Look! Christian Standhardinger posts a lengthy message about his Gilas journey and newly-wed sister


Playing for the country means a lot of sacrifices must be made in order to achieve the greater prize. Of course, Christian Standhardinger can attest to that kind of responsibility.

On Instagram, The Gilas Pilipinas big man posted a series of pictures and a lengthy caption about his own sacrifice for his country – which is missing his sister’s special day.

“I am deeply sorry I could not be there in person, little sister,” said Standhardinger.

However, the 2017 1st overall pick was happy for his newly-wed sibling, and he cannot wait to see her soon.

“…I can’t wait to see you again to give you the hug I was not able to give you today after you said “Yes I do,” he greeted.

Standhardinger’s dedication to represent the nation is truly appreciated by his family, especially his sister!
