Wazzup Pilipinas!?

2016 Rio Olympic silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz officially makes a return to the quadrennial meet! 

Diaz competed in the women’s 55kg division. This event formalizes her entry to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics during the Asian Weightlifting Championships in Taskhkent, Uzbekistan. 

Diaz becomes the seventh Filipino in the Tokyo Olympics. She will make her fourth Olympic appearance since Beijing (2008), London (2012) and Rio (2016) Games.

She joins boxers Eumir Marcial, Irish Magno, Carlo Paalam and Nesthy Petecio, pole vaulter EJ Obiena and gymnast Carlos Yulo.
