‘Worth it’: Hidilyn Diaz sacrificed a lot for Olympic gold

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/27/2021 - 22:13
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFdHnjr6wPk TOKYO---Hidilyn Diaz has seen it all, heard it all. She's watched her name surface in a government matrix that detailed supposed conspiratorial destabilizers. She's seen her performance dip below standards she is accustomed to. A pandemic stranded her in Malaysia, locking her away from her family for 18 months. "People said I was over the hill," Diaz said. "I really went through a lot. Well, everyone is singing praises to her now, a day after she ended the country's quest for an Olympic gold medal by ruling the women's weightlifting 55-kg division at Tokyo International Forum late Monday night. Bashers who fed her reputation and ...

Panelo insists he did not link Hidilyn Diaz to plot to overthrow Duterte

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/27/2021 - 22:09
MANILA, Philippines --- Chief presidential legal counsel Salvador Panelo on Tuesday insisted he did not say Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz is part of an alleged plot to oust President Rodrigo Duterte. This even if it was him who made public in 2019 six matrices of what he described as a network of personalities, which included Diaz, that purportedly wants to overthrow the Duterte administration. In a statement, Panelo again blamed the media for "hastily" concluding that the government tagged Diaz as part of the destabilizers. He offered this same excuse in 2019 when he was pressed by the media to explain the inclusion of Diaz and star volleyball player and TV host Gretch...

Why is Taiwan not called Taiwan at the Olympics?

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/27/2021 - 22:01
Taiwan's star weightlifter Kuo Hsing-chun won gold at the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday, but when she ascended the podium to receive her medal there was no national flag and no national anthem to greet her. Taiwan cannot even call itself "Taiwan" at the Games. Instead, it must use the title "Chinese Taipei," a source of considerable frustration to many Taiwanese. Here's why: What's in a name? Taiwan has been given a host of names at the Olympics over the years because of its peculiar international status. Despite being a self-ruled democracy of 23 million people with its own borders, currency and government, Taiwan's status remains disputed. After the 1949 Chinese civil war...

Russian women win Olympics gymnastics team final after Biles exit

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/27/2021 - 21:47
Russia's women gymnastics team capitalized on the dramatic departure of Simone Biles from the US team to win the Olympic title on Tuesday.

Britain took a surprise bronze medal. Led by Angelina Melnikova, the Russians emulated their men's team who won gold 24 hours earlier. Competing under a neutral banner due to its country's doping suspension, Russia was ending a sequence of domination by the US women in world and Olympic finals stretching back to 2011.

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/27/2021 - 21:44
MANILA, Philippines---Even when he was at the center of controversies, the late President Benigno Aquino III did not attempt to influence people just to take the heat off him. As senators honored Aquino and his legacies on Tuesday, two of them looked back at the time when the late president was caught in the middle of the 2015 Mamasapano massacre and the controversial Reproductive Health measure. She recalled having "clashed" with the Aquino administration on some issues like the botched Mamasapano operation that left 44 elite policemen dead and the "inefficiencies" of the MRT. As then chairperson of the Senate committee on public order, Poe investigated the Mamasapano massa...
