A Warrior’s Tears
This weekend, Myanmar crowned its first ever World Champion in history for any sport as the nation of 54 million people celebrated one of its most magical moments with joyous unity. ONE Middleweight World Champion Aung La Nsang delivered a poignant speech to his country after his stunning upset victory, “I am not strong, I am not good, I am not fast. But with you, I have the courage, I have the strength, I have the respect, I have what it takes to win a world title. Thank you, Myanmar!”
Since Day 1, our mission at ONE Championship has been to unleash real life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, dreams, inspiration and strength across all segments of society. Kids all over Myanmar now have a superhero to call their own, a role model who is humble, kind, gentle, courageous, and strong. For Aung La, he battled impossible odds with hard work and humility to achieve one of his greatest dreams in life. Thank you for inspiring all of us to dream more, do more, and be more in life, Aung La!
I don’t know what I did in my life to get so lucky, but I am so full of gratitude for the precious opportunity to live the life of my dreams and to change the world for the better. Through our real-life superheroes at ONE Championship and the beauty of storytelling, we have the awesome power to ignite hope, celebrate values, create dreams, inspire nations, and change the world.
Congratulations again to Aung La Nsang and the beautiful country of Myanmar!
