Senator and Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao has expressed his happiness on the back to back victory of gymnast Carlos Yulo and boxer Nesthy Petecio who bagged gold medals over the weekend.

Yulo won the first ever gold medal at the world artistic gymnastics championships while Petecio won gold at 2019 AIBA Women’s Boxing World Championships.

Pacquiao said that the government should now shifts its focus on other sports other than basketball instead of wasting funds on sports that gives immediate advantage for big and tall athletes like basketball.

“Just like many Filipinos, I love basketball and there is nothing wrong with it. But as far as the government’s sports development policy is concerned, we should refocus our resources and energy on other sports because there is no way that we could beat bigger and faster players in world basketball,” Pacquiao said in a statement.

“We should pour more support on weight-classed sports and other sports that does not give undue advantage to bigger and taller athletes,” he added.

The boxing champ also said that the government should also improve sports facilities in cities and towns nationwide.
