Cayetano lauds historic bronze win for Alas Pilipinas

Manila – Senator Alan Peter Cayetano on Wednesday congratulated the Alas Pilipinas Women’s National Volleyball Team for its historic bronze medal victory at the 2024  Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenger Cup.

“Thank you Lord God for this sweet victory! For the whole team and everyone who supported them,” he said in a Facebook post at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila where the games were being held.

The team’s win marked the first time in 63 years that a Philippine team has reached the podium in the prestigious event.

“My salute to Alas Pilipinas for bringing honor to the country, happiness to the volleyball community, and unity among Filipinos,” Cayetano, the chairman emeritus of the Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF), said.

Despite a tough loss to Kazakhstan on Tuesday for a chance to win the gold, the team bounced back with remarkable determination to dominate the Australian team in the bronze medal match.

The nationals secured the bronze with set scores of 25-23, 25-15, and 25-7. This victory was especially significant as it mirrored their earlier triumph over the same team at the start of the campaign.

With the women’s leg of the AVC Challenger Cup concluded, Cayetano also expressed his support for the Alas Pilipinas Men’s National Volleyball Team who are set to compete in Bahrain next month. They will start their campaign against China before facing the host team on June 3. (Dante M. Salvana)
