Playing at the Olympic Games is always a dream for many players.

It is even more difficult for many who are involved in team sports as apart from sevens rugby, many teams in Kenya have found it difficult to play at the Olympics. And for many getting on the plane to the next Olympics has always remained a dream.

For Malkia Strikers setter Jane Wacu, her dream has finally come true as after many years of hard work with the national team, it is finally time to play at the biggest stage for her.

The national women volleyball team last played at the Olympics 17 years ago.

“The Olympics is a dream come true for me. I can say I have achieved all that I could as a volleyball player but had not played at this stage,” Wacu said.

“It is a first Olympics for everyone in the team and we have done well in training so we hope to do well starting with the match against Japan tomorrow.”
