The U.S. libero Dustin Watten has been crossed out from the list of the players that will be representing USA at the Olympic Games in Rio. He received a lot of messages…

Thanks everyone for all the messages! I didn’t expect to be back in Cali so early but the decision was the correct one and I believe it’s the best to only keep the 12 slated for Rio traveling for World League. My goal for the beginning of the quad in 2012 was to work with purpose and passion to find a better self each and every day and to help push the team whatever way I could so that USA would be on top of the podium in 2016 whether I was with them or not! I’m so thankful of the opportunity for this amazing journey and I know the 12 selected will give us the best chance to take gold in Rio.  Again, I appreciate all the messages but if you are considering writing me, I urge you rather to congratulate one of the 12 guys for their commitment, sacrifice and the work they have put it throughout the last 4 years. The next month and a half will be extremely challenging for them and I hope we can give them the love, energy and support to help them achieve their goal as Olympic champions. If you know me, this is just the beginning, I’m just getting started” says Watten.
