Ace pool player Amit stresses importance of failures, too

MANILA, Philippines — Even after 10 medals and a historic feat, Rubilen Amit hopes that fans would see beyond it all.

Now 35 years old, the veteran Cebuana pool player wants that spectators and critics will realize that the losses are as instrumental to their victory as the hard work they put in.

“What you see are these,” points to her latest silver medal that she won in the recently concluded Southeast Asian Games. “Ang ‘di niyo nakikita, ‘yung mga talo namin. Ang dami-dami.”

“What we can do is somehow inspire or motivate,” she added during Usana’s homecoming of their brand ambassadors. “Be resilient. Kung meron mang mga difficulties or struggles, hang in there and keep doing hard work.”

Amit, who is the first Filipina to become a world pool champion, said that it’s the little things that will pave the way for the grand result.
