Besides investing huge effort on the court, the French and Italian outside hitters are forced to do the same outside court, as well.

Obviously, our society still has racist prejudices. Volleyball is not an exception, at least if we speak about the fans.

Recent example of racial slurs directed to Ngapeth on social networks united him and Juantorena. Being hugged, they sent a message to the world after the end of Eurovolley 2015 which was posted on Juantorena’s Instagram profile.

“No to racism… These medals are a symbol of equality… Racism still exists, let us unite against it. Knock down all prejudices … NO, NO, NO,” the Cuban-born player wrote.
