WWE star Xavier Woods had an eventful trip to Manila

MANILA, Philippines – A new day has come to Manila! 5-time WWE Tag Team Champion, Xavier Woods, of The New Day, has finally made his long awaited return to the Philippines! Arriving shortly after sunrise, Woods began his trip with a short Kalesa (horse-drawn carriage) ride through the beautiful Manila Bay. Always up for an adventure, Woods sampled Filipino street food: deep-fried calamares and orange soda, served in a clear plastic bag.      Xavier Woods began his afternoon with a special 5X5 basketball game that featured athletes from Special Olympics Philippines. The game was supervised by members of Alab Pilipinas, champions from the ASEAN Basketball League. After a showcase of drills, everyone took to the court for a fun, tag-based game of 5X5 basketball. After the event, Xavier presented the athletes from Alab Pilipinas and Special Olympics Philippines with gifts from World Wrestling Entertainment.     “It’s really fun. It’s always a good time to work with Special Olympics,” shares Xavier Woods. “Being a WWE superstar is more than just being in the ring- it’s about giving back to the communities we perform for.”   Xavier Woods’ return to Manila was marked before a passionate crowd at the SM Mall of Asia. Woods first came to Manila in 2016 where he defended the WWE Tag Team Championship in a triple threat match with teammates, Kofi Kingston and Big E.     At the event, the WWE Universe was treated to a number of surprises. Three lucky fans were given the chance to come on stage and recreate Woods’ entrance walk, complete with music and video. Once on stage, he fielded a series of questions before experiencing a number of uniquely Filipino activities. This began with Woods eating a whole Balut (hard-boiled duck embryo). “I feel the power!”, Woods exclaimed upon finishing it.     Driven by the power from Balut, Woods danced the ‘Tinikling’. The traditional Filipino folk dance involves two dancers rhythmically skipping between two moving bamboo poles. After experiencing two cultural hallmarks, Woods sat down and met the WWE Universe in the Philippines. He then finished his night at Playbook Café for a mini tournament with fans......»»

DOC VOLLEYBALL: A Dilemma on Loop?

