Osaka, Japan, November 25, 2011 – Young Iranian attacker Pourya Fayazi never imagined to play on the same court as Olympic gold medallist Ivan Miljkovic. But Iran’s excellent performance in the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Cup has put them in the spotlight.

In the past, Fayazi would only watch the biggest volleyball stars on television but his overwhelming presence in their victories against Poland, Argentina and Miljkovic’s team, Serbia, even exceeded his expectations as a player. 

Fayazi got his first break when he was 11 years old when a coach invited him to play for the school. He then represented Iran in the FIVB Boys’ Youth World Championship in Argentina and the FIVB Men’s Junior World Championship in Brazil. 

Although he was not part of the Iranian team that won the Asian Championship, he got his biggest break when Julio Velasco invited him to play for the senior team in the FIVB World Cup. 

His playing wisdom complements his energy on the court – with a fitting mentality that Velasco desires to have with his new team. The young player is truly deserving of a spot in the starting six. 

Fayazi’s World Cup experience playing with the best players may have just begun but he will exploit it to intensify his good energy.
