17-year old Martinez finished 19th last night after an impressive performance against seasoned skaters.
He is proof that it doesn’t take a gold medal to bring pride and honor to the country.As reported in Interaksyon, Martinez will receive a $10k bonus from business tycoon Manny V. Pangilinan for his efforts. The bonus was said to be coursed through the MVP Sports Foundation.
