James Spencer ready, raring to don different kind of Pilipinas

James Spencer was made to wait a little longer for the golden opportunity to represent the Philippines. The Filipino-Australian came to the Philippines last year with the primary purpose of suiting up for Gilas Youth - then still known as Batang Gilas. "I've been eyeing the (youth) team since before I was even thinking to play college basketball out here. Batang Gilas was my first connection to the Philippines," he shared. However, he fell short of being eligible for the 2018 FIBA Asia Under-18 Championship in Thailand. "I got to practice with the team a bit before they went to the qualifiers. Unfortunately, my Filipino passport, basically, wasn't in line then," he recalled. Spencer made it clear, however, that his Filipino passport was actually good to go before that regional meet, but some complications apparently arose when it was forwarded to FIBA. The 6-foot-3 promising prospect would have been a much welcome addition to a Batang Gilas side that reached the semifinals of the qualifiers. Not only is he a big-bodied guard, he is also a knockdown shooter. He showed that sort of promise in last season's UAAP where he was part of the University of the Philippines' Cinderella run to the Finals. Spencer totaled two points, 10 rebounds, and 40 minutes in nine games that gave him a taste of how it feels like to have "Pilipinas" on his jersey. Fast forward a year and now, he is all set to contribute to Gilas Youth who will wage war in the 2019 FIBA Under-19 World Cup as he has been named into the 14-man pool going to Qatar for training camp and then to Greece for the tournament proper. For that, the 19-year-old is nothing but thankful. "Once the new coaching staff was in place, coach Sandy [Arespacochaga] gave me a call and said I should try out with my team. That's what I did and I've been given an opportunity to play in Qatar to play in a few tuneup games and participate in training camp," he said. He then continued, "From there, they're gonna make a decision on who will play in Greece. I'm just glad to be part of it all and I'm just excited to play for the country." And so, Spencer is now cherishing the golden opportunity to wear "Pilipinas" in international competition - "Pilipinas" without "Unibersidad ng" accompanying it. If and when he makes the cut for the national youth team, he hopes he can be part of the process that will smooth over relations between the Philippines and Australia. After all, a Fil-Aussie is the ideal candidate to prove that Filipinos and Australians can play nice once more. "I don't think people outside the Philippines understand Filipino hoops properly. I think it's something they really have to experience firsthand to appreciate how we play," he said. He then continued, "There might be that stereotype that we're rough players who are not skillful and just wanna be rough. But really, we're just physical." Whatever it is, Spencer promises to go all out for his family who have roots in Fairview, Quezon City. "I'm just happy for all of this and thankful my family is with me for all of this," he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Lazaro, Estacio firm up friendship in Spain before going their separate ways

For the first time since they were not yet even in high school, Josh Lazaro and Penny Estacio will no longer be batchmates in San Beda High School or teammates with the Red Cubs. That is because versatile forward Lazaro and heady guard Estacio have gone their separate ways with the former moving to Ateneo de Manila High School and the latter moving to Far Eastern University-Diliman. This marks the end of four years of being batchmates in school as well as teammates in red and white. Of course, the fact that they will be on warring camps from now on is a tough transition to make for both of them. "Ako po talaga, na-sad ako kasi si Josh, siya laging kakampi ko and inaasahan ko sa San Beda. Pero siyempre, at the same time, I'm happy for him because better opportunities yun," Estacio said. Fortunately for the two, they got a golden opportunity for a beautiful goodbye when they represented the Philippines in the 2019 adidas Next Generation All-Star Game held last May in Vitoria, Spain. There, the Filipino promising prospects got to play with the other top young talent from all over the world. They also got a chance to hear from NBA veteran Ricky Rubio of the Utah Jazz. And so, even though it was their last time together before going their separate ways, the two did nothing but cherish what they had there. "Unforgettable experience po talaga siya sa amin kasi ang basketball po, continuous process siya ng learning and andami naming natutunan dun," Estacio said. Lazaro could only agree. "Ang ganda po talaga ng nangyari kasi andami talaga naming natutunan dun. Napaganda pa po lalo kasi parang ito na rin yung naging goodbye namin sa isa't-isa, yung last time na magkasama kami," he said. And for that, the good friends and longtime teammates are nothing but thankful. So much so that they hope that many others get to experience what they did in the future. "Ako po, siyempre, I'd want another opportunity like this, pero hindi lang para sa akin kundi yung iba pang (young players) in the future," Lazaro said. He then continued, "Yung ganitong experience po kasi, malaking tulong talaga para sa career." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Join the movement against marine plastic pollution!

On June 8, 2019, adidas Philippines and Parley For The Oceans celebrated World Oceans Day as it launched the new FW19 adidas x Parley collection and Run For The Oceans 2019 campaign. adidas x Parley Run for the Oceans 2019 was held at Air Juan Seaplane Terminal in Pasay City. The adidas community ran for the oceans in a 3 kilometer plog. The plogging session, which is a Scandinavian trend for picking up litter while jogging, was followed by a refreshing yoga class and informative talks on the environment by organizations The Plastic Solution and Kids For Kids. Kids for Kids— a non-profit organization solely run by kids, for kids in need— and The Plastic Solution— a movement of repurposing plastic bottles by stuffing the bottles with non-biodegradable wastes— were present to help raise awareness on the marine plastic pollution problem and the ways people can do their part in helping solve this. The Plastic Solution conducted a demonstration on eco brick making while Kids For Kids shared simple ways we can try to practice living sustainably— such as supporting local projects like Retaso PH, an initiative that uses textile waste to create an alternative to plastic bags. The event aimed to educate guests on the threat of marine plastic pollution through informative product displays and activities that would engage more people to join the movement of running for the oceans. There was an artwork installation made out of plastic bottles and guests got to explore an educational area where they learned the entire process of adidas Parley products, as well as how the Parley Ocean School Program works. adidas also introduced the new Alphabounce+ Parley which is available for Php5,300 online and in adidas stores. Alphabounce+ Parley delivers better performance for a better planet since it’s made from plastic spun into yarn and designed to give runners maximum support and comfort. adidas and Parley have intercepted vast amounts of plastic waste from marine environments and coastal communities, turning Ocean Plastic® into sportswear since 2015. “We're excited to celebrate Run For The Oceans this year since it's a great way to educate kids on the gravity of the marine plastic pollution problem and how their actions affect in creating a long-term sustainable impact,” said Jen Dacasin, adidas Brand Communication and Sports Manager. The campaign this year aims to unite more runners to lace up and Run For The Oceans in order to reach its increased goal of $1.5 million, which will be donated to the Parley Ocean School Program. To join the movement and Run For The Oceans between June 8 and 16, runners worldwide can sign up and track their runs by joining the Run For The Oceans challenge on the Runtastic app. To find out more about Run For the Oceans, visit: adidas.com.ph/runfortheoceans.
