“Finally! The Philippines gets its first Olympic medal since 1996 with Hidilyn Diaz bagging the silver medal for women's weightlifting. And she's also the first ever woman from the Philippines to win an Olympic medal! Mabuhay ka, Hidilyn!” the beauty queen wrote.

Pia, who won the Miss Universe crown after three attempts at the Binibining Pilipinas pageant, also used the hashtag #ThirdTimesaCharm, because it is Hidilyn’s third time to join the Olympics.

They also both hail from Mindanao.
