Philippines’ Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz has already received the token of gratitude she was promised to have: her very own Kia Stonic.

The brand-new Stonic—the top-of-the -line version at that— was awarded to the country’s first-ever gold after being hailed as Atletang Magiting(brave athlete) by the Ayala Foundation for bagging the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

"Thank you sa pag-recognize sa pagka-panalo ko. Thank you so much na na-appreciate ninyo yung nagawa ko para sa bansa (Thank you for recognizing my achievement. Thank you so much for appreciating my efforts for the country),” Diaz said, noting that the vehicle will be helpful for her to move around especially in Metro Manila.

Meanwhile, Ayala Foundation President Ruel Maranan was quoted as saying:

Maraming salamat sa lahat ng iyong hirap, pagtyatyaga, sakripisyo at mataimtim na pananampalataya, tunay kang isang  Atletang Magiting. KI-nayang A-butin ang ating gintong pangarap. Tanggapin mo ang munting alay namin, sasakyan ng Kampeon (Many thanks for all the hardship, perseverance, sacrifice and sincere faith—you are truly a brave athlete. You have reached everyone’s golden dream. Kindly accept our small token—a car of a champion),” he said.

The Atletang Magiting recognition is part of Ayala Foundation’s Maging Magiting “(Be Brave) campaign to promote love of country. The Ayala Foundation, through the said campaign, calls on Filipinos to take pride in our heritage and identity, by giving honor to our national emblems such as the flag, while also embodying the call for all of us to be heroes in our own ways.

The initiative has a recognition component, like the Pulis Magiting X Pilipinong Magiting, which was recently relaunched in six regions to celebrate men and women in uniform who have shown extraordinary acts of heroism beyond the call of duty.
