Three Filipinos did great over the weekend.
On Friday, Giallo Antico, a blog run by 20-year-old Jericho Moral from Marikina City, was chosen as a Blogger Blog of Note. His site traffic should be off the charts now.
Then last Sunday, Rodel "Batang Mandaue" Mayol won the World Boxing Council light flyweight belt via a second-round technical knockout. In winning the title in Mexico, Mayol bucked his Mexican opponent's homecourt (home ring?) advantage.
Last but not the least, on Sunday educator Efren Peñaflorida was named the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year. In a TV interview, Peñaflorida disclosed that 10 percent of the $100,000 prize will be donated to a church while the remainder will go to his organization, Dynamic Teen Company.
