Late teen, interest in volleyball

Late teen, interest in volleyball
January 01 21:00 2006


Apart from the sports sessions at school, it didn’t do too much swimming.


Neither did I ride my bicycle.

Run, Tennis, Fencing, and Volleyball

One day I’ve decided I had enough of tennis and moved to volleyball. There was a friendly club in my parent’s town, and we’ve managed to win the league and local tournaments lots of time. We regularly had our pictures in the local newspaper, relating our exploits. I think the biggest achievement was a 1/4 final game in a very popular outdoor tournament, where the level goes from amateur to professional volleyball players.

Fencing was still full on. I remember going at some point for the regional selection, in Orleans.

I also though I could have a career in sports after my baccalaureat (sort of A level). Unfortunately, I’ve failed the selections in Montpellier and Bordeaux. I remember, in Montpellier, ending up being judged in the same session as an international junior volleyball player. #nochance!

Finally, my asthma treatment which lasted years was over. But I was still using my Ventolin from time to time.
