EXCLUSIVE FOR WoV: Canadian wonderkind, Daenan Gyimah – “My goal is to play in the Olympics”

2137 0

Ladies and gents, prepare your palms and get ready to be impressed by the Canadian wonderkid Daenan Gyimah.

 

The volleyball world has already met him as we have published the video featuring his insane vertical jump. Let’s find out more things about Gyimah, who is also involved in music…

You are well-known by your crazy vertical. How people react when they see you during the warm-up sessions?

“During my warm-ups, I actually never jump 100%. I act like I’m going to, but never push off the ground. That way warms me up more,” says Daenan Gyimah.

Can you give some advice to those who want to improve the vertical?

“My advice would be to work on technique. My jump is based on the techique.”

The famous sports website Bleacher Report has written about you, asking literally “Why isn’t this volleyball player with crazy hops playing basketball?” – what would be your answer?

I don’t like basketball as much. I feel like there’s an extra dimension to volleyball.”

What are your career goals?

My only real volleyball goal is to play in the Olympics.”

Do you have some role models or favorite players in volleyball?

Justin Duff has always be my favorite.”

What would be your message for all young volleyball players?

My advice would be to make every rep and second count. Because they add up,” says Daenan Gyimah for WorldofVolley.

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69
Have you watch or seen the statistics of the final of Champions League?
Ivan Zaytsev with 14 pts 11 spikes(60% kill with only one fault)
Atanasijevic with only 9 pts 6 kills(32% 4 faults)

Conclusion:
Let's get rid of Zaytsev. Just funny. lol Reply

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69 Check their wins. How many gold medals they have with Leon? How many gold medals they achieved without him? Zenit Kazan will be in bit trouble against the other heavyweights in Russia and Europe. With him on your side they dominated everyone besides Sada Cruzeiro until last year.
Anderson is getting old. He is very mediocre nowadays. He is not important to Zenit Kazan anymore. Only his serve is good. Mikhailov will soon be at his thirties. Poletaev may be good but he needs to prove himself in another club while Mikhailov still reigns supreme as Russia's best opposite.


Atanasijevic's contract will end this year. Same as Zaytsev. One of them will leave if Wilfredo Leon signs a contract with Perugia
Atanasijevic should leave. He chokes in crucial moments. I'd rather have Zaytsev who plays with all his heart, a more reliable player in the end game and a complete player with all the skills in the world a player could ask for. He is also a better team player.

Re: @duh
yes when mikayhlov was injured, the young poletaev played for zenit during the russian championship the setter is grbic and the mvp is anderson. i followed zenit kazan. i know their history. what i mean is that zenit kazan can still dominate even without leon. even leon was named most of kazan MVP the club can still be a force to be reckoned with, without him.

Sirci is dreaming winning CHAMPIONS LEAGUE and put PERUGIA in WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS stage like LUBE does to attract more SPONSORSHIPS and INVESTMENT. SIRCI thought HIRING Ivan Zaytsev can bring PERUGIA, Champions League Trophy and a Ticket to World Club Championships.

Sirci don't think about that. he is dreaming of LEON so no matter what IVAN has to leave. Russell and Atanasijevis contract until 2019 so the only player he need to release is IVAN. Reply
