Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 18) — The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPOST) launched commemorative stamps paying tribute to weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz, who won the country's first Olympic gold medal.

The stamps present snapshots of Diaz's winning moment at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

"The images in stamps offer a fresh and engaging story of Philippine history, culture and identity," Postmaster General Norman Fulgencio said in a statement on Saturday.

PHLPOST also released stamps featuring Diaz's fellow Olympic medalists Carlo Paalam, Nesthy Petecio, and Eumir Marcial.

The post office said the set is the second installment to its "Covid-19 Heroes stamps" series - the first being the commemorative stamps for pandemic frontliners published last year.

PHLPOST said it will also launch "Keep the Faith, Be a Hero Covid-19 Vaccinated" stamps to promote vaccination.