Flashback to March 2017, the whole volleyball community was abuzz about a newly formed national team set to compete in the Southeast Asian Games of that year as tryouts were held, but certain players, particularly from the Ateneo de Manila University, were allegedly not invited. An apology was then issued and special tryouts were held to accommodate the aforementioned athletes. Flashback to 2015, with a newly formed organization in Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) taking the reins from the Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) as the volleyball authority in the country, the future looked bright as for the first time in recent history, both the men’s and women’s teams were being sent to the Singapore SEA Games as representation of the sport’s resurgence. As with any newly formed roster, the composition was mired in controversy especially with the men’s team, which was composed of predominantly of young players. Flashback to 2014, with the power struggle between the aforementioned LVPI and PVF, the latter formed the infamous Amihan and Bagwis squads as the women’s and men’s national teams, respectively. Backed by then sponsor PLDT, the rosters boasted of the some of the country’s best talents from both divisions with the likes of Alyssa Valdez, Mark Espejo, Ara Galang, Tatan Pantone, Ran Ran Abdilla and Mark Alfafara to name a few. Both teams never saw the light of day outside the country as the PVF eventually lost its accreditation leading to the teams’ eventual disbandment. And the theme went on as the previous years are revisited. Fast forward to present time, 2018, and once again the volley community is abuzz with the formation of yet again a new national team with a familiar scenario in which local favorites did not make the cut. With the volleyball scene at an all time high in local following, it is quite inevitable for varying opinions on who should have been included in the line-up given the wide pool of talents especially in the women’s division. Coupled with a sudden change in coaching staff, the new roster is once again under scrutiny given the process the team as a whole was structured from the beginning. Another New Beginning Without taking anything from the players and coaches of the new women’s national team, the composition is relatively deserving of the spots for the roster. While expected shoe-ins who have performed tremendously well in the local leagues like Myla Pablo, Maika Ortiz, and Tatan Pantone were not afforded a slot in the team, the new line-up is still pretty much capable of representing the country. Middles – Aby Marano is the best fit amongst the middles who made the final cut. With exceptional timing and good lateral movement, Marano is expected to perform in the position well offensively and defensively despite the lack of height for a middle blocker internationally. Her agility and aggressiveness with her net play more than justifies her inclusion and assignment as the team captain. Her DLSU successor Majoy Baron would add much needed support as the second middle as she has proven to have the power and timing of Aby though much work can still be done for her agility in the net. Baron’s aggressive floaters will also be of much benefit on the service line. Lastly, Mika Reyes would provide the height should the need arise especially against foreign teams with bigger size. Left Wing – Alyssa Valdez’ inclusion as left wing hitter is of no question as she continues to prove that she is one of the best open hitters in the local scene. Perhaps working more on her bulk and power is something the coaching staff must consider to ensure that she can carry over her local performance to the international scene. Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Ces Molina likewise have proven themselves much capable of being offensive threats from the left and their decent size will be of much benefit in blocking against slides and opposite attacks from foreign counterparts. It would be beneficial as well if Santiago-Manabat develops mastery of passing and if Molina becomes a significant threat with the pipe in order for both athletes to really excel in the position. Although Cha Cruz is not much of a power hitter as compared to the aforementioned left hitters, she would serve a special position as the service and defense specialist for the team. If in scenarios in which she will serve in for a middle, her floor defense is of much benefit in Zone 5 and with her background as a former setter, she is still capable of setting up a decent play should the setter get the first contact. Right Wing – Though much of her collegiate season has been utilized hitting from the middle, Jaja Santiago is undeniably more fit for the opposite position. Despite her height and power, which could be considered an automatic criteria for the middle, Santiago has much work to be done with lateral motion which is also a crucial component for middle hitters. With her vertical reach and power, she is better off racking up points from the right wing and right back row as the main offensive option for the team. Likewise, Kim Dy is also a shoo-in for the opposite position as evidenced by her consistency in scoring and blocking from the right. With Kim Fajardo calling the plays, Kim Dy would be beneficial in running faster or creative plays should the need arise. Setters – The selection of Fajardo and Jia Morado is not to be questioned as both have proven and continue to prove that they are top-notch setters in the country. Both setters are a shoo-in for the national team as both are equal in consistency with Fajardo showing mastery in working the middles and Morado displaying her skill in making the wings work for her. Not much can be argued really about the selection of the two athletes. A reserve setter in Rhea Dimaculangan would be also beneficial as she has the consistency and creativity as the aforementioned setters as well as the height, which would be important in blocking. Libero – Currently hailed as one of Southeast Asia’s finest, Dawn Macandili is undeniably a good choice for the main libero position. With her agility and speed to pop up digs and impossible saves, her presence on the floor is highly beneficial for the team on transition defense. On the other hand, her counterpart Denise Lazaro has proven to be highly consistent from the receiving end of services making her inclusion as part of the regular roster and not just a reserve undeniably essential. With Lazaro setting up the passing formation and Macandili guarding on transition, their combined specialized efforts will ensure the first step in letting the setters run the play for the team. A Shift in View Given the fact that the talent pool in the women’s division is deep, player selection will always be put on debate as not all favored athletes will be included. Perhaps a good way of viewing the matter is that given the yet again short preparation time for the next international tournament, the coaching staff would best select players who they have already established a good working relationship for a more seamless adaptation of a new system. Rather than put into scrutiny the individual players, handpicked or not, the focus should be put on the system as a whole and how it can be further developed for the improvement of the sport. Yet again, the 2018 roster is proving to be another promising one as it has been almost every year when a new line-up is formed. More than bringing back pride to the country internationally in the tournaments immediately at hand, the bigger challenge for the national team is to prove itself not as yet another band aid solution in the attempt to have a continuous program. How the 2018 Team will prove itself different from its predecessors in past Asian/SEA Games would be the more important matter that should be put under the lens. With the sport currently a major source of livelihood for many athletes, the players are no longer the ones getting the short end of the stick but rather volleyball and its development as a whole should the loop continues. The country has much individual talent deserving of a spot in the team, but for as long as vested interests continue to rear their head in the Philippine Volleyball System, the level of the sport will continue to fall short in justifying its current local popularity.    .....»»

