    hindi tayo mananalo ng medal sa paghawak ng torch! sus! Ang focus ng olympics ay mga manlalaro at hindi mga torch bearers! Ni bronze hindi mapanalunan ng pilipino! Nakakahiya!

    Marco, YOU’RE THE MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Before another day passes by, I want to thank you for all the support you have given me in our quest to have a Pinoy carry the Olympic torch once again after 4 decades of waiting. Thanks to your help, we landed in no. 2 making us one of the 100 finalists.

    You can see the tally in the attached link:

    Another link leads you to the top 100 from whom they will choose 8. 5 Filipinos have made it giving us a 5% chance. That is celebration enough. In the end, let’s just pray any 5 of us makes it.

    For me, having united all Filipinos for a positive cause is victory in itself. Carrying the torch now will just be icing on the cake.

    Thanks for the support! Mabuhay ang Pilipnas!

    Always proudly Pinoy,

    Thanks to magic89.9 for informing us about you…
    Mabuhay ka Pinoy!

  39. Reymos says:

    Good luck to Marco! This is not a criticism but an honest opinion. After reading Marco’s profile, it seems to me that he had a hard time to get tickets for his favourite games. Unfortunately, he did not mention about this rare opportunity to take part in the event and hopefully represents the country, The Philippines. Yes, every Filipino wants to be there and witness this prestigious ocassion, but being a torch bearer thru public voting is something to think about.

    To get support from our kababayans abroad is by giving us a brief description about your achievement in sports; explain to us your dreams not for personal glory but for being an ambassador of the country. Im not saying here that Marco is not qualified to participate, but to get votes, not only from Pinoys but other nationals. is to express your desire to be there and be real sportsman on behalf of the country, not just for the sake of making personal dream come true.

  40. Marilyn Tierra says:

    We, the Pinoys in Sacramento, are all out to support Marco Torres!!! We are very proud to have a Filipino carry that Olympic torch and hope to see it happen again in this lifetime.

    Go Marco! The strong Filipino community in Sacramento, California and the US are with you in your quest.


  41. Marco Torres says:

    Mga kababayan ko!

    I would like to thank you for the support. Of 349 candidates, we are now at no. 14 with about 2,500 votes. We are getting close to making the Beijing Olympics even more special to Filipinos. After all, bihira lang naman umabot sa Asia ang Olympics.

    We have until the END OF OCTOBER TO VOTE. Please forward to all your friends, relatives and countrymen.

    Kung magkakaisa ang mga Pinoy, there is no limit to what we can achieve. Maraming salamat muli. Let us keep the torch burning in our hearts!

    Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! Go for Gold!

  42. Kathy Tolosa says:

    Dear Fellow-Filipinos,

    Thank you for making a stand and exercising your rights of suffrage…Let us not let this golden opportunity pass us by…Vote Marco Torres! Our most eligible candidate to represent us in the Beijing Olympics…We can make this happen!

    A toast to Marco! We believe in you. May God’s mighty hand uphold you… Godspeed!

    Peace and unity to us all!


  43. Marco and I are trying to get more information about the Olympic torch relay that happened in Manila on Sep 3, 1964 for the Tokyo Olympics. Who were the torchbearers and organizers of that historic event in Manila? Please send me an email if you know any info about it.

    Thanks to Jamie and the admin of Mukamo for helping this campaign for Marco. Let’s continue spreading the word.
