In a tough competition like the Asian Games, it is a common scene among athletes to take a photo with fellow athletes whom they consider their idols.
Regardless of whatever sports they are playing, these athletes take their golden opportune time to finally have a picture with the person they look up to.
Members of the Philippine women’s volleyball team are no stranger to this trend. In fact, the likes of Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Jia Morado, Aby Marano ‘fan-girled’ over some of their Thai volleyball idols in the likes of Thinkaow Pleumjit, Nootsara Tomkom, and Wilavan Apinyapong and took a souvenir photo with them.
Manabat also photographed with China’s Zhu Ting, much to her delight.
The girls, meanwhile, also sent their well wishes to fellow Pinoy athlete Jordan Clarkson, who will don the tricolors in the basketball event.
Let’s take a look at some of the photos when the girls and Clarkson interacted in downtown Jakarta, Indonesia:
Other players also posted photos and videos with Clarkson on their Instagram stories.
