Alyssa Valdez and the rest of the Filipinas volleybelles played once again in the 2018 Asian Games after 36 years of absence.

Valdez trended on Twitter with 27.9k tweets as of posting. Many praised Valdez’s performance while others took their attention on the rotation in the third set.

In the first set, Valdez used her experience playing in Thailand, playing with the defense of the Thais. Head coach Shaq delos Santos benched Valdez, Jaja Santiago, Aby Maraño, Kim Fajardo, Kim Dy, and Mika Reyes in the third set. It doesn’t work well with netizens.

Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Cha Cruz, Jia Morado, and Delos Santos also became trending topics.
