    1. Girl he's not so good looking before then he transformed. And ok ung looks nya now kaya siguro he's flaunting it. Masama ba un or inggit ka lang?

    2. kaloka naman si te. ang bitter masyado. it's his personal life naman, anong konek sa pag skate nya? nakikita mo ba sya mag practice para sabihin mo na wala syang ibang inatupag kundi gym at selfie? haha

    3. sure ka walang improvement dahil dun? please show me the stats, yung kita ang direct correlation ah!

    4. Wow maka-hanash na walang improvement itong si Anon 12:33, akala mo mas relevant syang tao. Ikaw ba nakatapak na sa Olympics para lumaban para sa sarili mong bansa? Keyboard warrior ka lang Te. Make yourself useful instead of wasting your time bashing athletes who work their asses off just to represent a tropical country in the winter Olympics.

    5. the fact lang na nakabalik sya ulit sa olympics, achievement na yun. he was the youngest sa sochi olympics if im not mistaken. mas bata pa sya sa wonderboy ng japan na si hanyu yuzuru. 16/17 palang sya nun kaya malaki talaga magbabago in 4 yrs

    1. I think the point is being able to participate in the Olympics. To represent your country and to be able to compete against the best athletes in your field.

      Madami din naman pinagdaanan ng mga yan para makarating sa Olympics.

    2. Instead na maging negatron tayo, why not pray for them na atleast isa sa kanila ay may maiuwing medal di ba?!

    3. Reaching Olympic e sobrang winner na... utak talangka.. can you just be proud for someone’s victory? Or atleast stfu

    4. Kaya hindi umuunlad ang Pilipinas dahil sa mga tulad mo na napaka-nega sa buhay!

    8. Ewan ko sau 12:34, wala ka man lang positive vibes sa katawan mo, at least merong mga taong nagbihasa sa ganyang sport kahit na wala tayong winter or snow.

    9. sayang pala at umasa pa ang mga magulang nitong si
      12:34 na magkakaroon sila ng matinong supling... dapat pala di na umasa ever sa kahit anong bagay...

  6. The netizens are missing when the much-needed posts are needed to flood the world of social media to make these inspiring Filipino athletes be known to the world. When most of the world were busy supporting their athletes through socmed, the pinoy netizens are busy with what??

    1. Bashing! And instead na suportahan sila, kung ano-ano pang sinasabi nilang negatibo.

    2. Eating, syempre!

    3. may mga iba maraming hanash , imbes na mag support sa mga athletes dahil Pilipino kung ano ano pangbabash. Sus kala mo naman nakatapak ng snow mga bashers na ito.

    4. Supporting their jeje idols with mediocre talents and bashing other artists at the same time

    1. well, seeing them qualify there should make our mother country proud na. i think it'd be better to say..."Do your best! we are very proud of you no matter what!"

  8. OK ako kay michael kasi homegrown. yan si asa miller, the only reason why she is representing the philippines is because she is not good enough to get into the US olympic team. 2nd choice lang nya tayo, magpakatotoo tayo.

    1. Asa's scores were good enough to qualify - which means out of thousands of athletes in her sport, she's at a level to at least compete with the best in the world, even if she doesn't win. AND she chose to represent a country who don't adequately fund it's Olympians, much less WINTER Olympians. Yung years of training/qualifying tourneys niya until this point sa tingin mo pinondohan ng gobyerno? She still chose to represent us and carry our flag proudly. Bakit ka hindi magiging ok dun?

      Delete
    2. This is 2:24 - big OOPS, I thought Asa was a girl. I kept using female pronouns. He's a 17yr old boy pala, sorry!

      Delete
    3. True anon 1:43 AM, the only reason why that ASA miller joined the Philippine team because she has no pag-ASA to be included in the US line up of athletes and she wants to join the Winter Olympics by whatever means so she joined the PH team! FACT!

      Delete
    4. Guys, Asa Miller is also a male athlete. asa Miller is a he, Asa Miller is a him, Asa Miller is a his

    5. 7:15, see 2:45's correction.

