In MANILA, Philippines – College of Santo Tomas star spiker EJ Laure showed up of the year on Saturday, as she viewed the UAAP Season 80 diversion between the Brilliant Tigresses and the De La Salle College Woman Spikers at the Shopping center of Asia Field.
It denoted the first occasion when that the previous UAAP Newbie of the Year had been seen by fans since uncovering in December that she will miss the season due to an “unending shoulder damage.”
Her choice to sit out the year wound up noticeably web-based social networking feed, due to some extent to the unclear idea of her damage. Fans transparently thought about whether it was for sure the genuine reason, with some hypothesizing that she had scholarly weaknesses. Others even set that Laure was pregnant.
“Tao noise naman sila, meron silang sariling opinyon,” Laure said Saturday as she examined out of the blue the web-based social networking kickback that she was buried in. “Hindi ko maiiwasang ‘sway sabihin sa kanila na, ”Sway, ‘di ganoon.’ Sa kanila na rin ‘yun.”
Laure influenced it to clear that the fans’ hypothesis were false.
“Hindi naman totoo ‘yung sinasabi nila,” she focused.
“(Pero) nasa kanila na lang ‘yun, kung ano ang zeal nilang sabihin. Kasi siyempre, tao clamor naman sila, may sarili silang opinyon,” she included.
Laure additionally looked to elucidate the shoulder damage that constrained her to sit out the whole Season 80 competition. She went to Saturday’s match with her correct arm in a sling.
“A year ago, nagpa-infusion ako,” she clarified. “Evening, ilang days dad lang, umalis agad kami for Thailand.”
“So hindi ako nakapag-treatment, kasi ‘di ba sa Thailand, sunod-sunod ‘yung preparing namin. Noong AFC (All-Filipino Meeting of the Philippine Superliga) lang siya sobrang na-feel ko ‘yung torment ulit,” Laure included.
It will require some investment for Laure to come back to the court, as she still can’t seem to be cleared by her specialist.
By the by, she is very hopeful about her group’s prospects even without her in Season 80.
