HIDILYN Diaz let out her frustration over the sad state of Philippine weightlifting, particularly the gym where she trains at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.
In a tweet on Wednesday night, Diaz shared her sentiments as she took a photo of the weightlifting gym and lamented the fact that the said facility, according to a coach she did not name, has not seen changes or improvements in decades.
“Nagtataka pa ba tayo bakit hanggang ngayon wala pa tayong gold medal sa Olympics? Sabi ni coach, 1990 pagpunta niya dito sa Manila ganito na ang gym. Hanggang ngayon ganito pa rin,” wrote Diaz on her Twitter account @diaz_hidilyn.
