By Prince Golez
Gymnast Carlos Edriel Yulo and boxer Nesthy Petecio are scheduled to meet with President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang on Tuesday.
“They will be meeting with the President. They will have a courtesy call,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo confirmed Monday.
Over the weekend, Yulo won the gold medal in the floor exercise event at the 49th FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championship in Germany.
He had earlier qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after placing 18th out of 160 participants in the men’s individual all-around final.
Petecio also bagged gold in the 2019 AIBA Women’s Boxing World Championships held in Russia.
