    AMIDST the fanfare of Hidilyn Diaz’s return to the country, skateboarding Margielyn Didal also arrived in Manila following her respectable campaign in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

    Didal was in the plane that had Diaz along with her team as well as fellow weightlifter Elreen Ando on Wednesday night. She, however, needed the assistance of a wheelchair in order to move at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

    Why was Margielyn Didal on a wheelchair?

    Apparently, the 22-year-old Didal suffered an ankle injury during the women’s street competition but was able to reach the finals despite being hurt. This explains why Didal was hobbling following one of the routines that she executed in the competition.
