MICHAEL CHRISTIAN MARTINEZ: The first Figure Skater from Southeast Asia to qualify and compete in the Winter Olympic Games and Youth Winter Olympic Games is once again aiming for the next 2022 Winter Olympics.

His achievements made a significant impact on the sports industry and Olympic community both in his country the Philippines and abroad. 

To continue his odyssey, Michael is already taking crucial steps to gain the best chances of becoming one of the contenders at the Winter Olympics. He is currently going through intensive training in the USA under Nikolai Morozov, well-renown and one of the top international coaches in figure skating and his Team. 

No tropical nation has ever won a Winter Olympic medal, and for all intents and purposes, Michael is vying to be the first. Nonetheless, his participation in this event is more than just becoming a champion, as it is also about generating more awareness about the sport and his motherland. 

We are on his side to support him and find kind people who are interested in helping him bring more recognition not just to the athletic community, but also to the entire nation. 

Michael’s determination and dedication to the sport are truly admiring and are stronger than ever before. He never wavers despite the risks of the virus Covid19. But because of Covid19 health crisis, it has been difficult to find sponsors to help him in his journey. 

Figure skating is a very expensive sport. We are spending around 16,000 USD per month for his training (coach fees for the new program, techinal, harness, ice dance, off-ice, gym, equipments, ice time fees, doctor, chiropractor and massage therapist fees, athletic training supplies, medication, accommodation, food,supplements, transportation and more) More details on the table below . We are hoping to raise 50,000 USD to help some of his training expenses towards his journey towards the 2022 Winter Olympics. 

We are humbly approaching you to help Michael in his journey. 

You may follow his social media to get updates of his training and competitions.
