Default Pacquiao's success foiling Filipino hopes (in olympics)

Whatdyathink mga kapatid?


Quote:
SINGAPORE (Reuters) - The success of Manny Pacquiao is delivering a knockout blow to Filipino dreams of a first Olympic gold medal, with young boxers fast-tracking to the professional ranks in a desperate bid to escape poverty and emulate the success of their hero.

Manny Pinol, a former governor of North Cotabato and current manager of boxers through his Braveheart Boxing stable, says the success of the eight-weight world champion is hindering the amateur Olympic program at home.
Despite boasting a population of over 100 million and a love of boxing, the Philippines will send just one fighter to the London Olympics later this year - the same number as the tiny Seychelles - leaving little hope of adding to the three bronze and two silvers won by their boxers in previous Games.

All this while Pacquiao (welterweight), Nonito Donaire (super-bantamweight), Sonny Boy Jaro (flyweight), and Donnie Nietes (light flyweight) hold world titles in the pro ranks.

"Manny Pacquiao's success is hurting our amateur boxing programme because every young boy now would like to become Manny Pacquiao," Pinol told Reuters in a recent interview in Singapore.

"They don't want to be amateur because there is simply no money in it, it is just a dream of a (Olympic) gold and it is actually more difficult to win than a world boxing title."

In the Philippines, the rags to riches story of Pacquiao, who came from a poverty stricken broken home to become the first man to win world titles in eight divisions, and then be elected a congressman, inspires a nation.

There was money, what happened to the incentives? I heard it was 15 million pesos for a gold medal, 2.5 for sliver, and 1 million for bronze. Also, the Philippines has won a medal in boxing since 1996 so how can they blame Pac for that?
