SEA GAMES: The silver that glittered like gold

When the editorial staff of ABS-CBN Sports was tasked to come up with our most memorable coverage, it didn’t take long for this writer to respond. The Philippine men’s volleyball team’s Southeast Asian Games semifinal match was the first thing that came to mind. Pesonally, that game against the highly-fancied Thailand squad topped all the countless volleyball matches that I’ve covered in my career. I’m at a loss for words on how to describe the emotions I felt that chilly night of December 8, 2019. Around 6,700 fans filled the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City not knowing that what they were about to witness was something historic. A magical night that would take away the frustrations they felt the day before when the more popular women’s team finished the preliminary round winless. For us sportswriters covering that assignment, we knew the Filipinos were up for a tough ride. Thailand ruled the last four editions of the event. On the other hand, the Philippines’ last significant outing in the biennial meet was a bronze medal finish back in 1991 – or when the current national team’s oldest member, setter Jessie Lopez was just five-years old.      Did we doubt our own team? Let’s just say we prayed to the high heavens to give us something positive to write about. But don’t get us wrong. Those who followed the formation and preparation of the squad knew it would yield results come the SEA Games. After all, in all three batches of the Nationals that participated in the regional sports meet since 2015, this particular team had the longest time to prepare – around eight months to be exact. The team’s composition itself looked really promising. For the first time, two of country’s best hitters in Marck Espejo and Bryan Bagunas, who both have experience playing in the Japan V. League,  donned the tricolors together. Espejo returned after skipping the 2017 edition so did his teammates in the 2015 squad Rex Intal and setter Ish Polvorosa. Bagunas was on his second tour of duty along with team captain John Vic De Guzman, Mark Alfafara, RanRan Abdilla and libero Jack Kalingking. Head coach Dante Alinsunurin, who was appointed to handle the team after Oliver Almadro and Sammy Acaylar in 2015 and 2017, respectively, tapped an old hand in Lopez and injected young bloods in playmaker Owa Retamar, Jau Umandal, Kim Malabunga, Ricky Marcos and Francis Saura. As part of their buildup the Nationals joined the Thailand Open Sealect Tuna Championship July last year.          The Filipinos achieved a great feat when they won bronze. Fans were able to witness the Nationals’ campaign via YouTube streaming while we volleyball writers, got to file our full stories through the help of De Guzman and Bagunas (God bless their beautiful hearts) who supplied us with game stats and granted postgame interviews. It’s just a shame I never got to cover the team’s training in Japan when the Nationals’ preparation went on full throttle. (Note: A little confusion in the training camp coverage assignments had me flying to Japan with the women’s squad and Lance Agcaoili of Spin.ph joining the men’s team. But it was a great experience, nonetheless, and I’m grateful for Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. for the opportunity.)     I was as confused as the other sportswriters present during the draw for the group stage a couple of months before the SEA Games when Alinsunurin chose to join the four-team bracket with Indonesia, Vietnam and Cambodia. Those three teams are considered contenders every SEA Games edition. And earning a semifinal spot would be harder compared to the other group composed of Thailand, Myanmar and Singapore. Fortunately, the gamble was worth it. Espejo and Bagunas were superb offensively, Malabunga and Retamar made their presence felt and the Nationals’ blocking shocked Cambodia and Vietnam as the Filipinos swept them both to secure a semis seat.   Then came the steamrolling Indonesians. Honestly, I thought the Nationals would sweep their way to the group’s top seeding. That way the PHI’s would've avoided a semis clash with Thailand. Forced to take on the defending champions, the Filipinos found themselves down in the first set. They got back in the second frame before yielding the third. And when the Thais came to match point, 24-21, in the fourth we all thought it was over. Fans were slowly emptying the bleachers not wanting to see the impending defeat. I was already waiting for the final score. Ready break the result. Then a miracle happened. The Nationals nibbled on the Thais' lead to force a deuce. After another deadlock, the Filipinos stole the set. The fifth frame was classic story of ‘who wants it more will win.’ An extended set made it even more dramatic. I vividly remember that sequence when Bagunas hammered the game-clinching kill off a lob from Lopez. After that all that I can recall was me pumping my fist up in the air and slapping the hardest high-fives I ever did with those inside the press room while howling like a madman.    The national team assured itself of a silver after 42 years. A silver after four freaking decades. They did it. Of course, the Indonesians bullied their way to winning the gold medal in a sweep of the inexperienced Filipinos. But who cares, the host team exceeded its podium expectations. That silver that glittered like gold made that coverage truly memorable. But it never crossed my mind that it would be the last important volleyball event that I will get to report. (Note: It would’ve been the UAAP if not for the health crisis that put all sporting events to a halt. Sad.) And that’s why I ended up writing these last few paragraphs. A farewell from this section. From my first article for this website back on December 1, 2014 – a post-mortem of Petron’s breakthrough title in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix – to my last published story, these were all written with only one thing in mind: in the service of the Filipino sports fan worldwide. Our run may have not been perfect, of course, we had our flaws. We had our fair share of criticisms from fans, athletes, sports personalities and sometimes even from our partner leagues and properties. We accepted our shortcomings. We tried to be better. But we are proud of what we did. We take pride with how we delivered sports stories through various digital executions that showcased sports beyond the confines of competition. On midnight of September 1 while most of you lay sound asleep, deep in slumber, hopefully, having a good dream and hours away from waking up looking forward to a better day, this website will be snapped out of existence.  More than half a decade of sharing stories to the Filipino sports fan will be seeing its last presence online on Monday – a holiday to celebrate the nation’s heroes. This website will then hear its final buzzer, its final whistle. Thousands of articles – written with passion, dedication and love – will be taken down as this website goes offline together with majority of ABS-CBN Sports’ social media accounts. But soon, hopefully, it will once again see the light of day.    We do hope that you will remember us, for we will remember all of you who made us your Kapamilya.   -- 30 --   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles Mark Escarlote has served as a sub-section editor for ABS-CBN Sports' website since 2014.

