”For me, this is the first veteran prize in the age group of 40 years and older – said Igor Shulepov – I was asked to go to a tournament in Turin and i thought, why give up? We have to see how they live age volleyball players, learn what to expect in the near future.Well, even after 40 years volleyball players is not dying so I dont see why shouldn’t I keep playing”. Although Shulepov said he will keep on playing he did not say for how long, instead he revealed a glimpse of plans for the future – ” A moment will come when I wont be able to continue playing and when such a time has come, I will be happy to help the team as a coach”.
