Masaya at nakangiti na nag-selfie si Angono boy at Gilas Pilipinas player Christian Standhardinger upang ipakita ang kanyang gintong medalya.
Isa si Christian sa mga naging susi ng Team Gilas upang mapanatili ng bansa ang korona sa basketball sa Southeast Asia.
Tinalo at tinambakan ng Pilipinas ang Indonesia kagabi, Sabado, August 26, sa score na 94-55 sa 29th SEA Games na ginanap sa MABA Stadium sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Ang lahi at nanay ni Christian ay mula sa Angono, sa E. dela Paz sa Barangay San Pedro.
Ito naman ang ilang reaksyon ng mga Filipino sa naging performance ni Christian base sa kanilang comment sa official Facebook account ni Christian:
“What a game for this guy, from Jones Cup to FIBA Asia Cup and then to SEA Games.
He’d been a great factor to the Gilas team. Whenever he plays, you can see his passion for the game and even for the team, so down to earth.
Salamat sir for the basketball experience you brought to the entire Philippine Men’s Basketball team. We’re proud and happy to see such a great and humble athlete like you.”
“I’m so proud of you Christian! And all Gilas team who gave their best! I’m gonna miss you Christian!!
You showed to the Filipino people how much you love your team mates. You fought for them when other country hit and do dirty play inside the court.
I remember when you said you don”t want to see your team mates getting hurt by the other countries.”
At huli. mula kay Shanne de Mesa:
“Congrats… Even though its hard to pronounce your last name at first…at second time its hard to forget na your last name becase of being one of the Gilas champs…Hope to see you more on pH basketball…”
