Pocari Sweat-Air Force hitter Myla Pablo wasted no time in proving that she has her fellow Filipina volleybelles' backs.
Pablo, a three-time champion for the Lady Warriors in the V-League and the Premier Volleyball League, was cut from the 14-woman national team pool that is set to compete in the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia this August.
The former National University Lady Bulldog was part of the initial 20 players considered for the squad but was left off.
Volleyball fans quickly jumped on social media to point out what they consider an unfair exclusion from the lineup, but Pablo was also swift in defending her fellow players.
Guys support nalang tayo kung sino ang napili 14players for NT wag nalang tayo mambash deserve nilang mapili 🙂 maging masaya nalang tayo or sumuporta sa mga napili na players godbless.. ❤️❤️— myla pablo (@iamMylaPablo) June 14, 2018
The national volleyball team consists of Aby Maraño, Majoy Baron, Mika Reyes, Jaja Santiago, Jia Morado, Kim Fajardo, Dawn Macandili, Kim Kianna Dy, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Cha Cruz, Ces Molina, and Alyssa Valdez, while Rhea Dimaculangan and Denden Lazaro are listed as reserve players.
The final roster was handpicked by the national team coaches made up of head tactician Shaq Delos Santos and assistants coaches in UST mentor Kungfu Reyes and Bryan Esquibel.