    6. Lalake pala yung asa miller akala ko rin kasi babae hindi ko rin kilala.

    7. Hello, meron pong tinatawag na “qualifiers” na pag di ka nag qualify, di ka makakasali, may standards po. Bago nakarating sa Olympics yan, kelangan nanalo na sila sa ibang events. May mga magagaling athletes nga na US born-and-bred na pero European countries ang nire represent. What makes Asa any different?

      Delete
    8. @ 5:40AM, boom! tumfact! natumbok mo!

      Delete
    9. Dami n’yong hanash, di nyo nga alam kung lalaki o babae ang tao. You are judging the person already and it’s pretty ovious that you don’t know him at all. First, second or third choice ka man, at least someone represented the country. What about you? Any achievements that you do in your life so far? Or tambay lang, antay ng chismis at mang bash????

      Delete
    10. @2:24, good enough to qualify, yes.
      pero is it good enough to qualify as the BEST in the US OLympics team?the answer is NO. Madaming mas magagaling kay Asa sa TEam USA at wala sya pag-ASA dun kaya sa pilipinas sya pumunta kase sureball na magququalify sya sa RP Team dahil wala sya kumpetitsyun.

      Delete
    11. suportahan nyo nalang si Asa kesa mambash kayo. Pasalamat kayo may nagrrepresent ng flag nyo sa Winter Olympics. Tsaka Ano bang kinagagalit nyo? Si Asa nagraise ng sarili nyang funds panggastos sa Olympics. Pano yung PH govt sobrang liit ng binigay sa parehong athletes (Asa and Michael). Buti May sponsors sila. So Wala kayong karapatan mambash kasi all they’re doing is representing YOUR flag tapos 80% of it is with their OWN resources/money pa. Wag nga kayo. Lol

    12. buti nga Asa choose Philippines over USA lets support him and Michael pray lang tayo sana maka medal tayo

  9. Ang daming hanash ng iba buti nga may flag carrier tayo sa Olympics eh bat di na lang tayo maging masaya na kahit sila sila lang na march yung watawat ng Pilipinas jan

  10. 1:43 Hindi lahat ganyan ang mindset. Maybe the athlete is really Pinoy at heart kaya lang wala namang training facilities sa Pilipinas. May mga standards din naman na fina follow ang Pilipinas na kung hindi papasa ang athlete, why send him/her to represent?

    1. Tama! Tapos pag biglang gumaling/nanalo ng medal biglang "pinoy pride" eh pero habang nags-struggle wala naman tayong moral support. Nung nagt-training mga yan for more than half their lives, may hiningi ba sila sa'tin? Why shame dual-heritage Olympic athletes about competing for our country?

      Delete
    2. true, yung ibang humahanash na kung ano ano pinagsasabi, pag manalo yan wag kayo sumali sa pagsaya saya na. Wala na nga kayong maitulong, nagagawa niyo pa manlait. Why not support them.

      Delete
  11. Kapag basketball pinag-uusapan, todo supportive ng Pinoy. Daming sponsors, media coverage, cheering squad etc. Pero sa totoo lang we have as little chance to win an Olympic medal in basketball as in any winter sport. Mas kailangan pa nga ng support ng mga yan eh, kasi the govt barely funds them. I get that we don't have winter pero sana naman kahit panoorin lang natin sila, i-cheer sa social media, wag i-relegate as a 2-column article lang in the papers, sana yung big corporations funding basketball fund them too. Kasi nagpakahirap din sila at pamilya nila para makarating diyan. They dedicate years of their lives to get there, to proudly wave our flag, pero ano tayo walng pake wala tayong binibigay na kahit moral support man lang as a nation. They deserve better than our apathy.

  12. i wonder if Chot Reyes did really his best to support the team or anyone from PSC. heard from the announcer from different country that the athletes had to post on social media for financial support to be able to compete and fly, that was while they are marching with the flag..

  16. Good luck Michael! I have been a fan since Sochi days. So proud to have a homegrown athlete competing in the olympics! He has improved naman in the past 4yrs. The competition just became so much tougher this quad, that’s why he’s slipping down the ranks.

  17. Being able to qualify in the Olympics is a big achievement. You never know, he may be able to defeat Shoma Uno and Nathan Chen in the future.
