On top of at least P33 million cash reward, some residential properties are also waiting for Hidilyn Diaz.

In a press conference, Philippine Olympic Committee president and Rep. Abraham Tolentino said that a house and lot in Tagaytay would be waiting for Diaz following her historic gold medal triumph in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

He added that a van from Foton would also be among the rewards for Diaz as well.

Also on Tuesday, property developer Megaworld said they will also provide a condominium unit for Diaz in Eastwood City, according to a report by GMA News Online's Ted Cordero.

Diaz is the Philippines' first Olympic gold medalist after ruling the women's weightlifting 55-kg event.

Earlier this month, on July 13, Tolentino had said in a Philippine Sportswriters Association forum that a house and lot will be given to Philippine athletes who win a gold medal.

"Sigurado ako na meron pang susunod. Marami po akong sinulatan, tinawagan. Hindi ko na lang sasabihin, hintayin ko na lang 'yung paglabas ng commitment nila. Pero minimum P30-M yun, meron pang mga kasunod 'yan," Tolentino said.
