The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) will release a stamp in honor of weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz’s extraordinary and historic achievement as the first Filipino Olympic Gold medalist.

Postmaster General Norman Fulgencion said PHLPost is mandated to “immediately issue a stamp in honor of personalities who excelled in sports in any other arena.”

“The Post Office wanted the public to experience the victory and excitement of this historic win and even inspire young people to excel in their chosen sports following the footsteps of our own Filipino pride, Ms. Hidilyn Diaz”, he added.

Diaz bagged the Philippines’s first Olympic Gold Medal on July 27, ending the country’s 97-year Olympic gold medal drought. Zeus Legaspi
