Cojuangco: PH will end Olympic drought with 5 golds in Tokyo 2020

The Philippines won’t simply end the country’s gold medal drought in the Olympics in the 2020 Tokyo Games. But it’s going to do so in style.

Philippine Olympic Committee president Jose Cojuangco Jr. believes Filipino athletes are capable of winning five gold medals in Tokyo, but only if the country puts up the proper training facilities needed for these athletes to succeed.

“I already have two sure candidates in mind,” said Cojuangco during the thanksgiving mass and dinner party for the Philippine Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games delegation Friday night at V Corporate building in Makati City.

Cojuangco, however, declined to name the athletes and the national sports associations who can make history by delivering the first-ever gold medal for the Philippines in the Olympics.

“I have a strong feeling they can win it. But I don’t want to mention the sport; I don’t want to pressure them,” said the POC chief. “We just have to fuel them up with high-octane gasoline and their performances can translate into gold medals.”
