The Philippine Postal Office released stamps in the likes of Hidilyn Diaz, Anthony Villanueva, and Mansueto “Onyok” Velasco. The three are all Filipino Olympic medalists.
Each of their stamps contains a photo of the medalist along with their Olympic medal. Each stamp is priced at P12.
Hidilyn broke our country’s 20-year Olympic drought after winning the silver medal in the 53-kg division of weightlifting. She also makes history as the first Filipina to win an Olympic medal.
Anthony is the first Filipino to win an Olympic medal. He won a silver medal in boxing at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.
Onyok also won a silver medal in boxing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
Hidilyn, Anthony, and Onyok joined the ranks of Manny Pacquiao and Pia Wurtzbach, who also have their own stamps.
Cool! What do you think?
