Michael Martinez opens up about past love life

It’s no surprise that everybody’s got their eyes on Olympic skater Michael Martinez, especially with looks like that and the country’s name (literally) on his back. 

Since he competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, and yes, since his shirtless pics became viral, many seem to have their hots for Michael. And this also brings in the question: Is he dating anyone?

On Michael’s interview with Inquirer published Saturday, May 6, we finally got the answer. 

When asked about his love life, Michael replied, “Wala e. Single.”

He then shared that he once tried dating while making a career out of skating, but found himself on the losing end. 

“Oo, focus. Priorities first. Before, I tried [balancing it]. Nasaktan lang ako. Kaya para sa akin, skating na lang. At si Ichiban,” Michael explained. 

Ichiban is his pet husky who he runs with everday as part of his training for an event in Anahem, California in July. 

“I train every day, around four hours on ice, and two hours of off-ice training, which includes going to the gym. I usually focus on one group of exercises per day. I also spend one hour running with my husky,” he said. 

Michael is also gunning for a spot in the 2018 Winter Olympics, which he will have to earn from the second qualifying event, the Nebelhorn Trophy in Germany in September.
