The Volleyball Lions of Cameroon failed to clinch a continental title in Tunisia last Sunday, but their outstanding performance in competition, has received lots of applause. Cameroon won five straight games by a similar 3#0 score, before being edged by Tunisia in the Final.
The Volleyball Lions bagged home three individual accolades, prominent amongst which was Yvan Arthur Kody’s best spiker award. Reacting to winning the award, Kody said “in 2017 I won the same trophy, so I’m very happy for that. This was a personal challenge for me, because I wanted to retain this trophy. I’m proud of myself and my other colleagues who won similar awards”.
Despite not winning the most coveted Volleyball trophy in the continent, Yvan Arthur Kody feels satisfied with their performance. “We are super proud because we did our best on the court. We played a very difficult game against Tunisia. It was really hard on the court, but we knew we had the support of all Cameroonians. We feel a little sad because we didn’t win the trophy”. Kody said
The Lions will be taking part in the All African games that kick off in Morocco less than 10 days from today, and also the Olympic qualifying tournament that will take place in Italy, but Yvan Arthur Kody and his teammates are confident ahead of the competition. “We will just play our Volleyball that we know, be confident, be a solid group, and it’s going to work”.
Another Volleyball Lion, Arthur Voukeng believes the lions success in their next outings, will depend on their state of mind.
