Michael Martinez, Philippines Ice Skater, makes Winter Olympics History...

Ice-skating in Manila!

Michael Christian Martinez, a 17-year-old Filipino who trains in Los Angeles and has a Russian coach is the Philippines lone representative at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

He is making his Olympic debut and becoming the first-ever figure skater to represent any Southeast Asian country.

We all wish Michael lots of luck in the competition, and it might seem odd that a Filipino enjoys ice-skating in the first place, but did you know there's a superb public ice-skating rink in the Mall of Asia, Manila, where people can get their skates on at the same time as doing their shopping!
