The Olympic Qualifier was an eye opener says Nwabuaku

Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC) player, Sharon Nwabuaku said the 2020 Olympic Qualifier opened her eyes to another level of volleyball.

The 2020 African Volleyball Olympic Qualifier was held in Cameroon last January.

The national team setter told www.aclsports.com that the experience gathered will help her improve her style of play.

She stated that the match between host, Cameroon and 2019 African Games Champion, Kenya was a cracker.

Nwabuaku said, “The 2020 African Olympic Qualifier was a wonderful experience because I got to watch more experienced teams and learn a thing or two from them. One of the games I found exciting and entertaining was the match between Kenya and Cameroon.

“I am glad I was there to see it watch both teams slug it out; It is my prayers that I get to watch some of these top teams play in order to learn more and also work on improving myself”.

Nwabuaku revealed that she started playing volleyball in secondary school as a spiker and eventually represented Delta state in the National Youth Games.

She stated that playing for NSCDC has helped her become a much more better player.

She said, “I started playing volleyball at a very early age and represented my secondary school as a spiker. I got selected and eventually represented Delta state at the 2013 National Youth Games in Ilorin winning gold medal.

“Few years later, I moved to Abuja and after playing volleyball for some months, I was converted to a setter because of my height when I played for NSCDC at the 2016 National Open Championship organized by Nigeria Customs Service.

“Since I started playing for NSCDC, I have always had a wonderful playing time. I am fortunate to be among some of the best players in country (men and women) and have learnt a lot from them”.

Sharon Nwabuaku won the 2019 Nigeria Volleyball Premier League with Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp.
