Our athletes have been doing great at the Tokyo Summer Olympics. Weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz bagged the Philippines' first-ever gold medal, while featherweight boxer Nesthy Petecio is in the running for at least a bronze medal. Street skateboarder Margielyn Didal may have bowed out of the competition on Monday, July 26, after clinching seventh place, but the global stage will definitely never forget her face-literally! The 22-year-old from Cebu "photobombed" a number of Olympics snaps and danced her way onto international television (and live streaming).
Check out these priceless Margielyn Didal snapshots:

She may just have won Miss Congeniality.
Blessing everyone with that smile.
Didal rose to fame after competing at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, where she won a gold medal for the Philippines. In 2019, she again bagged the top spot during the 30th Southeast Asian Games. She failed to make the finals in the 2021 World Street Skateboarding Championships in Rome, but her ranking was enough to qualify her for the Olympic debut of women's skateboarding.
