Although both of them scored zero points, they laughed it all off saying they are nevertheless proud to represent their country.

“I even laughed at myself after I did this dive,” Pahoyo wrote in a comment on the Facebook page SGAG, tagging his teammate Fabriga. “I am still proud because not all of us has the privilege to represent our own country to such a big sporting event like this.
