The Final Result of the Men’s Free Skating Competition in the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 revealed Filipino Michael Christian Martinez,17, maintaining his 19th place during the Men’s Short Program with a total score of 184.25.
Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu, 19, wins the Gold with 280.09 total points, followed by Patrick Chan, 23, of Canada for the Silver with 275.62 total points, and Denis Ten, 20, of Kazakhstan for the Bronze with 255.10 points.
The Pinoy skater had an early lead during the first few contestants but was outranked eventually by the older and more experienced Olympic skaters.
Michael Christian Martinez’s inclusion in the Top 24 is a momentous event, however, because he was the youngest and the lone entry from Southeast Asia who has advanced to Top 19. He made history at the Sochi Winter Olympics for his home country, the Philippines.
