In celebration of #FilipinoPride, Summit Natural Drinking Water joins all Filipinos as they rally their support to Filipina Weight Lifter Hidilyn Diaz and Filipino Pole Vaulter Ernest John “EJ” Obiena as they make their preparations for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
Throughout the years, Summit Natural Drinking Water has been consistent in supporting our Philippine Athletes as well as the entire Filipino community in terms of redefining their limits and making breakthroughs that puts the Filipino’s renowned global legacy in continuity. Contributing to the training and hydration of our athletes, Summit Natural Drinking Water makes it a commitment to encourage people to reach the summit of their dreams as they turn them into reality.
Hidilyn Diaz is a Filipina Weightlifter and Air Woman. Being the first Filipino woman to win an Olympic Medal, she made her mark on the world earning global reputation as she bagged the Silver Medal in the Women’s 53-kilogram Weight Division in the 2016 Summer Olympics. Her contributions finally ended the Philippines’ 20-year Olympic Medal drought.
Along with that, she also brought home various Olympic Medals from different competitions and categories from all around the world.
Ernest John “EJ” Obiena is a pole vaulter and the first Filipino that has received a scholarship from the International Athletic Association Federation. He currently holds the Philippine National Record in Pole Vaulting with a record of 5.55 meters at the 78th Singapore Open Championship in 2016.
A record-breaking pole-vaulter, Obiena won a gold medal after he broke the Asian Athletics Championship record with 5.71 meters last 2019.
