“Okay na ‘ko. Manalo, matalo, okay lang ako,” said Garay ahead of the gold medal match. “But then last playing year na kasi nung mga seniors namin, so ang ginawa ko kahit natanggal na ‘yung balikat ko kanina, nilaban ko na lang din.

“Kaya kahit sabihin na nating five-percent chance ‘yung winning rate ko, ‘yun na lang ‘yung ginawa kong puhunan para ‘di ko pagdudahan ‘yung sarili ko.”
