But the one that went viral the most was the greeting from Orocan. Not only did the brand congratulate Diaz, but it also seemed to call out the other companies saying how they turned a blind eye to the athlete’s cry for help last year, but they suddenly cheered on her when she won.

“Wag na tayong magplastikan,” it said.

Diaz’s journey to claiming the gold medal was not a smooth one as back in 2019. The athlete admitted that she’s having trouble with the finances while training for the Olympics.

In an Instagram Story, she wrote, “Is it okay to ask sponsorship sa mga private companies towards Tokyo 2020? Hirap na hirap na ko, I need financial support.”

She further said that she’s embarrassed to ask for donations, but she needed to do it for her dream to take home the gold in the Olympics.
