SWEAT, determination, guts. These are what gold medals are made of, according to former Olympian Dan Gable.

Charles Unabia, the right winger for the elementary football team from Don Bosco, is a boy scared of fireworks. He hates it. He hides from it and he goes pale when he sees one. But toss him a football and he will face it head on. That is guts. And that is what merited him the MOA for elementary football along with teammate Joaqin Buyco.
