well just recently diha koy theory nadunggan bahin ani;

Ang China ang gabahug sa CPP para di ta moasenso kay kon moasenso ta naa na ta resources para pangusgan ato claim sa Kalayaan Island Group maong gahilum-hilum ra sila kabahin sa Chinese intrusions.

on the other hand, ang Malaysia gibahugan ang MILF kay nahadlok sila nga moabot ang panahon kitay moasenso kaya na nato i.finance ang pagbawi sa Sabah pareha sa Jabidah movement.

so mao nang di pa ta ka move-on aning mga samokan sa katilingban..

i posted that news article in relation to this article written in the latest issue of bohol standard


Bohol has a living Olympian. Where and how is he now?
Where is Bohol’s ‘living’ Olympian?
By: FRED C. AMORA (www.theboholstandard.com)

As the spectacular London Olympics 2012 opening unfolded Friday, a Boholano boxer sat at home in front a small television set reminiscing sweet-bitter memories of these games he once participated in 1968.

Teogenes Peligrino, now 63 years old, living in Basdio, Guindulman, Bohol recalled the Mexico 1968 Olympics saying he still feel proud of his contribution to the country in the field of boxing although somehow sad of the seeming ingratitude he painfully suffers until these days.

Peligrino, 17 years old, was the only fighter in the 5-man Philippine Boxing Team in the Mexico 1968 Olympics that posted a win. He was eliminated on the second set of the preliminaries by the US boxer Albert Robinson who later became champion in the finals.

He said he could still feel the excitement, hear the loud cheering and the euphoria after he knocked out in the second round of the preliminary bout in the 57 kg featherweight division Ethiopian boxer Seybu Fontahun.

The four other boxers were eliminated early in the first rounds of the preliminaries. For his win, Peligrino was carried on the shoulders by his boxing team mates and was later accorded a hero’s Philippine flag raising ceremony at the foot of Jose Rizal Monument in the midst of a plaza in Mexico City.

In the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games, competing together with Peligrino in boxing was George Foreman of the USA in 75 kg division who won gold in the finals and later became the heavyweight champion of the world.

BROKEN PROMISES
Upon returning to the Philippines, then President Ferdinand Marcos personally congratulated him at the Malacañang Palace with a promised reward of P1M pesos while the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines (ABAP) told Peligrino he will get a Mustang sports car as added prize.

None of those promised rewards were given and all that he got was the $20 a day (at P4 to a $ foreign exchange that time) stipend allowance for the boxing team that competed in the 1968 Mexico Olympics.

In the selection process for the national boxing team to the Mexico Olympics, Peligrino fought 18 bouts and won them all by knockout making him the champion in the Class- A featherweight division.

Peligrino was also an Asean Games 1967 Silver Medalist held in Colombo, Ceylon. In the finals, he knocked down Korean boxer Kim Ding but the judges awarded a win and gold medal to the Korean boxer stripping Peligrino that clear victory.

The following year, Peligrino avenged his loss and proved to his countrymen that he was indeed the Asean champion by knocking out Korean boxer Kim Ding in an amateur boxing event held at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.

After his Olympic stint, Peligrino turned professional and fought 32 bouts winning all of them, 30 by knockout. Only two boxers, Pat Gonzalez and Carlito Kid, who later became Philippine champions in higher weight divisions, escaped his hammer punch and survived the 10 rounds.

In 1997, a Philippine Daily Inquirer story about Peligrino’s Olympic feat caught the attention of then Guindulman mayor, the late Atty. Gaudioso Ranario, who suggested a lifetime pension plan for Peligrino and for appropriation of funds for such purpose.

A member of the municipal council struck out the pension plan for reasons Peligrino could not understand up to this time.

SUN SETS
Today, Peligrino is suffering from ulcer and kidney problems. He survives by fishing with his net in the sea using a small paddled boat. His four boys and one daughter did not finish college and now have families of their own. Like him, they survive by fishing.

One of his sons tried amateur boxing but after four fights, Peligrino said he had to stop him. He saw no future in boxing that time, while nursing the bitterness he felt after his experience at the Olympics.

Peligrino is Bohol’s only living Olympian, doesn’t smoke, is a happy family man and respected in his small community. The missing part of his story is the answer to the question: “how a nation who cheered Peligrino in his boxing heydays and with his contribution to national sporting glory had easily forgotten him?”

As the provincial government leadership launched the BOHOLYMPICS this year, Gov. Edgar Chatto said he would look into the plight of boxer Peligrino with a vow to cherish and gratify sporting accomplishments like these as iconic idols for Bohol’s future Olympians.

Kabataan party list is one of the legal arms of the CPP-NPAs who are espousing communism.

Well, because of the heat generated by this controversy/travesty, he withdrew his proposed bill..
