REMEMBER former Foton spiker Kayla Tiangco-Williams?

She recently graced the Olympic stage in Tokyo as a sideline reporter. And the Filipina-Jamaican star, who last saw action nearly five years ago in the Philippine SuperLiga for Foton Tornadoes (now Chery Tiggo), shared her delightful experience having reported for the Summer Games.

"One of the best experiences I have ever had," she wrote on Instagram on Monday morning, as she capped off her stay in Japan.

Tiangco-Williams added, "I’m sure I’ll reflect more on the flight home but just know I am so inspired by the athletes I’ve met & covered, grateful God brought me here safely, thankful to the amazing Olympic staff and Japanese volunteers for their hard work and hospitality and motivated to never stop dreaming."
