City councilor Elbert Atilano confirmed the development in an interview with Peter Lucas on Radyo Pilipinas 2.

Atilano is also one of Diaz’s first coaches in her hometown of Zamboanga City before she became the golden girl of the Philippines in the Olympics.

Atilano said the city plans to build the statue in a well-populated area so that Diaz can serve as an inspiration especially to the youth.

    “May resolution na to instruct the city engineer office and other branch of government to look at a place kung saan ilalagay ‘yung rebulto para makita ng mga bata,” said Atilano.

    The homecoming of Diaz in Zamboanga may have to wait as the Filipina weightlifter is required to take a mandatory seven-day quarantine at Sofitel.
