MANILA (Mabuhay) – As it wished good luck to the Philippines’ bet in the ongoing Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Malacañang on Saturday called on Filipinos to show their support for him as well.

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said the Palace is confident Michael Christian Martinez will excel in figure skating despite the lack of snow in the Philippines.

“We hope the Filipino people are behind Christian and his quest for gold at the Sochi Olympics,” Lacierda said on state-run dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.

Martinez, 17, is representing the Philippines in the figure skating competition.

Lacierda said the Palace is “very, very proud” of such athletes, and is confident they can excel when given the chance.

Sana pagpalain kayo ng ating Panginoon. Kayang kaya natin yan (We hope God will be with you. You can do it),” he said. (MNS)
