LOOK: Hidilyn Diaz formally gets house and lot reward
Dino Maragay (philstar.com) - August 31, 2016 - 2:01pm

MANILA, Philippines – Olympic silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz is now a new homeowner.

This after Diaz and Deca Homes 8990, a housing company, on Wednesday signed a memorandum of agreement granting the Filipina weightlifter a house and lot as a reward for her accomplishment in the recent Rio Olympics.

The STAR’s Olmin Leyba was present at the MOA signing between figures from the Philippine Olympic Committee and the Philippine Sports Commission, and Deca officials. There, Diaz was also given a symbolic key for her reward.

The house and lot are among the latest perks for the 25-year-old Diaz, who became the first Filipina Olympic medalist after her podium finish in the women’s 53kg weightlifting event in the Rio Olympics.

In achieving the feat, Diaz received P5 million from the government as mandated by the law. President Duterte sweetened the pot by handing out an additional P2 million.

Additionally, she received an undisclosed amount from Sen. Manny Pacquiao when she visited the Senate.

Just last week, budget airline company AirAsia also announced it is giving Diaz and other Olympic silver medalists from ASEAN member nations free flights for five years.
