I’m excited to watch Michael Christian Martinez recital in the men’s figure skating competition of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. He is the first Filipino figure skater to compete in the Games and also the first Southeast Asian to see action in the event.
Michael Martinez, ranked fifth in the world in the junior division, made a ticket to Sochi with a seventh-place finish in the Neblehorn Trophy Tournament in Germany in September last year.
He will compete with his idols such as three-time world champion Patrick Chan of Canada, 2010 Olympic bronze medalist Daisuke Takahashi of Japan, European titlist Lorent Amodio of France and US champion Max Aaron.
It will be aired live on TV5 at 11. Actually, it’s now airing and already saw our very own Michael Christian Martinez on the ice rink. I think his at number 5, the first one from Canada is already performing. Well, good luck Michael Christian Martinez, you are already a winner no matter what.
