In Asia, sports equals passion, and these ten big names in the sporting world today have led their respective organizations to amazing heights this year.

The sport retains large numbers in viewership and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Countries like Singapore, Korea and Australia all follow football religiously.   #2 Aleksander Ceferin, President of UEFA Champions League Aleksander Ceferin heads the UEFA Champions League, an annual football competition, unlike FIFA which is only held every four years. The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is one of the most prestigious football tournaments in the world and is participated by top-division European football clubs. Although it does not consist of Asian teams, UEFA remains popular among the Asian people due to the popularity of football as a sport.   #3 Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship When billionaire Chatri Sityodtong conjured up the idea for ONE Championship, he envisioned the entire Asia united under a single sport. ONE Championship has achieved tremendous success since its establishment in 2011.

It also has popular variations in the FIBA Asia Championships and FIBA EuroBasket. The next tournament is scheduled for Beijing, China in 2019. Basketball’s popularity in Asia remains concentrated in the Philippines, Taiwan and China where the sport enjoys a very strong and faithful following.   #5 John Malone, Owner of Formula One Although Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One’s colorful chief executive remains at the helm of business operations, new owner American billionaire John Malone purchased the company in early 2017 and has since continued to deliver fans heart-pumping auto-racing action. Formula One, also known as Formula 1 or simply as F1, is the highest class of single-seater international auto-racing tournament in the world. Held in different variations depending on the region, the races are held regularly on an annual basis on purpose-built F1 circuits or public roads. The most popular variation in Asia is the Singapore Grand Prix which normally takes place on the Marina Bay Street Circuit. The Singapore Grand Prix was first held in 1966. It is the first of its kind in Asia.   #6 Rob Manfred, Commissioner of Major League Baseball Rob Manfred was named the 10th Commissioner in the history of Major League Baseball a wildly popular sport not just in the United States, but also in Japan, Taiwan, and China.

Sean Chambers to UST?

With the UST coaching job vacant, several names have been mentioned with regards to taking over from Boy Sablan. La Salle head coach Aldin Ayo has been rumored to transfer for a while now but it seems like he's staying at Taft. Current Globalport mentor Pido Jarencio really, really, wants to come back but it appears UST would rather not go through that road again. A left field choice is Sean Chambers. The legendary PBA import, for some reason, has been linked to the job after he resurfaced a couple of weeks ago. It seems highly unlikely but you never really know. Stranger things have happened in the UAAP and in Philippine basketball in general. The rumor has had some traction though, enough for Ginebra head coach Tim Cone, Chambers' former mentor at Alaska, to talk about it among other things last week. "I don’t know. I had a lunch with Sean the day before he left," Cone said last week during Ginebra's grand fans day after defending the PBA Governors' Cup. "I don’t really know anything about it. But he’s got a family, he’s got kids, he’s got a wife, he has a good job. And it’s hard to bring him over here and make him settle here and get his kids in school. He got young kids I think 9 and 11 years old," he added. Chambers is currently a middle school administrator back in the States in the Sacramento City Unified School District in California. The PBA legend was in town a couple of weeks back and was seen watching the UAAP and several practices of Gilas Pilipinas. Still, if and when Chambers decides on coaching basketball, here or elsewhere, Cone believes his former import will do well. "I don’t know but Sean is a great guy, a great coach and a great motivator. He teaches the game the right way," the 20-time PBA champion said. "And if anybody picks him up, it would be great. It is actually my dream to bring him over and be part of my coaching staff. If anybody picks him up, they would love Sean," Cone added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
