Inamin ni “Samahang Weightlifting ng Pilipinas” o SWP President Monico Puentevella na pinayuhan niya umano si Olympics gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz na maghinay-hinay na umano ito sa weightlifting at mag-enjoy sa kaniyang buhay may-asawa.
Hindi umano panghabambuhay ang weightlifting at sinabihan niya si Diaz na i-enjoy ang mga bagay na nakuha niya at patuloy na tinatamasa niya ngayon dahil sa karangalang dinala niya sa bansa.
Bukod sa karangalan, marami sa kababaihan ang nabigyang-inspirasyon ni Diaz, at napukaw ang atensiyon tungkol sa wieghtlifting.
“Hidilyn has done so much for this country. I expect Hidilyn to try her best because she really wants to be in Paris. But I told her weightlifting is not forever, have a child, enjoy, because you have so much blessings in life. May pera, libre ang kotse, libre ang bahay, libre lahat. she has millions,” pahayag ng dating mayor ng Bacolod na si Puentevella sa isang panayam.
Bagama’t concern lamang si Puentevella ay marami naman sa mga netizen ang nagsabing hindi raw dapat pinanghihimasukan ang desisyon ni Hidilyn.
May mga netizen na nagsabing makalumang kaisipan na raw na ang tanging silbi ng mga babae ay magkaroon ng anak o manatili na lamang sa loob ng bahay.
“Pag alaki magpatuloy sa pangarap pero pag babae mag-settle sa pagpapamilya at anak? 2022 na hilig n’yo pa rin manghimasok sa buhay ng mga babae.”
“So what if she already has millions? Weightlifting is her passion and it shows that money wont stop her. If having a child wasn’t part of the plan yet, then just let her continue what she loves to do.”
“Even if gustuhin ni Hidilyn magka-anak it will take years to conceive because of her passion, as far as I know maari naapektuhan ang matres niya sa pag weightlifting. So let her enjoy the success and victory for awhile they’re newlyweds naman.”
“Sabi nya nga she has millions. She can freeze her eggs. She has so many options. Let this woman do what she loves until she can!! Correct. Weightlifting is not forever. As long as she is in her prime, LET HER DO IT!!!!!! Imbyerna!”
“May expiration talaga ang athlete, but she is at her peak now. She is at her best. She can still go one more Olympics even 2 depende sa condition ng katawan. All the millions she has now, she deserved it and worked hard for it. I do not think any athlete will stop just because they became a millionaire. Pacquiao is a billionaire, but he still wants to fight. Efren’s is still playing. It is just how they are wired. Lalaban hangga’t kaya.”
“I don’t think that’s panghihimasok naman. His expectations are telling us he believes in Hidilyn. I guess what he wants Hidilyn to understand is to enjoy her life and not put too much pressure as she doesn’t have to live roughly anymore. Her hard work paid off and now she can afford to live her life the way she wants it. It’s kind of different as women age, compared to men, and it may be hard for her to conceive when she decides to have a baby if she continues training harder.”
Samantala, wala pang komento ang SWP president tungkol sa kaniyang naging pahayag na kinomentuhan ng mga netizen.
