THIS summer, PLDT HOME Ultera, the ultra-fast wireless LTE for the home, presents the all-star Amihan Pilipinas women’s team featuring the country’s most sought-after volleyball superstars.

The 18 Amihan Pilipinas ladies, together with the country’s top coaches and in partnership with the Philippine  Volleyball  Federation  and  the  local  government  units,  are  currently  touring  ten cities nationwide to promote volleyball to young athletes at the grassroots level.

Joining forces for PLDT HOME Ultera Install Patrol, they aim to discover more talents and cultivate passion for the sport while bringing the ultra-fast LTE broadband access to more homes in the country.

Amihan Pilipinas gathers together the biggest female names in today’s cutthroat volleyball industry: Mika Reyes, Rachel Anne Daquis, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Dindin Manabat, Jaja Santiago, Nerissa Bautista, Mary Jean Balse, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Jen Reyes, Cristina Salak, Honey Royse Tubino, Rhea Katrina Dimaculangan, Maika Ortiz, Ara Galang, and Lizlee Ann Pantone.

Leading the team is an all-star coaching staff headed by Ramil De Jesus, with assistant coaches Ariel Dela Cruz and Rico De Guzman. Headlining in volleyball clinics and exhibition games with their fans all over the nation, this powerhouse cast is ready to take on the country by storm.

“We are proud to present the Amihan Pilipinas volleyball superstars which represent the female cream of the crop in local volleyball today,” PLDT HOME Marketing Head Gary Dujali said. “We’re confident that these athletes will truly inspire young fans in our Install Patrol tour. The best part is that these fans get to be mentored by the country’s top volleyball coaches and play against their favorite Amihan Pilipinas superstars. This event will culminate in a grand exhibition game which the whole family can enjoy. With this nationwide tour, we bring this sport to a whole new level, while making broadband more accessible to more Filipinos so they can experience the strongest connections at home.”

BROCK Lesnar was given a storyline suspension by Stephanie McMahon for his antics during the WWE Raw show on Tuesday (Monday in the United States).

But a source revealed the reason behind the "indefinite ban".

The source said on Wednesday that the WWE gave Lesnar the green light to play competitive basketball.

"He wanted to try basketball especially after he saw clips of Manny Pacquiao playing the game in the Philippines," the source, who requested anonymity, said. 

He added, "when the WWE found out about his desires, they worked out on the script of him on a rampage after Seth Rollins rejects his fight offer that will lead to the indefinite suspension."

According to the source, the former UFC and WWE champion, who was once included in the roster of American football team Minnesota Vikings, has begun training to get in shape to become the import of Pacquiao's PBA team Kia.

The source, however, concluded, "By the way, Happy April Fools' Day, bro."

Chai talks about Under Armour's support for grassroots basketball programs

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Under Armour made a pledge to support the rising stars of Philippine basketball through a partnership with the NBTC for the recently held national final.

Adrian Chai, the Chief Marketing Officer for Under Armour Southeast Asia, told the press more about UA and the tie-up with the program aiming to further improve the high school basketball scene.

Press (P)-Under Armour is new to the Philippines. What has been the response so far to the brand and the product?

Adrian Chai (C)-The response so far has been tremendous especially with the rise of the brand in the USA. In particular, the basketball, compression attire and running range has gained quite significant traction with the technologies built in such as new "Charged Cushioning" and footwear being made and developed in a bra factory. What has been interesting is that the women's range has taken traction quite well with many athletes and personalities trying and feeling the difference technology products has to offer. 

P-Who are the Under Armour's Brand Ambassadors outside Steph Curry? Are there plans for local athletes?

C-There are already quite a number of athletes that Under Armour has recently signed up from Tennis star Andy Murray to the greatest Olympian and medalist Michael Phelps. We have also non sporting athletes that exemplify the Will to succeed and overcome such as Ballerina Misty Copeland and Super Model and mother Gisele Bundchen. 

Looking toward the Philippines, we have also local athletes such as Gretchen Ho and Johan Aguilar. Apart from them there are also very known personalities like Piolo Pascual and Senator Pia Cayetano, who are avid fans and athletes who actively compete and train. 

P-How did the UA come around to sponsoring the NBTC? How did you find the All-Star Game and the NBTC Finals?

C-We were working through Coach Eric on some programs which may include involving up and coming basketball stars. Looking at the rise of basketball and the love for the game in the Philippines, it was a great opportunity for us to show our support for up and coming players just like the way they do it in the USA with the Elite 24 program. 

P-What's next for UA with regards to local sports?

C-We are constantly looking to find synergies with different sports to work with the brand. It is however also important that we do not digress from the core competency of our apparel that involves training and our key sporting categories. We will embark on come exciting programs in basketball and also involve locals in our latest Earn Your Armour challenge where Filipinos across the country can join up and as a community to engage and train using Under Armour's recently acquired fitness tracking app Endomondo. We will tie this in with local on ground activation called Armour@The Fort where fans of the brand and others can join in and train up with our partner gyms and trainers.


Love for kids, memory of uncle inspire Alamo to support charity fun run in Alabang

Friday, March 20, 2015

Kat Alano (second from the left) showed her support for High Miles
for the Children fun run.
ACTRESS Kat Alano expressed her full support for High Miles for the Kids, a fun run for the benefit of the St. Rita Orphanage, and a childhood experience pushed her to do so.

In the pre-race press conference at the Azumi Boutique Hotel on Friday, Alano revealed a story about a relative diagnosed with cerebral palsy, something she was reminded of after finding out that some of the children in the orphanage have the said sickness.

"The fact that they have two children with cerebral palsy was a very big deal for me because I have an uncle actually who's already in his 60's who was born with cerebral palsy," she relayed.

Alano also said that she loves kids so much that when she was called by Belle Belarmino, the head of Big House Production, the lead organizer of the run, she never hesitated to say yes in promoting the event.

"The children are very close to my heart," the actress continued.

Meanwhile, Belarmino admitted that she was deeply concerned about the orphanage's expenses, eventually pushing her to come up with the fun run.

"Na-shock ako noong [nalaman ko na] PHP300 thousand ang kanilang month expenses, and that's very, very costly," Belarmino said, vowing part of the proceeds of the future Big House events will be donated to St. Rita.

The High Miles for the Children will take place on May 3 at the Filinvest City in Muntinlupa.

There will be a 5K, 10K, and a 16K run in the said event. Registration fees are at PHP400, PHP500, and PHP700 respectively.

For registration inquiries, call 09272825654, 09098932494, or 09264789248.
