  Lydia Maiyo, an opposite spiker and a young sister of Philip Maiyo who plays professional volleyball for CSKA, Sofia of Bulgaria, deserves attention.

Lydia (22) who is one of the tallest players in the Kenyan team at 186 cm, and plays for Kenya Prisons, the African Cup of Clubs Champions, will be making a second trip to Japan after being a member of the Kenyan Team to the 2007 World Cup. It is expected that she, like her brother who has been doing well for his club in Europe, shall be noticed.
