Thanks, DobrinFan. I had been wondering what prompted Caluza's tweet.
I think it's the right choice. MCM is the only Filipino who is a native to the country (born and raised), he is 16 so he is the future, has a 3axel, and the potential for more! There was speculation over at FSUniverse that it would not look good for the federation to have sent MCM to Nebelhorn and for him to win a spot only to give it away to a foreigner (Caluza).
