    1. Filipino media have not noticed this feel good story. A Fil-Canadian from Calgary, Alberta has created a buzz in Sochi Russia for giving his teamate his spot in speed skating. The benefactor got 2 medals due to Mr. Junio’s team/country first mentality. He was even suggested to be the flag bearer for the closing ceremonies today. Other countries including America has noticed but unfortunately not his country of origin. He will be honored in Canada with a special medal.
