Didal joins Taguig's National Women's Month celebration
Three-time gold medalist Margielyn Didal shared her knowledge and inspired 50 young women who want to learn skateboarding in a Skateboard Clinic held in BCDA Covered Court, Brgy. Ususan. The clinic was part of the celebration of National Women's Month, spearheaded by the office of Senator Pia Cayetano, in partnership with the local government of Taguig under the leadership of Mayor Lani Cayetano.
The program aims to showcase their dedication to promoting gender equality in sports and providing opportunities and support to female athletes. Senator Pia Cayetano personally attended the event to deliver her inspirational message to the participants.
"When I see a female athlete, like Margie, doing what they do, which is world-class, it sends a message to the whole world, that girls are just as good as boys, sometimes better," Senator Pia said.
Didal not only showed her skills but also shared her experiences with the attendees. She inspired them to dream big and achieve their goals.
"Happy International Women's Month to all the people of Taguig. Try skating or any sport, let me know if I can help, just enjoy and be safe," Didal greeted the sports clinic participants.
Didal is a Professional Street Skateboarder who brought honor to the country by winning three gold medals. She won her first gold medal in the 2018 Asian Games, and two more in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games in different divisions of skateboarding. She was also named one of Time Magazine's Most Influential Teens in 2018.
Councilor Marisse Balina-Eron, SK Federation Chair Beng Maximo, and the Taguig City Sports Development Office joined the event. They highlighted the positive impact of sports on mental health and self-confidence, especially among women.
"I'm happy that the City of Taguig is always open to making sports a part of life, and especially including women in every decision-making they make as a city. We also include women in making laws for our country," Senator Pia added.
