Here Are The Winning Looks Of Hidilyn Diaz and Nesthy Petecio At The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games
Take a closer look at their winning moments here!
The Olympics are not known as a fashion affair but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some championing moments worth celebrating this year. How can we ever forget the moment Hidilyn Diaz realized that she won Philippines' first ever Olympic gold or the time when Nesthy Petecio landed her last and most powerful punch as she made history as the first ever Filipina Olympic boxing medalist? Hours and even days after their historic wins, we still find ourselves in awe and incredibly proud for their winning moments! Just in case you need something you can go back to for days when you need a little bit of push, we give you a full recap of their victorious bits here.
In case you missed it, Japanese sportswear brand Asics provided our Filipino athletes tracksuits, training and competition wear, footwear, and other accessories such as caps and socks for this year's Olympic Games. It was absolutely a no brainer for our athletes to don uniforms in red and blue. The designs of the uniforms are even more amplified with the Philippine flag and subtle pinstriped detailing to make an even bigger statement.
19 athletes including Hidilyn and Nesthy wore these uniforms during the opening and closing ceremonies as well as during their games.
Up to this day, whenever we see their winning looks pop up in our feeds, we couldn't help but feel proud of how far they have come and how much honor they've brought our country even during these tough times. Women like Hidilyn and Nesthy will forever remain as our life inspiration!
