Capitão de Ruanda saboreia experiência




A Ruanda veio para o Campeonato Mundial Masculino Sub-21 com pouca experiência no voleibol internacional, mas em dez dias de jogos competitivos tudo se transformou para Aimable Mutuyimana, o capitão da equipe.

Ele começou a jogar voleibol em 2007 no Ensino Médio, mas em dez dias na Turquia aprendeu mais do que em seis anos.

Pouco depois, entrou no clube da Universidade de Inatek e agora está jogando para o APR, em Ruanda, o maior clube do país não só em termos de vôlei, mas também de esportes populares como futebol e basquete.

Mesmo assim, o Campeonato Mundial foi a maior experiência não só no vôlei, mas da sua vida. “Aprendemos muito nos últimos dez dias”, ponderou. “No começo do campeonato, foi muito difícil enfrentar os grandes times do nosso grupo. Mas aprendemos muito com os seus sistemas e mentalidade. Este campeonato definitivamente melhorou o nosso modo de pensar. Esse era o nosso objetivo e acho que conseguimos isso.”
