AirAsia Philippines has given Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz lifetime free flights for her hard work, passion, and sportsmanship. 

“We thank her for reminding us that being the world’s best is second to serving the Filipinos,” AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said in a statement.

Diaz wins ends the near century-long Olympic gold medal drought since the country competed in the games in 1924. So far, the Philippines has since won three silvers and seven bronze. 

The Filipina weightlifter won a silver medal in the women’s 53kg in the 2016 Rio Olympics. 

In Tokyo, she finished with a total score of 224kg, lifting 97 in the snatch and 127 in the clean, and defeated China’s Liao Qiuyun for the gold. 

The first Filipina gold medalist will receive a total of P33.5 million plus a Tagaytay City house and hot. She will also receive P10 million from the government, as per law; P10 million from Manny V. Pangilinan; P10 million from Ramon S. Ang; P3 million from deputy speaker Mikee Romero; and P2.5 million from her hometown Zamboanga City also by law.
