Now, this is what I'm talking about.
Vanessa Sarno destroyed three SEA Games records en route to a gold medal finish and...
... is she wearing braces?
As I said a day ago when Hidilyn Diaz scored another SEA Games gold medal, we need to develop more weightlifting fairies because for reasons due to a lot of things... we are good in this sport.
And the thing about her is that she can be marketable. She bows like a stage actress or some high schooler who is going to participate in some sort of Balagtasan (she could, after the games) when she goes onto the stage and she breaks a smile after an attempt. Of course, this will not always be the case but what if she's going to be this kind of athlete in the future?
The 18-year-old from Bohol Institute of Technology is also a 1-time Asian Weightlifting Champion in the 71kg division.
Yes, Hidilyn Diaz can still go but it's a wonderful problem to have two weightlifting fairies sharing the spotlight.
