This season, Nike celebrates the undeniable passion of basketball through Battle Force Manila - the ultimate expression of basketball culture within its community in Manila. With Battle Force Manila, Nike calls on Filipinos to be bold and let their passion manifest through basketball, dance, rap and art by giving them an arena where hard work, competition, creativity and self-expression can shine.  Battle Force Manila kicks off with a series of activities helmed by selected iconic personalities who have their passion and influence spread to their communities, inspiring people to let their inner potential and ambition shine through.    The line-up of these iconic personalities – Katrina Guytingco and Thirdy Ravena for basketball, Gab Valenciano and AC Lalata for dance; Loonie for rap and Kayo Casio for art - will enable participants with crafty tips and motivation through a series of videos that will be released, to refine their talent and prepare to battle. The battles will culminate in a grand finale where finalists will showcase the results of their hard work, grit and determination and battle it out to emerge as champions of basketball, dance, rap and art. This year, the brand calls for greater participation among women in all the battles with their sheer presence and growing voice of strength and empowerment in their communities. In support of this rallying cry particularly in sport, female ballers will experience training programs tailored especially for her at the Nike Hyper Court for the first time ever, alongside other activities to compete in and unleash her love for the game.   At the heart of Battle Force Manila is the iconic Air Force 1, serving as a source of inspiration with its legacy immortalized in the basketball arena. This year, Nike commissioned Blank Canvas Collective – an invitation to a curated group of creatives - Kayo Cosio, Lari Gazmen, Jade Suayan and Quiccs - to showcase their labour of love of basketball culture through reimagined expressions of the iconic sneakers. Tribute to the Nike Air Force 1 will continue throughout the month with a new unique design dropping every Friday for the entire month.  “Basketball is an integral part of Filipinos’ lives. With Battle Force Manila, Nike celebrates how the game has influenced the culture and lifestyle of athletes, artists, dancers and musicians; on and off the court,” says Jino Ferrer, Country Marketing Manager of Nike Philippines. “With the talent and influence of local iconic personalities, the reimagining of the Air Force 1 alongside our call-out for a stronger participation of women this season, we aim to invoke self-expression while pushing boundaries of ambition and creativity.”.....»»

Tigresses Jessey De Leon, Rica Rivera can stun both on, and off the court

The University of Santo Tomas has one of the most decorated women's volleyball programs in Philippine collegiate history. Aside from 15 total championships in the women's division, UST has also produced countless volleybelles who banner the fierce Tigress spirit anywhere they go. Among them are former middle blocker Jessey De Leon, and current starter Rica Jane Rivera.  Both highly-regarded in their positions as modern-day torchbearers of UST's proud tradition of success in the sport, De Leon and Rivera can also carry themselves beyond the four corners of a volleyball court. De Leon is nothing short of a renaissance woman, with her undeniable knack for multi-dimensional mastery of any craft she choses, be it in sports, or her studies. As an architecture graduate, De Leon has built herself a solid foundation when she does decide to hang up her sneakers. And there's more. She has a growing business, an online store for fans of star collegiate athletes in the Philippines that specialize in bags and other accessories. Clearly, Jessey sets herself apart from other successful student-athletes, though, is her relentless drive to keep taking on challenges and finding areas where her smarts, and passion collide to create something beautiful. Meanwhile, Rivera, a part of the UST squad who finished with a lowly 4-10 record this season, has always been a steady presence for the Tigresses. After a promising start to the season, UST's campaign took a wrong turn when Rica, and rookie of the year awardee Milena Alessandrini went down with injuries. The Tigresses struggled mightily but Rivera and Alessandrini returned just in time to help UST rack up another couple of wins to end their season 80. This season will always be a huge 'what if' for UST. But Rivera became the epitome of the Tigresses' undying spirit.  After going down and rising back up, Rivera fought hand-in-hand with her teammates as they get ready for a better outing next season.  Jessey and Rica have shown the confidence worthy of a Tigress each time they have taken the court for the black and gold. And now, it’s time to watch them exude a different kind of pride as they kill it in the fashion department, thanks to H&M Philippines. See De Leon and Rivera in their volleybelle off-duty looks. Watch them trade their casual, laidback style for something edgier and party-ready!.....»»
