More than the gold medal, the applause and praises of people worldwide, this athlete understands that the honor does not just belong to himself but to people who helps him, supports him, and has shaped him to what he is now.
Joseph Schooling is the first ever Singaporean to bag the gold medal at the Olympics in swimming. Joseph took the victory as opportunity to honor his nanny Yolanda Pascual which he calls Auntie Yolly.
“Auntie Yolly is like a second mom to me. As a kid I wasn’t the easiest one to handle. She’s the one who always takes care of me at home, cooks for me. She definitely puts extra in the extraordinary. I don’t think I could have a better second mom or nanny by my side to help me through all this.”
The same goes for Auntie Yolly who said, “When I miss him, I read our messages on the phone. He’s like my own son."
Pascual of course, didn't miss his 'son's' game and shared that she was really glad when he won.
’ve always believed in him. I was watching and shouting for him. I cannot express how happy I am. I was jumping and crying after he won. He’ll always say ‘I want to be No. 1’. I remember once we were watching Michael Phelps on TV, he told me he wanted to be there and be like him, and I knew he could do it. He has a very strong will; if he wants something, he’ll get it.” she said.
