CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – After winning silver medal in the Tokyo Olympics, Cagayan de Oro resident boxer Carlo Paalam visited the training center where he used to train before becoming an international fighter.
Fresh from paying a courtesy call to Pres. Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang with other Tokyo Olympics medalists from Mindanao, Paalam went home and one of the first things he did was drop by at the boxing gym in Barangay Macasandig, this city, and spent a few moments with the trainees there.
