    House commends Filipino ice skater

     
    Lawmakers have commended through various resolutions Filipino ice skater Michael Christian Martinez who participated in the 22nd Winter Olympic Games recently held at Sochi, Russia.
    Speaker Feliciano Belmonte said the talented Michael Christian gave an impressive performance at the 2014 Winter Olympics, reaching 19th place overall in the men's figure skating event.
    Martinez got a score of 64.81 points for the short program and 119.44 for the final free skate routine, for a cumulative score of 184.25 points.
    "The athlete has shown tremendous talent, ability, and heart, quietly achieving his dream of competing despite numerous obstacles and injuries through the years," the Speaker said.
    "Through sheer determination and hard work, Martinez qualified in this years' Winter Olympics, becoming the first Filipino and the sole athlete to ever compete from a Southeast Asian nation to reach the finals of the Men's Free Skating event," the Speaker said.
    The Speaker said Martinez has exhibited tremendous pride and joy in representing the Philippines at the 2014 Winter Olympics, serving as an inspiration to his countrymen, especially the young generation of today, when he showed the whole world the ability of the Filipino to surpass any limitation and excel in any field.
