We could have won a medal in taekwondo and archery. But it was just in the mind of the overly optimistic Celso Dayrit. Obviously athletes do their best but the methods are just out of the way. Not at par with the best in the world. Let us develop sports such as athletics, get taller boxers, more taekwondo players, recruit more table tennisters, in badminton, football and any other sports not requiring height advantage. Recall the words of a Chinese winner of the 110m hurdles: yellow-skinned people can also win.
