POC partner vows support for Olympians’ hometowns


Milo announced on Friday that the hometowns of all 19 athletes who competed in the recent Tokyo Olympics will be receiving Nestlé products as a gesture of gratitude and appreciation for their outstanding performance that resulted to the country clinching one gold, two silver and one bronze medals.

“We at Miloare extremely proud of every one of our athletes for raising the country’s banner in the biggest sporting event in the world,” said Lester Castillo, assistant vice president of Nestlé Philippines-Milo.

“Their success serves as an inspiration to all Filipinos,” Castillo added. “We have witnessed from the Games that sports are truly a great life teacher—through grit, perseverance, and discipline, one can reach their dreams and ambitions.”

Throughout the Olympic campaign, Milo worked closely with the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) to support the country’s representatives.

Milo and POC have been collaborating through the years in uplifting Philippine sports through various programs and initiatives. Earlier this year, they renewed their partnership with a four-year pact to support homegrown athletes and accelerate grassroots sports in the long term.

“The renewed support of Milo is a welcome view,” POC President Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino said in a speech during the Living Archive of Olympians PH virtual launch. “We are indeed happy and grateful, because it is Milo itself who have been our sports icon since our youth…that is the reason why Milo is the most fitting partner for this endeavor.”
