Amongst the Sporting Elite

Amongst the sporting elite……

Don’t know if you have noticed, but there’s been a pretty significant sporting event taking place in London recently…..the Olympic Games?

We were there! 

Su Ragazzi was represented in both the men’s and the women’s indoor volleyball events.  Who would have thought when we started the Club all those years ago that it would lead to Olympic triumph!

Lynne Beattie started with Su Ragazzi when she was 14, and she captained the women’s GB team in the Olympics.

Chris Lamont started with the Club when he was 15 - and he starred as a Middle Blocker for the men’s GB Team.

Mark McGivern played for Su Ragazzi after beginning his volleyball career with Team Fife, and he also is an Olympian.

Well done to all three.  Well done to the people who helped them get there;  to their families,  their teammates, and to Scottish Volleyball….well done indeed.

 

Congratulations also to Joanne Morgan and Shauna Mullin, both Scottish, both Olympians.
