The Filipino Olympic skater set the online world abuzz after he posted a shirtless photo on Instagram. His looks as a teenage athlete didn’t quite translate to adulthood but he reversed that with his proud social media post showing off his sculpted physique.
From lanky to hunky, 20-year-old Michael is the 2015 Asian Figure Skating Trophy champion. At the age of 17, he made his mark on the Olympic history when he became the first and only Southeast Asian figure skater and contender to represent the Philippines in the 2014 Winter Olympics, a first for a tropical country.
This two-time Triglav Trophy Champion athlete stood proud when he served as the Philippine’s flag bearer at the Olympics despite limited funding and still became a three-time gold medalist from different figure skating competitions for just two consecutive years.
Now, the 20-year-old hunk is again planning to join the 2018 Winter Olympics, which will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
