UAAP greats assemble in ‘Legacy of Greatness’
BEFORE the 80th season of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines finally closes its curtains, ABS-CBN Sports is gathering a super lineup of legendary UAAP athletes for an exclusive interview at the Far Eastern University Auditorium that can be watched via live streaming on sports.abs-cbn.com and the ABS-CBN Sports Youtube channel, and via Facebook Live on the ABS-CBN Sports Facebook page starting at 2 p.m.
Dubbed “The Legacy of Greatness,” the online special hosted by ABS-CBN Sports digital head Mico Halili and “Upfront” host Janeena Chan brings together former UAAP women’s volleyball stars led by Ateneo De Manila University’s phenom and current Creamline Cool Smashers’ skipper Alyssa Valdez, former UST Golden Tigresses star-turned-volleyball analyst Mozzy Ravena, and former De La Salle University Lady Spiker Manilla Santos-Ng, the first and only female athlete to have her jersey number retired by her school.
Joining them are erstwhile kings and queens in their respective sports and teams like former National University Bulldogs captain Gelo Alolino, University of the East’s champion fencer and current coach Rolando Canlas, Jr., Adamson University’s 8-peat softball coach and two-time SEA Games gold medalist Ana Santiago, former University of the Philippines Lady Fighting Maroon Rep. Pia Cayetano, and the Philippines’ first woman grandmaster and UAAP Season 77 Athlete of the Year, Janelle Mae Frayna from Season 80 hosts Far Eastern University.
These UAAP greats will take in looking back at their UAAP journey, the hardships they had to endure and triumphs they got to savor individually and as a team, as well as discuss how the times and competition have drastically changed the landscape of the UAAP, among others.
Aside from that, they’ll also answer questions from Twitter that are posted with the hashtag #UAAPS80GoForGreat.
