The Filipino is the epitome of passion. We give ourselves fully to everything we do. We belt out killer high notes during sidestreet karaoke sessions. We offer heart and soul when cooking in kitchen. And as the world most recently found out during last year’s FIBA qualifiers, we are the best sports fans in the planet.
PUSO! That is the shout used by the entire nation in supporting our local Gilas basketball team. In the newspaper, in social media sites, on TV and inside offices and classrooms, the Filipino is as one when it comes to supporting sports. We rally behind our ‘sports gods’ like the legendary Efren “Bata” Reyes, the “Filipino Flash“ Nonito Donaire, and of course, the entire country comes to a standstill while watching the epic fights of the great Maaaaaannnnyyy Paccquuiaaooo!!!
The Philippines is a treasure trove of sports heroes. Boxers, swimmers, runners, and even champion Dragon Boat rowing athletes are on the rise in the country. And with renewed training and development efforts being continued for the youth today, we can only expect a new generation of die-hard fans to come out and support Philippines sports with passion, desire, and PUSO!
