An extract from Ekaterinas‘ beautiful letter and pictures showing her and FIVB Heroes: 

5 years ago, I met my first FIVB Heroe, Simona Gioli, who made an incredible impression on me. Since then, volleyball has played a huge role in my life. In the following years, I was able to talk to many FIVB Heroes.

As I said, Simona Gioli was my first personal hero. If it wasn’t for her, I probably would not have made the one hour drive again to see another volleyball match. Over time, my taste started to change. That is when I first recognized Margareta Kozuh, another FIVB Hero, as well as beach volleyball. (…)

On The first day of the Olympic Games, I realized that I should start playing beach volleyball.  (…) At the moment I must say that my favorite FIVB Hero is German beach volleyball player Laura Ludwig. She is the one who inspires me to work hard towards a successful future. Due to her and all the FIVB Heroes I hope to maybe win an Olympic gold medal myself someday.  (…)

Thank you for all the Heroes!