UAAP Finals: Too short, weak, slow Anton Asistio graduates as a champion

Anton Asistio was never a star Ateneo Blue Eagle. In his four years playing for the Ateneo de Manila University, he was never the type to rack up big shots, which can send the whole blue-and-white crowd to celebration. But in Asistio's last game as a Blue Eagle in UAAP Season 81, where they sealed back-to-back champion status against the University of the Philippines, he experienced what it was like to be given such immense attention. Ateneo supporters in the Araneta Coliseum chanted "A-sis-tio! A-sis-tio!" in honor of the graduating point guard. Ateneo crowd chanting "Asistio! Asistio!" #UAAPFinals pic.twitter.com/ZErL4wicEh — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) December 5, 2018 Anton Asistio graduates as a champion. #UAAPFinals pic.twitter.com/JJPydFVaFb — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) December 5, 2018 "Surreal. I was never the main guy pero nagkataon I'm the only one graduating so it was a wonderful experience. Parang sobrang naging emotional ako noon," he said. He may be basking in the glory of graduating as a champion in Season 81, but the path leading up to this beautiful exit was not pretty for the 5-foot-8 point guard. Moments after the championship festivities, he reflected about his very far from perfect UAAP career. "When I was first year and second year, I made it to the line-up and that was my dream ever since I was a kid. Pero it wasn't how I saw myself because I wasn't really playing," said one of Ateneo's homegrown talents who started playing as early as grade school. Due to being small and not much of a great ball handler, Asistio was a benchwarmer in his first two years. It became worse when he was relegated to Team B the next year. "And then my third year, I was sent down to Team B, but instead of seeing it as a downgrade, I looked at it as an opportunity, an opportunity to get better, kasi the fact that they sent me down means na may kulang pa ako as a player," he said. Come his fourth chance to play, the arrival of a foreigner Tab Baldwin as their new head coach, who had zero prejudices about the players, signalled new beginnings for Asistio. "Then lucky enough, in my fourth year a new head coach was appointed, si Coach Tab. And I knew it was another chance, so it was a clean slate for everyone. He's a foreigner, so he didn't really know anyone," he narrated. Baldwin took a chance on him and he delivered. "'He's too short, he's too weak, he's too slow, and he can't handle the ball.' And this is all true, and he knows it. And so at least I had to give him a fair shot and tell him those things. And so what did we end up with? We ended up with a guy who got in the weight room, changed his body, changed his mentality, continued to be a great shooter, became very dependable handling the ball, and also is one of our more dependable defensive players," shared the Ateneo mentor. "So of course, he's sitting here today as a graduating senior with all the laurels that he deserves because he worked his tail off to get them," credited Baldwin. Now, the short, weak, and slow point guard that hardly made a dent in Ateneo's past campaigns closed his UAAP career as a champion. From being a liability, he has turned himself into an asset defensively and most especially, offensively. In his last season, he posted averages of 7.6 points, 1.8 three pointers a game on a 43-percent shooting clip beyond the arc. This makes him the third best scorer of Ateneo this season. Interestingly, his last championship was won against his former coach who relegated him to the Team B, Bo Perasol. "Medyo nakakatawa lang na si Coach Bo pa nakalaban ko. Actually, thankful ako kay Coach Bo kasi kung hindi dahil sa kanya hindi ako magpepersevere. Naging motivation ko rin yun. I'm the kind of guy who when I'm going after something, I use everything that I can as motivation and I guess that is just one of them," he said.  Looking forward, Asistio eyes a spot in the PBA D-League or the MPBL to continue his basketball career. On top of that, he plans to also finish his Masters Degree in Communication in Ateneo. Five years ago, Asistio couldn’t even get his own minutes, then his own spot in the roster. But look at him now, he was given a grand exit of a two-time UAAP champion. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

June Mar on crucial missed free throws: 'Mintis lang talaga'

