The Philippines has registered the worst finish since joining the SEA games in 1977 in the recently concluded sports event. Walked out of the boxing ring for that possible 7 other golds and what could be the worst sportsman-like attitude an athlete can have. (On the second thought, as Manny Pacquiao said, boxers don’t walk out. I guess it’s the sports officials that needs the blaming for this stupid decision. Yes, I feel for them for believing that we are being cheated. But to quit? Cliche as it is, but sports is not all about winning. It’s about character.)
We’re hoping for the very first Olympic gold. But if we can’t win against those with similar genes, how can we win against taller and faster races?
