Mireya Luis

Posted by

The German volleyball news website has just posted a teaser for an interview they have done with the legendary Cuban volleyballer Mireya Luis for their next issue.   They have also included a youtube clip of part of the interview.  The bad news is that the sound and picture quality aren’t that great.  The good news is that it is in English.  Apparently she was talent id’ed when someone saw her touch a basketball ring at the age of 12.  Given that she was shorter than 1.80m when she was a star, and so must have been much shorter at the time, that seems like an impressive feat.  And, according to her, it she did it easily!


  1. Thanks for this link Mark. Finally got around to watching it. Luis was / is probably my all time favourite player. Poetry in motion 🙂
