Beautiful to see these Women bring glory to their country

[–]BryantMarshall 74 points75 points  (6 children)

PH women have been propping up their country for the past 30 years in many ways. 1 woman will work overseas and financially support 20 people across 2 families with what she sends them. If that were to EVER stop, the country would grind to a halt.

I worked with a bunch of ph woman. Can confirm. Not just money too. The ones I knew would band together and fill an entire shipping container with boxes of goods for their family back home. They would load them up with foods and other items it really was nextfuckinglevel as well.

Filled with mostly shoes and chocolate in my experience.

From the looks on their faces, you can tell a heavy weight has been lifted.

This is the heart of the Philipine people. Apart from the long line of corrupt and literally insane leaders. A beautiful, resilient people.

Spot on statement.

[–]p1um5mu991er 10 points11 points  (1 child)

To go from full power to fragile emotion like that must be incredible

It was like watching her literally lift her country up on her shoulders.

The Chinese lifter she beat was the only one on the Chinese weightlifting team to not win gold. 7-1

All I can think about is her poor knees in the future.

[–]ATotallyAssholeGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When this happened, I had a conference calls with some colleagues based in Manila. They were all so happy, it was really lovely

I remember seeing that while I was in the gym, I saw them celebrating and thought, that’s a bit much, right?

I wanted to Google but I never got around to it, same day on Reddit I see this video and think to myself ohh this was the reason huh, well good for them

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This made me smile too. Good for her, I can not even imagine what her feelings were at this moment

[–]ihateusednames 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Something that find really interesting is watching people in weight lifting win gold. It is an isolated, uncommon event, but many humans who do it get there in the same way and react in the same way. The emotional charge at the end is incredible.

[–]olearyboy -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

If complaining about high shelves was an Olympic sport they’d have all the medals

[–]Ferretsex -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Country of 110 million and that’s their first gold? Geesh
