Richard Beese is a great fan of Volleyball game. Being a sports lover He always loves to watch as well as play volleyball game. This game is fast-moving and very exciting that combines strength and strategy together to achieve success.
Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. They have to score points by hitting the ball on to the court of the opposing side. To prevent this, a player on the opposing team bats the ball up and toward a teammate before it touches the court surface. A team is allowed only three touches of the ball before it must be returned over the net. Each team tries to score more points to win the game. All this process happens under some organized rules. According to the rules, the ball is usually played with the hands or arms. In Volleyball game players can also legally strike or push the ball with any part of the body. With time this game has become very famous. It has been a part of the official program of the Summer Olympic Games since 1964.
Richard Beese describes about the changes brought into the volleyball game with the passage of time. The 2000 Olympics introduced a new rule regarding volleyball international competition. According to the new rule, one change created the libero. The libero is a player on each team who serves as a defensive specialist. For different appearance, the libero wears a different color from the rest of the team. This player is not allowed to serve or rotate to the front line. Another important rule change allowed the defensive side to score, whereas formerly only the serving team was awarded points.
In 1969, A four-year cycle of international volleyball events was began that was recommended by the FIVB, to be held in the year following the Olympic Games; the second year is the World Championships; in the third the regional events are held; and in the fourth year the Olympic Games. Richard Beese suggests that to be a good volleyball player, one should be in a very good physical condition. There should be a continuous group workout session. A person should be capable to run a mile in less than eight minutes to be an enthusiastic athlete.
Richard Beese feels inspired by the game Volleyball. He considers it as one of the most interactive games going. It is a game of intuition and imagination. Teamwork is a key to success. A single athlete alone cannot do anything to succeed. The will to win is more important than the skill to win. Richard Beese loves this quote “The key is not the “will to win”—everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important”. This quote says it all regarding success in each and every field.
