Manny Pacquiao or some local singer or performer who made it big on international stage are NOT a product of the Philippine system. If anything, just like in case of Pacquiao, the system drove him to become a boxer because he had NO OTHER OPTIONS to make a living. Filipinos have NOTHING substantial support to have enabled Pacquiao to improve his game to what he is today, he can thank his Training Coaches for that.
And NO, prayers and tweeted moral support do not count.
Now here you have athletes that are supposed to be the PRODUCT of the Philippine Sports Program.
A Sports program by your National Government that REPRESENTS the Pinoys.
A Sports Program FUNDED BY your pinoy taxes.
A Sports Bureau managed by heads APPOINTED by the government leaders pinoys ELECTED.
Now looking at those circumstance, its obvious that pinoys have MORE AT STAKE in these divers compared to Pacquiao.
