GINATILAN, CEBU — The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) on Saturday, September 18, 2021, has launched its latest set of stamps honoring four Filipinos athletes who made the country proud during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The featured athletes included weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz, who won the country’s first Olympic gold medal; boxers Nesthy Petecio and Carlo Paalam, who both won silver medals; and  Eumir Marcial, who won a bronze medal also in boxing. 

The stamps will highlight the winning moment of each medalist.

“The first stamp of its kind in the world – promoting vaccination as a way to fight the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19),” the post added.
