Former University of Sto. Tomas Queen Tigress Sisi Rondina's life story was featured in Maalaala Mo Kaya on Saturday.
Kim Chiu played the role of the four-time UAAP beach volleyball champion and the heart of the Tigresses, who against great odds climbed up to the championship round for the first time in eight years in Season 81.
True to Sisi Rondina's disclaimer, we did shed a few - or far too many - tears watching the journey of the 5-foot-6 probinsyana from a small fishing village in Compostela, Cebu to one of the most recognizable volleyball figures in the country today.
Here are the actors and actresses who played the important people in Sisi Rondina's life story in this week's episode of Asia's longest-running drama anthology.
