Marvic Leonen says all PH athletes deserve recognition despite medals
Associate Justice Marvic Leonen appeals for fair treatment of all athletes. The abogado said that the Philippine athletes all persevered and worked hard through adversity to get where they are.
Many of our national athletes waded through poverty, persevered, and mastered their sport not only for themselves but for their families. Despite all these they now find themselves among the elite in their field. They deserve recognition regardless of the color of their medals.
