WINNERS and LOSERS: Sportsmen in 2019 mid-term elections

Athletes and sports personalities tried their luck in the 2019 mid-term elections. Some were able to extend their victorious run in their respective sports to the political arena. Some were not as lucky. Former De La Salle Green Archer Francis Zamora was the biggest winner after winning the mayoral poll in San Juan, ending the nearly 50-year grip of the Ejercito Estrada clan in the city. Zamora was proclaimed winner Monday night after garnering 35,060 votes, building a lead of 10,247 votes against rival Janella Ejercito Estrada (24,813). Another cager in former PBA player Paul Artadi won as councilor in San Juan’s first district. Former Jose Rizal University basketball coach Vergel Meneses won as mayor of Bulakan in Bulacan while 2005 Southeast Asian Games fencing gold medalist Richard Gomez was elected for another term as mayor of Ormoc, Leyte unopposed. Matthew Manotoc, a player agent and son of golfer Tommy Manotoc, ran unopposed and was proclaimed as new Ilocos Norte governor.            Also winning seats in their city councils were Dondon Hontiveros (2nd district, Cebu), Ato Agustin (San Fernando, Pampanga), UAAP executive director Rebo Saguisag (1st district, Makati), SWU coach Yayoy Alcoseba (Cebu), Adamson coach Franz Pumaren (third district of Quezon City),  Yoyong Martirez (second district of Pasig City), Jam Alfad (Jolo, Sulu), former Coca-Cola head coach Binky Favis (second district of Paranaque), Marikina Shoemakers head coach Elvis Tolentino (second district of Marikina), Jack Santiago of Adamson (1st district, Navotas), Perpetual Help’s GJ Ylagan (Gumaca, Quezon) and racer Tyson Sy (2nd district, Valenzuela). Meanwhile, former University of the Philippines volleybelle Pia Cayetano and Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas chairman Sonny Angara are currently in the top 10 in the senatorial race. Boxing trainer and Manny Pacquiao’s boxing buddy Buboy Fernandez maintains his lead in the vice-mayor race in Polangui, Albay while congressmen Mikee Romero and Eric are heading for a term extension with 1Pacman on track to winning them seats.     Just like in sports, some were not as lucky. Gilas Pilipinas head coach Yeng Guiao, also the NLEX mentor, lost to incumbent congressman Jon Lazatin in the first district of Pampanga. Olympian Monsour del Rosario bowed down to incumbent Makati vice mayor Monique Lagdameo, Don Allado failed to get a seat in San Juan City council while Peter Aguilar, former Ginebra player and father of current Gin Kings player and national team member Japeth, failed to get a seat as vice mayor of Sasmuan, Pampanga.    .....»»

For Love of Game: Valdez takes lower paycheck to play in Thailand

Local volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez will be receiving less than what a club in the Philippines can offer her as salary playing for 3BB Nakornnont but the experience of playing and carrying the country’s pride in the Thai League is more than enough compensation. The two-time UAAP champion is more focused on learning from her stint and going back to spread the knowledge and experience she gained at home. “I think this is really big (playing abroad). It’s well known na here sa Philippines yung volley. I think we need to level up and I think one way of getting it is for players going to different countries to play and go back here and share everything,” said the 23-year-old open hitter in an earlier interview. “’Yun naman din ang goal and para maging inspiration din sa mga bata na aspiring volleyball players.”    The former Ateneo de Manila Queen Eagle was formally welcomed by the Thai squad by presenting her the team’s jersey where she will wear the no. 9 uniform – the same jersey number she wore while playing and winning three titles for University of Sto. Tomas high school in the UAAP. As for the specifics of her contract, a source from Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc., which processed her release paper to play abroad, Valdez will earn 30,000 Baht (P42,000) as monthly salary while playing for the club in the Thai League and the Thai-Denmark Super League.                 Valdez’s monthly paycheck will be way below what she had earned with her last local team Bureau of Customs during the V-League Reinforced Conference few months back. The three-time UAAP Most Valuable Player reportedly received a six-digit contract from the Transformers for the two-month tournament. Valdez flew to Thailand last Sunday and will stay there until early April. She’ll debut for 3BB Nakornnont on January 29 against King-Bangkok. Valdez also vowed to return next month to join either the Cebu or Davao tryouts for the national team that will see action in the 29th Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games.     The local volleyball phenom was a part of the national squad during the Singapore edition of the biennial meet where she was also chosen as Team Philippines flag-bearer during the traditional parade of nations.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles     .....»»

Valdez spreads wings, begins Thailand journey

Alyssa Valdez’s international club league career started Sunday when the Filipina volleyball superstar flew to Thailand to join 3BB Nakornnont.   The former UAAP three-time Most Valuable Player will start training with the club as 3BB Nakornnont prepares for the second round of the Thai League. Valdez will debut for 3BB on January 29 against King-Bangkok. “Siguro hindi ko rin ma-explain kung gaano ako ka-excited at kung gaano ako kinakabahan kasi it’s a different challenge,” said the 23-year-old Valdez in an interview with ABS-CBN Sports. “Kasi mag-isa lang ako, 'yung lahat ng mga external factors nandoon na rin.” Valdez, who was given the green light by the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. to play abroad Saturday, will join her former Bureau of Customs teammates Kanjana Kuthaisong and Nattanicha Jaisaen. “At least naging teammates ko naman ang few players doon,’ she said. Valdez will stay in Thailand until early April as the team will also play in the Thai-Denmark Suepr League. But what excites Valdez, who bannered the national women’s volleyball team in its return to the Southeast Asian Games two years ago in Singapore, the most is the chance to go up against Thai superstar and Southeast Asia’s most popular player Pleumjit Thinkaow.   “Di ko ba nakakalaban sina Pleumjit and 'yung mga senior (players ng mga) teams,” said the Team Philippines flag-bearer during the 2015 SEA Games. “Noong SEA Games naman kasi last time hindi natin sila ka-bracket. I’m really excited.” “I’m really looking forward na makalaban talaga sila o makaharapan lang sila di ba?” she added. “Iba 'yung excitement kasi makakalaban mo ‘yung mga experienced teams tapos ‘yung team namin sobrang bata rin. Feeling ko matututo ako sa mga kids at the same time sa mga veteran ng Thailand also para ma-help pa kung ano 'yung mga kailangan kong i-improve as a player and as an individual also.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles       .....»»
