As Filipino, I am very proud to know that there are athletes in the US team at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Amanda Evora of the figure skating team and J.R. Celski of short track speed skating are Filipino-Americans. Evora's parents are both Filipinos while Celski's father is an American and his mother is Filipina. Evora and her partner Ladwig did not bag a medal but they finished at the top 10. Celski on the other hand were able to bagged the bronze medal for the 1500 meter short track speed skating. It was a great comeback for JR Celski getting an Olympic medal after having an accident five months ago. Both said they're proud to be Filipino as well. Both of them gave pride to Philippines and I am pretty sure Filipinos all over the world are also proud of them for their accomplishment.
