Olympian Lifts Up Our Lady’s Miraculous Medal After Winning Gold Medal for the Philippines

Congratulations to this talented Olympian! 👏👏👏

Olympian Hidilyn Diaz won the first-ever gold medal for the Philippines on July 26, 2021 in the women’s 55 kg (121-pound) weightlifting category for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The Philippines have competed in the Olympics for the last 97 years.

The 30-year-old broke a world record after lifting a combined weight of 493.8 pounds!

” I cannot believe my name is in the Olympic record. So I’m really thankful,” Diaz said. “God is Amazing! God is Amazing!”

After winning, the four-time Olympian praised God and lifted up the Miraculous Medal she wore around her neck.

Diaz’s translated post reads, “Thank you for the delivery, @davepan83. I remember leaflets of angels and Sacred heart of Jesus in the ones you gave. I will read it. Thank you everyone for your prayers, we don’t just have to face opponents in the game, there is also a virus. So please pray for our safety.”

The Olympian later thanked her Instagram followers and again lifted the Miraculous Medal.
