“I feel very honoured with this appointment,” Blangé said. “The plans prepared by the Dutch and Belgian Volleyball Federations as well as by Shivers, the company we will be working with, feature all the ingredients to make a memorable tournament out of this Championship. I am confident that everything will be fine and the outcome will be good. We are very committed to deliver a great Volleyball festival,” he continued.
Blangé is a four-time Olympian who first debuted at Seoul 1988 before his next appearances followed in 1992 (Barcelona), 1996 (Atlanta) and 2000 (Sydney). His gold-medal winning performance at the Centennial Games in Atlanta was chosen as “Sports Moment of the Century” by the Dutch audience. After retiring from competitive sport, Blangé – who spent most of his career in Italy – has been active as a coach, heading both club teams as well as the Dutch national team.
