Go for Gold-Air Force signs Bryan Bagunas to two-year extension

With the entire sporting world still at a halt, Go for Gold-Air Force made sure it will keep one of its core pieces once sports resume.

Air Force re-signed Philippine men’s national volleyball team ace Bryan Bagunas for another two years, as the organization announced on its Facebook page, Wednesday.

“The Go for Gold Men’s Volleyball Team is proud to resign Bryan Bagunas for another two years,” read the statement.

Bagunas last played for the Jet Spikers in the 2019 Spikers’ Turf Reinforced Conference Finals. Then, Air Force surrendered its crown to the Marck Espejo-led Cignal HD Spikers.

The 22-year-old Bagunas, though, will only suit up for the Jet Spikers if his schedule permit. He still has a live contract with Japanese V.League squad Oita Miyoshi Weisse Adler.

The former UAAP MVP had a promising debut overseas following his stint with Air Force. Unfortunately, it was not enough, as the Oita-based squad finished in ninth place with a lowly 3-24 win-loss record.

“He is also currently signed to Oita Miyoshi in the Japanese V. League but will play for our team when his schedule allows.

“Known as one of the heroes of the country’s Cinderella run last SEA Games, Bryan has been instrumental in our first season of the Spikers Turf, where we placed runner up in the reinforced conference,” the statement continued.

Bagunas was a key cog in the Philippines’ magical run in the 30th Southeast Asian Games. He led the country to a historic silver finish — its first medal in 28 years.
