Statement of Senator Nancy Binay on Gilas Pilipinas'
campaign in the 2015 FIBA Asian Championships

Gilas Pilipinas exemplifies the courage and the strength of the Filipino - to overcome and to succeed, even if the odds are stacked against him. Gilas Pilipinas showed the world the big heart that every Filipino has.

I share with the rest of the Filipino nation the joy and happiness that we have held our own against tough competition, and we hold our heads up high with our showing. We are reclaiming our pride and glory, towards a brighter future.

For eleven days, every Filipino has rooted for its national team, transfixed in every play, every shot, every assist, every rebound - all for flag and country.

Gilas Pilipinas have shown that if we put our hearts and minds into whatever we do, despite the adversities we face, we can and will succeed.

I hope that through Gilas Pilipinas and other sporting teams, every Filipino will be continuously inspired to achieve their dreams.

Mabuhay ang Filipino! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
