A new ride for Team HD
The Philippines’ first Olympic gold medalist continues to be lauded and recognized by the country and various businesses for her latest achievement.
Government officials and the country’s top business executives are slated to give more than P35 million to Diaz in recognition and appreciation for giving the country its first Olympic gold medal since it joined the games in 1924.
The rewards are expected to rise up to P50 million as Malacañang and other patrons promised to give more in appreciation of her unprecedented feat.
These prizes include a house and lot, condominium unit, unlimited miles on airlines, a lifetime supply of fuel, and even free meals for life at various restaurants.
The latest to pledge a prize is Foton Motor Philippines. Foton is one of the leading commercial vehicle manufacturers in the country, and one of the few that assembles vehicles in the Philippines.
Foton announced that it has gifted a brand new TransVan 13-seater to the Philippines’ first Olympic gold medalist, Hidilyn Diaz, for bringing home a historic triumph in the Women's Weightlifting 55-kg class held in Tokyo.
“Filipino pride stands high in front of an international audience with the triumph of our Filipino athlete, Hidilyn Diaz. As she drives home glory, we are honored to prize her utmost dedication with the top-rated mobility of our Foton TransVan 13-seater” said Foton Motor Philippines Inc. (FMPI) President, Rommel Sytin.
The TransVan 13-seater is ideal for a variety of uses, from family trips to business related tours. The four-door van will easily accommodate the entire Team HD or Diaz’s entire family to any destination.
