All were well-deserved tributes to our historic Olympian.

Nothing lifts the spirit quite like an Olympic gold victory. Though the incessant rain and pandemic woes have plagued Filipinos as of late, weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz provided that much needed boost of morale when she won the top spot for the women’s 55kg weightlifting category at the Tokyo 2020 Olymics. The historic triumph by the 30-year-old marks the first time the Philippines has ever won a gold medal at the prestigious international games. And it’s safe to say that her win came at the right time when her country needed her the most.

Twitter exploded with congratulatory messages, and the internet stopped for a moment to recognize Hidilyn’s hard work, determination, and sacrifice to become the Philippines’ first Olympic gold medalist. Even celebrities were quick to post their tributes and inspiring words of praise, because we all know a newly minted hero when we see one. Here, we rounded up the best reactions to the weightlifter’s record-breaking and jaw-clenching moment at the Olympics.
