Marestella Torres, Southeast Asia’s long jump queen and record holder, didn’t make it to bring home the Olympic gold medal. She tried her best to win in the midst of the calamity the country is facing brought about by continuous heavy rains and floods.
But her attempt was not enough to carry her through the top 12. She ends up 22nd of the 28 athletes competing in the women’s long jump event.
Anyway, we’re still proud of you Maristella for giving your best and for representing our country in 2012 London Olympics.
