.
Despite the heartbreak, the Olympic bronze medalist is thankful to God and to the people who supported him in his journey, especially his fiancée and his family.
“Lahat ng pag pupuri ay itataas ko sa pangalan ng Panginoon. Konting konti nalang sana at abot kamay kuna yung pinapangarap ko at ng papa ko simula pagkabata. Ang daming pagsubok para makarating dito sa Olympics. Masakit sa akin dahil hindi ko nakuha ang ginto.
“Pero taos puso at lubos akong nagpapasalamat sa buong Pilipinas at sa lahat ng Pilipino na sumuporta at pinaramdam sa akin na ako ang panalo para sa kanila. Sa aking buong pamilya at sa aking fiancée. Nag papasalamat ako sa Dios sa biyaya na binigay sa akin.
“I’d like also to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and heartfelt thanks to my ABAP family and team for the trust, to the Philippine Sports Commission, Philippine Olympic Committee, to my MVPSF family and boss Manny Pangilinan for the support, to MP Promotions, and to the Philippine Air Force for the tireless support. Thank you also to my Chooks To Go family, and to my Crown Royale Family.
“Special mention to the whole team coaches Ronald Chavez, Don Abnett, Nolito Velasco, Reynaldo Galido, nutritionist Jeaneth Aro, psychologist Marcus Manalo, and to Doc Molo. Also to Senator Manny Pacquiao for the support and MP Promotions president Mr. Sean Giboons for everything. Mabuhay and Pilipinas,” Emir wrote on Instagram.