Host Philippines receives favorable draw in 2020 Badminton Asia Manila Team Championships

The fate of the nations competing in the 2020 Badminton Asia Manila Team Championships has been known, Wednesday at the Century Park Hotel. Host Philippines, seeded ninth in the continental meet that will take place from February 11-16 at the historic Rizal Memorial Coliseum, received a somewhat favorable draw. The Philippine Men's National Badminton Team, consisting of Joper Escueta, Ariel Magnaye, Alvin Morada, Solomon Padiz Jr., Paul John Pantig, Ros Pedrosa, Arthur Salvado, and Lanz Zafra, are slotted in Group A together with top-seed Indonesia and fifth-ranked India. On the other hand, the women's team of Nicole Albo, Sarah Barredo, Mika De Guzman, Geva De Vera, Ysay Leonardo, Chanelle Lunod, Bianca Carlos, and Thea Pomar will figure in Group C with fellow Southeast Asian squads Thailand and Indonesia. "We need to prepare since we fell short in the SEA Games. We need to double time, triple time with our effort," said women's team head coach Ian Mendez. "We are playing with the best in the world. We fell short during the SEA Games but, hopefully, we will give them a good fight this time," added men's team head coach Ronald Magnaye. Men's runner-up in 2018 China headlines Group B and will be joined by Thailand and Hong Kong while Group C will consist of Chinese-Taipei, Malaysia, and Singapore. Powerhouse Japan, who will be without world no. 1 Kento Momota as he is still recovering from injuries he sustained from a vehicular accident late last year, leads Group D together with Korea and Kazakhstan. Defending women's champion Japan is slotted with Malaysia and Hong Kong in Group W. Korea, India, and Kazakhstan will wage war in Group X while China, Chinese-Taipei, and Singapore will duke it out in Group Z. The top two teams in each group will advance to the knockout quarterfinals while the four semifinalists will punch their ticket to the Thomas and Uber Cup in Aarhus, Denmark this May. Even with Momoto out, the rest of the world's best will take part in the biennial tournament, including world no. 2 Tien Chen Chou of Chinese Taipei, no. 5 Anthony Ginting and no. 7 Jonatan Christie of Indonesia, no. 9 Ka Long Angus Ng of Hong Kong, and no. 10 Kanta Tsuneyama of Japan for the men's. The top seven female shuttlers in the world will also join, namely China's Yu Fei Chen, Chinese Taipei's Tzu Ying Tai, Japanese duo Akane Yamaguchi and Nozomi Okuhara, Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon, India's Pusarla Sindh, and China's Bing Jiao He. "We're happy to help out in the country's hosting of this prestigious international sports event. This is very much in line with our advocacy of helping nation-building through sports. We strongly believe that the positive values that sports promote can help our people to improve our lives," said PLDT chairman Manny V. Pangilinan, who has been supporting Philippine Badminton for the last decade. "This is going to be the first time that there will be so many top-ranked players who will be going to this tournament in the Philippines. These will be exciting times for the Philippines," added Philippine Badminton Association president Alfredo Benitez......»»

