The Zamboanga native, who is competing in her fourth Olympics, becomes the first Filipino athlete to clinch the gold at the Summer Olympics since the country first sent athletes to the Games in 1924.

According to R.A. No. 10699 signed by the late President Benigno S. Aquino III in 2015, a Filipino Olympic gold medalist is entitled to P10 million while P5 million and P2 million are in store for silver and bronze winners, respectively.
