Gilas Women U16: Yumul celebrates birthday with win in national team debut

June 25, 2022

Kristan Yumul made sure her first ever game donning a Pilipinas jersey would be special. The 5-foot-9 shooter did not only play a large part in Gilas Pilipinas Women’s 104-68 trouncing of Indonesia on Friday to jumpstart their FIBA Asia U16 Women’s Championship Division B campaign; the game day apparently coincided with her 17th birthday too, so she was able to celebrate in style.
