Canada team interview

JULY/2010

Q: What is your team’s strength?(photo)
We have very good team chemistry. The girls have a very good working attitude and they are practicing hard everyday and pushing each other to the limits, which results in good athleticism. On the court, we are very good at blocking.
Q: How is the condition of your team?
Good.
Q: What aspects of the game do you need to improve in particular before the World Championship?
We had in our last match a lot of problems with out of system balls and with too many unforced errors. We are working a lot on our ball control skills right now.
Q: What is your team’s target in this year’s World Championship?(photo)
Go into the matches and play our best volleyball. We want to advance to the next round.
Q: Have you some exciting, talented young players we must watch out for in Japan?
Sarah Pavan is an outstanding player, but as I said before our strength is the team.
Q: How do you think about other teams in your Pool D?
We have a very strong pool. I think it is the toughest in the tournament. China and Russia are two of the top teams in the world, Turkey improved a lot in the last few years and Korea is always a very strong technical team. Dominican Republic participated 2 years in a row in the Grand Prix.
Q: Which team is the greatest competitor for you?(photo)
It is important for us to focus on our game and on our performance. We don’t care who is on the other side. We want to play our best volleyball in Japan.
Q: Is there any message for fans looking forward to the World Championship?
Enjoy the games.