SEA Games: PHI volleyball squads to join opening parade

The Philippine men’s and women’s volleyball teams are stoked for their participation in the traditional parade of nations in the 30th Southeast Asian Games. Men’s team skipper John Vic De Guzman is looking forward to joining the spectacle at the Philippine Arena on Saturday when all 11 participating countries march with their respective banners as part of the festivities to kick off the biennial meet hostilities.      “Sobrang excited, this will be my third SEA Games pero this will be my first time to be in the opening parade,” said De Guzman, who has donned the tricolors since the 2015 Singapore edition when the country participated in volleyball after a 10-year hiatus.  Unlike the women’s team that joined the parade in 2015 with Alyssa Valdez as flagbearer, the men’s squad will make its debut in the highlight of the opening event. The men's national team will be wearing Barongs created by renowned designer Francis Libiran during the parade of nations in the 30th Southeast Asian Games opening ceremony on Saturday at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.   “Actually buong men’s volleyball team, first time [sumama sa parade],” said De Guzman. “Noong 2015, late kami umalis pa-Singapore, and 2017 [Kuala Lumpur] hindi kami umabot sa opening kasi same day ang flight namin. So kung gaano ka-excited? SOBRANG EXCITED! Kasi walang kasing saya na lumakad siguro doon sa harap mismo ng mga Pilipinong ipaglalaban namin dito pa mismo sa Pilipinas.” “Pare-pareho kaming first timer sa parada kaya sigurado akong tatatak ng husto sa aming mga puso ang experience na ito,” added De Guzman. Top hitter Marck Espejo shares the same feeling. “Sa akin po, siyempre sobrang excited kasi nga noong first SEA Games ko napanood namin 'yung mga babae kasama sa Singapore nag-parade,” Espejo said. “So parang ang saya lalo na maraming tao, lalo na sa Philippines 'yung SEA Games. And sobrang excited talaga parang gusto ko maglakad sa oval habang napapagiliran ng maraming tao tapos kasama 'yung ibang delegations din.” For men’s head coach Dante Alinsunurin walking with the country’s delegation in front a huge, cheering crowd has always been his dream. Something that he and women’s head coach Shaq Delos Santos didn’t get a chance to experience back when they were playing for the national team. “Ako gusto kong ma-experience kasi noong naglaro ako laging nakahiwalay ang SEA Games [opening ceremony]. Nu’ng sa Vietnam nasa probinsya kami, tapos nitong dito ang [2005] SEA Games nasa Bacolod kami,” he said. “Iba yung feeling na pumaparada ka, makikita mo ang opening. Parang doon pa lang mararamdaman mo talaga na nasa SEA Games na.” Women’s squad team captain Aby Marano along with Valdez and veterans Jia Morado, Jovelyn Gonzaga and Rhea Dimaculangan are on their second run in the parade of nations. “Excited ako this time kasi last na SEA Games namin hindi kami nakapunta sa opening,” said Marano, who is on her third SEA Games stint. “’Yung unang opening ceremony na napuntahan ko is SEAGAMES sa Singapore grabe ang ganda ng program. Goosebumps all the way sa pagkaka-orchestrate nila ng opening sobrang galing na amaze ako sa presentation nila. Napakagarbo feeling ko nga nasa Olympics ako nun eh.” Marano is also excited to see what the organizers of this Games have in store for the audience and the guests. “Kaya excited ako this time kasi dito sa Pilipinas gaganapin,” she said. “Gusto ko makita kung papaano maibabahagi ang kulturang Pilipino sa pamamagitan ng opening ceremony na yan.” Team Philippines will be wearing the creation of renowned fashion designer Francis Libiran.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Sobrang nakakataba ng puso -- Gonzaga on those who helped her nephew CV

PacificTown Army star Jovelyn Gonzaga was grateful for the overflowing support and financial help from the local volleyball community for her nephew Calix Vander or CV who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.   Gonzaga was particularly thankful to close friends Carmela Tunay and Rachel Anne Daquis for organizing a jersey auction as a fund-raising campaign and to all volleyball players and athletes who participated. “Sobrang thankful ako sa auction lalo na kay Carmela Tunay and Rachel Anne Daquis na sobrang supportive from the start until natapos, actually hanggang ngayon,” said Gonzaga. “Alam namin na magiging successful, hindi namin alam na magiging overflowing at overwhelming yung support ng mga tao and lalo na ng mga kapwa kong players na kusang nag-reach out para tumulong kay CV.” Volleyball stars Alyssa Valdez, Jema Galanza, John Vic De Guzman, college basketball standout Ricci Rivero and PBA stars Alex Cabagnot and June Mar Fajardo were among those who donated their jerseys for the auction.  “And meron pang iba na ayaw magpangalan. So sobrang nakakataba sa puso na 'yung love nila kay CV is ramdam na ramdam namin,” Gonzaga added. Tunay initiated the fund-raising event early this month and generated enough funds to shoulder her three-year old nephew’s chemotherapy. Gonzaga said that CV just finished his first cycle of chemo session. “Si CV ngayon, kakatapos lang ng first cycle niya last week, so nagsisimula ng maglagas 'yung buhok niya so kinalbo na siya ng Tatay (Jade) niya,” she said. “Magsa-start na 'yung cycle niya next week Tuesday, second cycle niya na.” Gonzaga added that CV is a fighter and has a very positive disposition. “So so far, so good kasi strong naman si CV. Hindi naman niya iniisip na may sakit siya and lagi niya na lang dinadala into positive. Every time parang laging sinasabi niya na, 'Punta nanaman ako hospital, turok nanaman ako nito, iyak na naman ako,'” said Gonzaga. “Parang, alam mo 'yun, inuunahan niya na para every time ini-injection-an siya, iyak lang siya saglit tapos okay na,” she continued. “Sabi nga ng mga doctors sa PCMC, gusto nilang awardan si CV kasi sobrang tapang na bata. Minsan lang sila naka-encounter ng bata na hindi iyakin pagdating sa injections so far so good kay CV and prayers lang talaga for CV.” Gonzaga was also thankful for those who donated directly to her brother’s account.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
