Guess who caught the expression? Looks like a Pinoy photog
Here shes not impressed with Jenna Bush's dougie so she teaches her how to on a double decker
Indeed you cannot underestimate the heart of a champion. And Brazil has just proven that by beating the heavily favored United States to win the gold in women's volleyball. It was really a major upset considering that the Brazilians lost to the Americans in the group stage and the US spikers have never lost a match prior to their defeat in the final. And Brazil barely made it to the quarterfinal and survived six match points to beat Russia in the last eight. What an amazing story.
On the other hand, it was a painful defeat for the Americans. Now, the three-time defending World Grand Prix champions will have to wait for four more years to get another chance of claiming the elusive gold in this event. The twist, however, is they will have to do that in Rio de Janeiro.
ngayon lang nagising after watching the game of Brazil and USA.. just can't move on kay JAQUE.. grabe ang floor defense! mas marami pa yata syang magandang saves kesa dun sa libero nila.. at ang taas ng percentage sa attack.. sya nga lang yata yung pumupuntos nung first set.. saan bang league at team sya naglalaro? at masubaybayan..hahaha
replay nga pala sa AKTV ngayon yung game.. gonna watch her again!! wooo!!!
Ipapalabas ba mamaya sa IBC 13 AKTV ang bronze medal match at gold medal match sa men's vb. Malapit na magsimula ang bronze medal match.
Hindi gumagana 'yung link nila tapos malabo pa, parang ibon lang na pinapalo 'yung bola sa TV. HAHAHAHA
Help. Kailangan ko ng malinaw. Banned 'yung link na binigay sa akin. Huhuhuhu
Who could still be on the Brazil team come 2016?
However, both squads have a very deep pool of talents so we cannot say they could still be there four years after.
^ Hi. Thanks. I received it.
May pagka malas ang Russia sa ginto. Talo sila sa Cuba nung 2000, tapos sa China naman nung 2004. Tapos wala na since then.. lol
