The Asian Games gold-medalist from Cebu has added two more gold medals to her record after winning at the Exposure All Women’s Skateboarding Championships in Huntington Beach, California and the Ladies Day Skate Competition at The Berrics, the Skateboarding and Roller Sports Association of the Philippines said via Facebook on November 3.

And she won both tournaments only within a day.

The 20-year-old Cebuana’s win in the Exposure All Women’s Skateboarding Championships is also her second victory in two straight years.

“Congratulations to Margielyn Didal for earning two championships in a day at the 2019 Exposure All Women’s Skateboarding Championships held in Huntington Beach and the Ladies Day Skate Competition at the Berrics, Los Angeles, both in California, USA. You have made our country proud,” the Philippine Sports Commission expressed on Facebook.

It can be recalled that Didal in September dropped from being ranked 10 to 13 in the Olympic World Skateboarding Ranking after failing to compete in an international skateboarding tournament. This made her “road to Olympics” contention tougher but the Filipina athlete continues her bid to secure an Olympic slot.

Before she sees action in the upcoming Southeast Asian Games, which will be held in the Philippines, Didal will fly to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil to continue gathering scores for her Olympic ranking in a bid to qualify for the Tokyo Games in 2020.

We wish you much luck, Didal!!
