Check out the impressive and colorful opening of University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 78, which symbolized this year’s theme: “Tumitindig, Sumusulong.”
It was an “archipelago-inspired” routine performed by students from different colleges of the University of the Philippines (UP), which is the host school of this year’s games.
The performers, clad in native clothing, wore the colors of the eight competing schools and carried native drums.
“Ikinagagalak ng UP na muling maging punong-abala sa pinakamalaki at pinakatanyag na palarong pampamantasan sa buong kapuluan,” said UP president Alfredo Pascual during his welcoming remarks.
“Muli nating makikitang tumitindig at sumusulong ang mga mararangal at mahuhusay na atleta mula sa mga pangunahing pamantasan sa Kalakhang Maynila.”
He later urged the crowd to applaud their respective universities which will tangle in different competitions including the more popular sports like the men’s basketball and the women’s volleyball, then formally opened season with the traditional catchphrase: “Let the games begin!”
