Yuka Saso : Larger Than Life on an EDSA Billboard

MANDALUYONG, Philippines - Just an hour after winning the 76th US Women's Open, 19-year-old Yuka Saso's photo went up on an EDSA billboard.  The image was a congratulatory note by the owner of the large electronic billboard.

Early this year, static billboards also went up on EDSA and SLEX showing images of Saso and another Filipina player, Bianca Pagdanganan, on ads with the brand of ICTSI (International Container Terminal Services, Inc.) on it.

Such a gesture of showing Yuka Saso on the EDSA billboard is only fitting to an exceptional athlete who has done an amazing feat for the country.

It can also be noted that with Yuka Saso's US
Women's Open victory, Yuka is now ranked number 9 in the World, (a big jump from no. 40). Yuka has also surpassed one of her childhood idols, former number 1 Lydia Ko, who is now at no. 11.

Looks like no. 1 in the World Rankings will not be too far away in the near future for someone becoming larger than life at a young age of 19.
