To say that the Philippines is one big dissappointment is one fetching understatement.
Where were Eric Ang and Harry Tañamor? The swimmers were okay and Mark Javier showed some guts but however, his was not enough for a medal.
I feel bad for the taekwondo jins Toni Rivero and Tshomlee Go. I know they did their best out there and I just felt really sad for both of them. They really deserved a medal each.
However, we have a consolation medal courtesy of Willy Wang. He won a wushu gold, far and away from most Filipinos consciousness. At least there's some wound-licking for us, an ego booster after a string of disappointments of Olympic-sized proportions. C'mon, a Filipino citizen from the Philippines has won an Olympic event. Ain't that reason enough to be happy?
A gold's still a gold, even if it's just a demonstration event.