MANILA, Philippines --- After Jayson Castro beat the shot clock for an incredible three-pointer giving Gilas Pilipinas a 68-67 lead, the Blur found June Mar Fajardo down low for a possible score and a three-point advantage. Fajardo tried to dunk it but he missed. He was fouled though and June Mar had the chance to score the two points from the free throw line. Up one with 2:20 left in the game, the reigning four-time PBA MVP missed both. While Fajardo would redeem himself a couple of plays later, giving the Philippines its last lead of the game, 70-69, in the final minute, those two missed free throws would prove to be costly for Gilas Pilipinas and Iran would eventually go on to win with a final 9-0 blast. "Wala, nag-mintis lang talaga," Fajardo said when asked the free throws. "Nakaka-frustrate." Gilas Pilipinas has now lost back-to-back home games and each time, the national team had the chance to win. The Philippines just failed to execute down the stretch. "Nakakapanghinayang," Fajardo said. "Nandun na tayo, may chance tayo manalo. Na-shoot lang din nila yung mga crucial shots nila," he added. Gilas Pilipinas is now in danger of missing the FIBA World Cup. But as the national team deals with this disappointing loss, June Mar says all is not lost just yet. "Kailangan ng time, kasi galing kami sa iba-ibang sistema. Yun lang sinasabi ni coach, kailangan talaga mag-adapt agad kasi short period lang yung preparation. Nakakalungkot pero mananalo tayo as a team, matatalo tayo as a team," he said. "Kailangan matuto tayo sa game na ito," June Mar added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP Finals: Kouame insists contact with Akhuetie was unintentional

Ateneo de Manila University's Ange Kouame extended his apologies to Bright Akhuetie after the former's contact with the latter caused a hyperextended left knee in the Game 1 of the UAAP Season 81 Finals. UP's Akhuetie fell on one end of the floor after Kouame's hit with 6:31 left in the third quarter. Akhuetie was visibly angry as he kept hitting the floor while curling up in pain. Medical professionals from both teams rushed to Akhuetie's side to give him medical attention. He was eventually brought to the dugout for further assessment. Moments after the match that saw Ateneo draw first blood in the best-of-three series, 88-79, Kouame shared his side of the story. "That wasn't intentional. People can get mad 'cause yeah, but it wasn't intentional. I wanted to go up but he was in my way. I didn't know what really happened. I'm really sorry about that. It's the game of basketball, anything can happen. I'm really sorry about that if that offended people," said the Ivorian rookie. After icing the affected area, Akhuetie eventually returned to the match with seven minutes left in the final frame. As usual, Kouame was the one guarding him and during their match-up, Kouame said that he said sorry to his fellow big man. "I apologized to him but he didn't want to understand. I get it, I get his irritation, but it's still basketball. I can't complain about it," Kouame added. Akhuetie was seen dismissing Kouame during the fourth quarter, but after the final buzzer, both players still shook hands. "I expect a lot of tough match-ups especially in the next game. I hope I'm gonna be ready for that," said the Rookie-of-the-Year frontrunner. Due to the sequence that saw a Fighting Maroon hurt, Kouame was at the receiving end of boos from the UP side of the crowd inside the Mall of Asia Arena. Every time he went to the free throw line, UP fans were in unison in booing him. "It had an effect on me. We're all players, but I still had to stay focused on the game. I mean, it has an impact on me, especially right now. I really feel that. I never thought it's gonna happen but this has happened and I have to accept that and live with that cause it's my rookie year," he said. Kouame and the rest of the Blue Eagles will seek for win number two on Wednesday, December 5 to seal their 10th title in the UAAP. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

ONE Championship: A win away from a second title run, greatness once again within reach for Eduard Folayang

