Filipino gold medalists in the recently concluded Asian Games in Indonesia did not only return home with a gold medal, they also returned with a cash prize of Php8 million.

Silver medalists also received an additional Php500,000 from Duterte.

The medalists received the cash prize in the Palace on Wednesday, September 12, where Duterte expressed how proud he is of the athletes.

“The entire country looks forward to your next win as you secure your place in your respective fields and wave our flag high and proud for the world to see…. Mabuhay ang atletang Pilipino,” Duterte said.

Present to receive the cash incentives were gold medalists Hidilyn Diaz (weightlifting), Margielyn Didal (skateboarding), Yuka Saso (golf), silver medalist Rogen Ladon (boxing), and bronze medalist Agatha Wong (wushu).
