Kana started playing Volleyball at the age of eight and
is now regarded as the most talented player in the team.
She is physically well-built at 187cm and 82kg and in a
change to most other Japanese players can compete with
the tallest and most powerful of foreign players.
Although Kana is still learning the technical aspects of
the game as an outside spiker, she showed her true
potential when she recorded the highest success rate of
spiking among Asian spikers at the 2003 World Grand
Kana is very emotional, and even during training, she
often sheds tears easily. Kana’s younger sister is also
a promising volleyball player and the Oyama sisters are
already well known in Japan.
She is a typical young girl of today and has recently
been absorbed in exchanging e-mails with her friends.
Her favourite food is chicken e.g. fried chicken and
Yakitori, screwed grilled chicken.
