Antipolo Councilor Christian Alarcon loves playing basketball, but he is not immune to the risks it poses.
Alarcon injured his left foot while playing a game. He said this happened even if his right foot has not yet fully healed.
But this has not diminished his love for the sport.
In a Facebook post, he acknowledged that basketball is a physical sport, and accidents happen.
But if he would be asked if he would stop playing the game, his answer would be “no.”
It is fun to play basketball because he gets to meet a lot of people. As long as his body could stand it, he would play the game.
But this doesn’t mean he will abuse his body, he added.
He’ll tend to his injury first before getting back on the court!
“Hindi pa gumagaling yung kanang paa ko, tapos kaliwa naman nadali.”
Basketball is a physical sport, hindi natin maiiwasan ang aksidente, kung tatanungin ako kung titigil na ba ako maglaro para maiwasan to?
Syempre ndi, lalaro pa din ako!
Masaya maglaro ndi namn dahil magaling ako, pero madami ako nakikilalang tao sa paglalaro nag Basketball, habang kaya pa ng katawan ko game pa tayo!
Hindi ko namn sinasabing abusuhin natin ang katawan natin sa paglalaro, ilaro nyo lang ang kaya ng katawan nyo, mag enjoy kayo, papawis lang kasama ang tropa, at iguide ung mga batang manlalaro na gusto matuto at mag improve.
Salamat po sa nag buhat sakin kahapon, sagot ko na Redhorse nyo,” Alarcon posted.
