Fifi Sharma can’t wait to play alongside ‘inspiration’ Ced Domingo


During her time in the UAAP, Fifi Sharma would browse highlights of middle blockers to acquire additional techniques and pattern her game after them.

Now, she has the chance to play alongside one of them – Ced Domingo.

The 22-year-old Sharma shared that she feels very excited to suit up with the two-time PVL Best Middle Blocker, who decided to transfer from Creamline to Akari during the off-season.

“Very excited super kasi nung I was playing in the UAAP, I usually use her as a reference, inspiration kasi she’s one of the best middle blockers in the PVL,” said Sharma, who revealed that she reached out to Domingo after her move was announced.

“Talagang I always watch her highlights to get tips and techniques kasi medyo same height kami e so I can incorporate her techniques na ginagamit niya sa akin. I’m so excited because I get to work alongside her this conference,” she added.

Domingo is expected to arrive in the first week of March once her duties with Nakhon Ratchasima in Thailand end.

Sharma said that the addition of Domingo, as well as veteran outside hitter Grethcel Soltones and rookie libero Max Juangco, will be a huge boost for the Chargers.

The team is looking to bounce back from a seventh-place campaign in the previous conference.

The De La Salle University standout also said that the arrival of the three players puts Akari in a great position to contend for a title and stand toe-to-toe against the PVL’s best teams.

“I feel like this conference we’re more equipped to play against other teams kasi talagang we’ve had time to jell and to build closer relationships with each other. So I think this conference magma-manifest siya more inside the court,” said the daughter of former PBA player Carlo Sharma.

“Aside from aiming for the championship title, one of our goals is we’re as one, like talagang ma-prove sa sarili namin and to each and everyone na we work well as a team. We want to grow more closer with each other.”
