'Proud maging Pinoy!': Robredo tweets support for PH athletes during Games opening

Vice President Maria Leonor ‘Leni” Robredo was definitely watching history unfolds in Bulacan.

The Vice President cannot hide her elation of the very beautiful Southeast Asian Games opening, in its 30th edition.

"Nakaka-proud maging Pinoy! Maraming salamat sa ating mga atleta, world champions, mga tagapagtanghal, and to everyone behind the #SEAGames2019 opening ceremony," she tweeted.

"Ang dami nating maipagmamalaki bilang isang bansa—at pinakamalakas tayo kapag ang alab ng puso ay iisa🇵🇭 #WeWinAsOne.

The opening saw the parade of more than 5,000 athletes athletes from 11 countries on center stage.

Team Philippines was led by 2020 Olympic pole-vaulter EJ Obiena and Asian Games champion Margielyn Didal.

The carrying of the SEA Games federation flag became nostalgic for the host country, when the Philippines’ sports legend were the one’s carrying it - Alvin Patrimonio, Efren "Bata" Reyes, Mansueto "Onyok" Velasco, Lydia de Vega, Bong Coo, Paeng Nepomuceno, Eric Buhain and Akiko Thomson.

The Chief Executive President Rodrigo Roa Duterte led the opening in the Philippine Arena and was joined by the Sultan of Brunei, Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, whose nephews are part of his country's delegation to the Games.

A few weeks back President Duterte fired Robredo for being the country’s drug czar and co-chair of the of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD).

“She made an asshole of herself. Always talking. Ang ayaw ko dun (What I don’t like about it is) the first thing she did was to go to the embassy of the United States of America, then to the UN (United Nations) then to the EU (European Union),” Duterte said.
