The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines – A reward of $10,000 awaits Filipino skater Michael Christian Martinez when he comes home after his noteworthy showing in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

This after businessman and sports patron Manny V. Pangilinan promised to hand Martinez the said cash incentive through the MVP Sports Foundation.

Pangilinan’s close associate Chot Reyes – also the head coach of Gilas Pilipinas – confirmed this on his Twitter account.

The 17-year-old Martinez, the Philippines’ lone representative to the Winter Olympics, proved his worth in the men’s figure skating competition with a couple of impressive performances.

He already made history by becoming the first skater from the Philippines and Southeast Asia to participate in the quadrennial event sports meet.
