Playing for the Seniors Team of the UST Growling Tigers back in ’92 to ’95, I was always fascinated by one coach. A mustache bearing man, who was also the better half of Philippine athletics legend, Elma Muros – the enigmatic Jojo Posadas.
After two decades after our first encounter, I finally sat down and had coffee with him, to discuss about his family, career and the sports we commonly love.
