I am a big fan of sports.  My favorites are basketball, volleyball, swimming, track and field, gymnastics, diving, skating and synchronize swimming.  These are the sports that I do not want to miss.  I can watch some of the games I have mentioned above during Olympics games.  But now, I am hooked to UAAP women’s volleyball in the country.  This is a collegiate tournament that happens every year.  Although my team did not able to make it to the final, I still want to watch the game because of my second favorite team which is the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) Lady Eagles.

The ADMU team will go against the defending champion De La Salle University (DLSU) Lady Spikers/Archers.  The final series is so exciting because of the ladder that the ADMU team surpassed to get to the final.  They beat the Adamson University (ADU) team and the twice to beat National University (NU) to reach to the final.  The undefeated team in the elimination and second round DLSU has thrice to beat advantage.  ADMU has to beat them thrice to get the championship crown, while the DLSU has to beat the ADMU team twice.  Compared to ADMU, DLSU has the heights, experience, and seniors.  Most of the players of the ADMU are rookies, but with their abilities and determination, they able to make it to the final.  The ADMU leads the series 2-1.  Today is a do or die game.  Winner take all as they say.  I will stay at home and watch the ADMU beats the defending champion DLSU.  Go go go ADMU!

Beach Volleyball Actions

I enjoyed watching the beach volleyball actions at London 2012 Olympic games. One of the sports that I like and love to watch. I am glad that the do have Olympic coverage because I am enjoying the beach volleyball actions now. Even though I already knew who are the winners, still I watch the game because I do not want to miss the championship action. I love to watch these lovely women representing their country. They are blessed with this talent. The talent that I like because I do love sports. Unfortunately, sports doesn’t love me that much so I just settled being a fan.

I have watched beach volleyball sport local and international especially in Olympic games. And it is my wish to see beach volleyball players from my country to compete internationally. Maybe this is not the time yet for the country to excel in this kids of sport. But I really do hope soon. Also, want to see international competition like Olympic games for real.

How about you? Are you a sporty person or love to watch sports? If so, what kind of sports do you wish to see?
