Nancy Metcalf

Nancy Metcalf ready to show her full potential

At 26-year’s of age USA’s Nancy Metcalf has finally received the break she’s longed for and she’s determined to make the most of it at the 2005 World Grand Prix.

The left-hand spiker is the owner of an explosive attack and is expected to be one of the main weapons for USA in the World Grand Prix. After being used off the bench in past competitions, this year’s event should be a great chance for the Olympian to fully expose her athletic talent.

“I think our team has a great opportunity to improve and play well as a team,” said Metcalf. “The Grand Prix is unique because it forces teams into maintaining a high level of play for a long period of time. Our ability to do this will be directly reflected in our performance.”

Metcalf pointed out several characteristics that make the World Grand Prix a special tournament:

“First there is a chance to play so many matches against very good teams, second, the fans are very kind and welcoming and third, travelling to different countries is a unique experience that only this tournament offers.”

One of the things Metcalf enjoys most about this premier competition is “seeing my friends from other teams and also some of the fans I’ve gotten to meet in other years of playing in this tournament.”

Metcalf has an ambitious goal for this year’s competition and it is to try to win each leg even if she recognizes the fact that USA have many new players

“As a team we haven’t been training together very long, so another goal is to come together as a team and continue to improve our play.”