Eduard Folayang’s mixed martial arts career can best be described as ‘up-and-down.’ Throughout his eleven year career as a professional MMA fighter, Folayang has reached the highest of highs and has fallen to the lowest of lows, and his current run in ONE Championship is no different. In 2016, following a run that saw him go 6-3 in the promotion, Folayang reached pinnacle of his career after dethroning Japanese MMA legend Shinya Aoki to become the ONE Lightweight World Champion. Another high in the career of the Baguio City native, who many considered to be the face of Philippine MMA at that point. Then, a year later, as the trend in his career goes, Folayang was knocked off from his spot at the top and was sent crashing down courtesy of a right hand from Martin Nguyen. Just like that, Folayang was again in a valley. The 35-year old is no stranger to adversity. He was able to rise back up in 2016, and now, he’s done just that again. A little over a year after losing the belt to Nguyen in Manila, Folayang gets a shot at history, but more importantly, he gets a shot at redemption. At ONE: Conquest of Champions in Manila, Folayang has the opportunity to become a two-time world champion when he meets Singapore’s Amir Khan for the vacant ONE Lightweight World Champion. If Folayang pull it off, he becomes the first two-time ONE Lightweight World Champion in the promotion’s history. If Folayang pulls it off, he recaptures the crown in the very same arena that he lost it in, just twelve months prior. “Siyempre masayang-masaya ako, kasi it took me one year ulit para maka-balik sa title picture, and pinag-hirapan naman natin,” Folayang told ABS-CBN Sports. “We faced two undefeated Russians and naging dominant naman yung performance natin, and for sure, napaka-exciting yung magiging laban na ito, especially since tinalo ni Amir Khan yung teammate natin na si Honorio Banario, so it will be a good fight for both of us.” Folayang knows all too well how his career has gone, and the former Wushu standout says that in order to be able to keep moving forward, one must not keep himself in the past. Whether wins or losses, “Landslide” says that he does not dwell on them too much. “Hindi tayo nagde-dwell sa past, kasi kung magde-dwell ako sa mga past victories tsaka mga defeat, parang hindi ako magmo-move on.” “ Kaya dun natin na-aappreciate ang martial arts, it’s really a journey kung saan sasabihin natin na tapos na tayo or na-achieve na natin yung highest na standard kasi in some ways, we will win some and some ways we will lose, pero  yung napaka-ganda doon ay kapag natatalo tayo, mayroon at mayroon tayong chance para ayusin yung areas na nagkamali tayo at magkaroon ng chance para manalo ulit and as much as possible maibalik natin yung nawala sa atin,” he continued. As far as second chances go, Folayang has had his fair share. Now, he gets another chance at being the top lightweight in the promotion, and he believes it’s all because he never quit, even after all the adversity he has faced in his career. “Yun yung pinaka-masaya dito sa pagiging isang martial artist, we are given a second chance as long as we are breathing and as long as we never give up.” Folayang’s road back to the championship picture took him a little over 365 days. In that period, Folayang proved that he was still a top-tier lightweight after defeating a pair of undefeated Russian grapplers in Kharun Atlangeriev and Aziz Pahrudinov. When Martin Nguyen vacated the belt back in September, immediately, Folayang was in the front of the line in terms of contenders. In that 12-month period, Folayang admits that it wasn’t the easiest. Having to deal with such a loss and then having to work your way back isn’t a walk in the park. But the former champion believes that it was necessary for him to go through that in order to evolve even more. “Yung journey, every day talaga, kailangan mo din mag-struggle, mag-struggle na kung saan you will always aim to improve, you will always aim to learn kung ano yung strengths and weaknesses ng kalaban mo until you will go on that day na parang mag-eexam ka ulit and you will see na if you have improved after a year or not,” he shared. 378 days removed from his title loss, Folayang gets to test himself again, and if he passes, he becomes the top dog in the lightweight division. “Yung pinaka-test ko ulit after losing that belt is this coming November 23, and I’m excited going into that battle again. Sana maging two-time world champion.” Very rarely do fighters go undefeated in their professional careers, and they say that the true test of a champion is how he or she bounces back from adversity or defeat. Time and time again, Folayang has managed to bounce back. When people thought that he would never reach the top, he proved them wrong by becoming a champion. When people thought that he was done, he again proved them wrong by being where he is now. It’s through these kinds of struggles, Folayang says, that one learns about himself. It’s this kind of pressure that molds one to become a champion. “I believe na nakakatulong din [yung mga setbacks], although as much as possible din, ayaw natin ng ganun,” he said. “Pero siguro sa buhay hindi mo talaga masasabing upward palagi yung improvement, minsan talaga madudulas ka para makita mo yung space kung saan mag-iimprove ka pa, and makikita din talaga natin na everyone is improving, hindi lang tayo yung nag-iimprove tapos tapos na, no. “Everybody is chasing greatness, and kapag nagkamali tayo, maabutan tayo, pero we need to come up stronger ulit,” he added. At ONE: Conquest of Champions, Folayang once again finds himself one win away from a second run as the ONE Lightweight World Champion. Once again, greatness is within reach for Eduard Folayang.   Eduard Folayang meets Amir Khan for the vacant ONE Lightweight World Championship at ONE: Conquest of Champions this Friday, November 23rd at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila. Catch the action LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23 beginning at 8:30 PM! .....»»
