It’s a tough loss for Team Pilipinas but that doesn’t mean that we should stop. We should definitely try again and again and again until we get to fulfill our Olympic dream.
To those who have been waiting to take a swipe at the team, you ought to read this before throwing your stones:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.“
– Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US President
Mabuhay ang Team Pilipinas! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
