Years from now, the country may see not just one, but several successors to accomplished weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz.
Diaz, who bagged a gold medal in the 2018 Asian Games, recently opened a gym where young weightlifters wanting to follow in her footsteps can train.
Diaz posted a video of the gym in Barangay Mampang in Zamboanga City, where several youngsters could be seen training.
"Ito ang naging bunga ng sakripisyong ginawa ko noong Olympics," Diaz said in her Facebook video.
"Take note, 42 athletes are training here. Seventeen athletes will compete in Batang Pinoy ngayong September sa Baguio."
