What's common between Olympic Gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz, Olympic Pole Vaulter Ernest John Obiena and the powerful Philippine Women's National Football Team (called Filipinas)? Do you know? Neither do I. Well don't fret as they've figured it out last April 26th when they and water brand Summit Natural Drinking Water forged a partnership for one common goal, to support athletes going to the SEA Games together with the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC). This is their #ThirstForGold
Hidilyn is currently working hard as she makes the impossible happen and take that next Olympic gold in Paris, France. She's done that in Tokyo, so for sure, there will be challenges when other countries try to step it up in the next Olympiad. Same with EJ Obiena as he's planning to conquer the podium finish after missing a couple tournaments because of his COVID-19 sickness a few weeks ago. He's won several of them and it would be a cherry on top if he gets strikes Gold in the Olympics, as he's done remarkable job in the SEA Games in Vietnam, winning Gold for the country. Our football stars the Filipinas on the other hand fell short for the gold, but got Myanmar beat by scoring twice in the last 3 minutes, a feat to get us in the podium with a Bronze after 37 long years. Now, they're back in the country busy preparing for the Women's World Cup that the country will be hosting together with Australia on 2023. Exciting? Yeap! The future certainly looks bright when support comes in Philippine sports.
Summit also partnered with social fitness app Liv3ly to further support Filipino athletes and sports enthusiasts. It'll keep you interested in different sports activities, give you goals and some prizes you wouldn't have in others. Sounds fun? Try it out on the Google Play store as it's free for download today.
