The girl on the middle looks like a dude!

Anyways
Pinoys should play smart. Not only in our daily lives but also in sport.

Most pinoys are below the height average. We should invest more on sports that doesnt exploit this physical disadvantage.
Grats !!

Agree. Realistically though, how many barbel do we see in a plaza. Anybody can go to any court, barehanded, and only wearing tsinelas, and play basketball.

I think the height issue is all about nutrition. Invest in that.

First Filipina Olympic medalist.

Good question. I looked at the results - the difference between the Taiwanese and Hildlyn is 12 kg. The difference between Hidlyn and the Korean is 1 kg, Hidlyn and the 5th or 6th place was only like 7 kgs. Mmmmmmmmmm......

I guess basketball is one sure easy and quick way of diverting youngsters' attention instead of turning to shabu. Afterall, this is for youngsters' development. I am, indeed, happy that we have garnered a silver medal in weightlifting. I hope we get something in boxing. Hey, Wesley So is #7 in the world again.

PH rules int’l math competition

Why are we not excelling in gymnastics?

If given proper funding for training, malamang mag-ala China tayo sa field na to.

Let me hazard a guess: those whiz kids won because we already have K-12 implemented which prepared them well for the quizzes!

The local government is preparing a hero's welcome for Rio Olympics silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz next Monday who will be returning home on August 14, Sunday.
The welcome ceremonies will honor the feat of Diaz, who made history with her podium-finish at the 53 kg weightlifting competition, the valiant performance of fellow Zamboangueño Nestor Colonia for placing 16th out of 19 participants, and the support of coaches Prof. Elbert Atilano Sr. and Alfonsito Aldanete at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Enhorabuena Hidilyn y Nestor, y maga atleta Filipino!

Pinoys descended from Austronesian/ mayo-polynesians which by built are basically compact.
The component of physique which is passed through genes are shaped through environment, food, climate etc. Like for example giraffes, over the years their necklines streched out coz their ancestors constantly practice reaching out food on high places since its more abundant there as most animals could reach it.

Back to pinoys, should over the years or generations we will have access to good nutrition like high protein diets, eventually future pinoys will have bigger physic and taller to some extent. The diet of pinoys din kasi mostly carbo. Anyway, due to genetic mixing, thats why some of pinoys nowadays are a bit taller. I think the average male height for the world is around 5'9".

Kaso, nowadays, lots of pinoys have access to good food and can afford it, BUT instead of growing vertically, they had grown horizontally. If my memory serves me right, the height thing would be established later on the generations since the primary body reaction to foods would be fat accumulation.

So even if pinoys can afford to access good food if the diet would still be constant, ganun pa rin.

good food does not mean jollibee and mcdonalds. My cousins didn't mix with foreigners , both their parents are short to average height , the only difference was their better diet. Now they are all taller than their parents. marameng malnourished na bata kaya mga pandak.
