Danzell gets ticket to ride

A LAST-MINUTE arrangement has resulted in middle player Damien Danzell travelling to Suriname with the Barbados team for the 13th Caribbean Volleyball Championships.Work commitments would have kept Danzell out of the tour, but the high jumping player sacrificed his vacation time to get permission to attend the games for his country.The squad left the island for Friday nightin an upbeat mood, but departed with technical director from the Regional Development Centre Dan Gieleanu.Gieleanu could not travel with the team as he did not possess a visa which was necessary for people travelling on an American or European passport.  Enough timeGirleanu is expected to travel to Trinidad and Tobago on Monday in order to secure the visa and go on to Suriname with enough time before the teams take to the court.Barbados’ volleyballers have returned thrice as double crown champions of CVC – 1993 from Trinidad, 1994 from the Bahamas and 2004 from Trinidad. The decline of the women’s team and the development of Trinidad and Tobago will be a challenge for our girls.  The men’s team is relatively weakened and will be hardpressed to recapture the crown which they had held for ten editions in succession.
