Alyssa Valdez to miss PWNVT Thailand training due to injury

The Philippine Women’s National Volleyball Team suffered another setback in its preparation for the Southeast Asian Games.

In an Instagram post by the official page of the Rebisco Pilipinas Volleyball Team (@rebiscosambansa), national team mainstay Alyssa Valdez will not be able to participate in the training camp in Thailand as she sustained an injury to her ankle.

Valdez was supposed to join the Nationals on Sunday, September 15.

Let’s give our love and all-out support to our Phenom Alyssa Valdez who injured her ankle,” the post read.

“Because of this, she won’t be able to train in Thailand.”

The post did not state what caused the three-time PVL MVP’s injury, but she was advised to “undergo physical therapy.”

Moreover, it was also not stated whether or not she will be able to recover in time for the Southeast Asian Grand Prix, which starts on September 20, in Nakhon Ratchasima.

The development came in the wake of the refusal of Ageo Medics and Motolite to loan Jaja Santiago and Iris Tolenada, respectively; the injury announcement of Mika Reyes; and the withdrawal of five national pool members in Jema Galanza, Celine Domingo, Tots Carlos, Angel Cayuna, and Jerrili Malabanan.

As of this posting, the current lineup for the team that will compete in the SEA Grand Prix consists of Aby Maraño, Jia Morado, Alohi Robins-Hardy, Eya Laure, Majoy Baron, Maddie Madayag, Roselyn Doria, Kalei Mau, Ces Molina, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Mylene Paat, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Dawn Macandili and Kath Arado.
