Cuba’s best volleyball player, Mireya Luis, was included in the International Hall of Fame of that sports discipline, based in Massachusetts, the United States.

Mireya Luis made the Cuban national team that won the Olympic title on three consecutive occasions, in addition to making great international achievements.

According to experts, Mireya Luis impressed volleyball fans from all over the world with her spectacular game, intelligence, physical training and special ability to jump.

That way, she became one of the most outstanding players of all times in the history of volleyball.

Since she retired after the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, in 2000, she has been a member of the Cuban Volleyball Federation, and as of August 2004, she was a member of the Athlete’s Commission of the International Olympic Committee.

Another player included in the Hall of Fame was Karolyn Kirby, from the United States, who, according to the International Volleyball Federation, was the world’s best beach volleyball player from 1992 to 1994.

Sou brasileira e tenho 33 anos, mais da metade destes estou sempre torcendo pelo Brasil contra Cuba nas quadras de volei - sendo que ao mesmo tempo que torcia muito pelo meu pais, senti sempre uma grande ADMIRAÇAO pelo voleibol de Cuba. Parabéns às cubanas que sempre dominaram o esporte e fizeram com que as partidas contra o Brasil fossem memoráveis independente de quem ganhasse.
