The country's first Olympic gold medalist is on the cover of the magazine's 20th anniversary

Fashion and lifestyle magazine Tatler Philippines featured the country’s first Olympic gold medalist, Hidilyn Diaz, on the cover of their 20th anniversary issue.

“As the Philippines’ first-ever Olympic gold medalist since it joined the Olympics 97 years ago, the Zamboanga-born weightlifting champion embodies the same excellence and influence that define this premier luxury magazine in the Philippines today. She narrates her losses and wins in life, and how her passion and perseverance kept her eyes on the prize,” reads Tatler’s teaser for the issue.

Hidilyn was shot by veteran photographer Mark Nicdao, who also posted on his Instagram other takes from the photoshoot.

“A Salute to Hidilyn and Team HD and [Tatler Philippines],” said Nicdao.

Hidilyn made history on July 26 after winning the Philippines’ first ever Olympic gold medal in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The Olympian also recorded a 97kg in the snatch and an Olympic record 127kg in the clean and jerk for a total of 224kg, which was also an Olympic record. – Rappler.com
