Asian Games 2018 first-time athlete, Yuka Saso, Gold Medalist for the Golf tournament, mentioned that she doesn’t let pressure get into her, and asserts that teamwork is the key to surpassing everything.
“Nandoon yung pressure, pero sobrang nag enjoy po kami kasi yun nga po team event nga po yung sa amin yung teamwork talaga” She added.
For Margielyn Didal, women’s street skateboarding gold medalist, her strong ties with her family and supporters back home contributed greatly to her winning performance.
“I hope Smart continues to give support especially pag nag out-of-country, para may communication yung mga athletes to their family. Para magkaroon ng conversation with family before the event, para more inspiration at motivation bago sumabak,” said Didal.
Smart has been a staunch supporter of the sports industry in the Philippines and they have better plans for our PH athletes in the future.
“We are looking at different ways to support Smart, on how they support Sports with POC and PSC. We are looking at certain technologies that we can use together, certain platforms for the athletes, to improve para they can use technology in Sports science,” Cui added.
