“There’s a bright future waiting for him”
He may not bagged any medal in the Men’s Figure Skating event last night, but Filipino Winter Olympian Michael Christian Martinez is still a pride worth of our honor and respect. The 17-year old figure skater, Philippines’ and South East Asia’s first and youngest representative to the Winter Olympics Figure Skating event showed gallantry and determination coupled with gracefulness as he impressed the world of figure skaters. Olympic commentators can’t help but praise him for his performance in the finals. Although he fell in one of his routines, he redeemed himself in the later part of the program, showing great skills on ice.
His Free Program performance was given 119.44 score by the judges, which was added to his Short Program score of 64.81 totaling to 184.25. And that total final score earned him top spot in the 1st batch of performers (1-6 performers).
