VISITING Croatia Volleyball Federation (CVF) President Barac Zdeslav wants Kenya government to channel resources towards the development of volleyball in the country.
"The government should pay more attention to the development of the sport especially the infrastructure. A hall for indoor games should be build to enable teams compete at top level," he noted.
He said it was his first time to witness volleyball being played on the grass and in an open space but was happy with it. "It was an experience for me to watch Volleyball in open space and I was very happy," he said. He endorsed the candidacy of Brazilian Ary Graca as the next President of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) polls planned for September in Anaheim, USA.
Barac said as the President of South America Volleyball Confederation and FIVB vice President, Graca has contributed immensely to the development over volleyball. If elected Graca will serve between 2012 and 2016. "Graca has a good vision for the development of volleyball at the grass roots and international Volleyball," said Barac, who graced the 13th Paul Bitok International tournament alongside Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) chairman Waithaka Kioni and Uganda Volleyball Federation (UVF) boss Sadik Nasiwu over the weekend. "FIVB needs someone who will have a new and different perspective of doing things for the prosperity of the sport," he said.
