  • MANILA — Filipino athlete Michael Martinez is enjoying mentoring a new generation of figure
    skaters in the country.

    In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Monday, Martinez said it is fulfilling to see his students grow
    with his guidance.

    “It feels really nice to be back and not only that, to be able to coach the next generation from figure
    skating. It’s very fulfilling and I’m very happy to do it,” he said.

    “It feels really nice kasi it’s a great feeling to see them improve not only because they can improve
    but because of me. It’s a great feeling,” he added.

    While representing the country in the next Winter Olympics is still the goal, Martinez said he also
    want to see his students represent the Philippines in the future.

    “As of now, I’m just really focused on my kids and my students. Maybe next year I’ll be able to look
    into it,” Martinez said.

    “It’s definitely a goal that I wanted to do pero para sa akin I wanna see my kids actually do the
    bigger competition. I feel like it’s their time,” he added.

    Martinez made his Winter Olympic debut in Sochi, Russia in 2014. Four years later he got a break to
    return to the Games after Sweden relinquished its Olympic spot, which was transferred to the
    Philippines, allowing Martinez to compete in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
