A member of the U.S. team TeTori Dixon has confirmed for WorldofVolley that they are ready to take home the gold medal.

– How would you rate the performances of the USA in the regular season of the FIVB World Grand Prix?

I think we played very well. We have a pretty young team and I think everyone has a great attitude and is playing at a very high level. The matches we lost were mostly in five sets, and with those losses, we came away with something we can improve on for future matches. I’m very happy with the great team effort.”

– Last year, you lost in the final against Brazil and took the silver medal. Do you think that you are able now to improve the result and to win the gold?

I think we could definitely take home the gold. I think everyone on our team is taking it match by match. The final 6 this year is really impressive so it will be tough. However, if we focus on every match and don’t get ahead of ourselves, we have a very good shot at winning.”

– Your rivals in Pool K will be Serbia and Italy – What do you think about these opponents?

Serbia and Italy are both great teams! They are tough opponents and I’m very excited to be able to compete against them. It will be hard but everyone is excited.”

– Who is the favorite for winning the World Grand Prix 2017 from your point of view?

USA is my pick to win of course.”

– After a season in Japan, you are going to play for the first time in Italy. What are your expectations in Serie A1?

I’m very excited to play in Italy. I’m expecting to have to go and play really high level volleyball every day. I’m going to miss Japan but I’m excited for what Italy has in store. And I get to play with my teammate Micha so I’m looking forward to that too,” says Tori Dixon, at the end of the interview for WorldofVolley.
