Mass volleyball making its mark in Mongolia

 
The MVA plans on doubling the number of playing courts for next year after the event proved to be hugely popular with the local population.
 

Ulan Bator, Mongolia, August 16, 2013 – A Volley All Festival was held in Mongolia at the Yanzag Youth Camp, 30 km away from the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. This was the first time that the Mongolian Volleyball Association (MVA) has taken part in the event.  

A total of 900 young players joined the competition, which included 109 girls’ teams and 109 boys’ teams coming from different provinces and districts around the country. Many private TV channels were on hand to publicise the festival and local sponsors lent their support to the event.

The festival, which took place on June 16, was also an occasion to celebrate the achievement of judoka Nyam-Ochir, who won a bronze medal for the country at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
