Lin Dan was 33 years old in 2016 --the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London GOLD medalists.
Chen Long is 32 years old this year-- the 2016 Rio GOLD medalist. and he defeated Axelson in Semi-final.

Viktor Axelsen was born in 1994....

Philippines was rich at a time when rest of Asia was a warzone like middle-east and hungry like Africa. Indeed Marcos and other leaders didn't do anything to improve anything. But it's delusional if you believe that PHL was some sort of great economic power those days.

All other Asian states were either important for west and got their critical industries or were a couple like China, India and Japan who had capacity to create their own industries.

US itself came to benefit those Japan, Singapore or SoKo. Even in their ruins those days, they were geographically more important and had more diverse economy to grow.

The best bet for Philippines to attract US favour is to blackmail it by pandering China and probably even shift to China (because US is unlikely to care). Sucking on like master-slave relationship hasn't brought PHL anywhere.

Philippines isn't UK, France, Russia, Japan, India, Iran or even equivalent to Brazil and Mexico. Since it doesn't have its own clout, it doesn't need a consistent posturing while taking sides. That's detrimental for small nations.
You better read more about Asian history. The Philippines was more destroyed than India and perhaps only second to Japan. Manila alone was considered the 2nd most destroyed allied City after Warsaw in WW2. But despite that by 1960s we were roaring. Then came Marcos dictatorship and his populist policies. The rest is well known history.

The fight between Philippines and Ukrainian boxer was epic. It was a slug fest from the start. But the Ukrainian came out on top. Kodus to both boxers!


The Philippine boxer got bronze.
