Django willing to join Asian Games team

MANILA, Philippines - Newly crowned world pool champion Francisco “Django” Bustamante yesterday expressed his willingness to join buddy Efren “Bata” Reyes and the Philippine team to the coming Asian Games in Guangzhou.
Bustamante originally failed to make the contingent after faltering in the local qualifiers but with his recent triumph in Doha, playing coach Reyes and Billiards and Snooker Congress of the Philippines officials are considering to insert the pool ace into the squad.
“I’m truly willing to join the Asian Games if they have a spot for me,” Bustamante said during the “POC on Air” radio program.
But since all the berths in the billiards and snooker squad have been filled up, Reyes and BSCP president Bong Ilagan would likely assign the power-breaking Bustamante as either a training partner or alternate.
“It would be better if we have a world champion like Django in our team. His presence alone would certainly sow fear into the hearts of our opponents,” Reyes said in Filipino.

Bustamante has previously brought honor to the country in the Asiad, teaming up with Antonio Lining to win the 9-ball doubles gold back in 2002 in Busan.
