San Jose, California – We interrupt the news to bring you this very historic Philippine Olympic moment, direct from the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia! Seventeen year-old Michael Christian Martinez skated to the music of “Romeo & Juliet” in the men’s short program of the figure skating competitions. The youngest of the 30 competitors, Michael finished No. 19 and made it to the “magic 24” that will advance to the free skate program on February 14.
