QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo has a piece of advice for. Carlos Yulo, Filipino gymnast who is competing in the Tokyo Olympics.
Yulo could possibly be the first Filipino to win gold in the Olympics. He is currently World Artistic Gymnastics champion.
In a text message to Yulo, Robredo said that if the Filipino olympian wins the gold in Tokyo, he should salute the Philippine flag when the national anthem is played during the medal awards ceremony.
Robredo is known for saluting the Philippine flag, despite being a civilian, instead of the usual protocol of putting the hand against the chest.
