Wacu to realise dream in France

22 August 2014, 21:01

Nairobi - Volleyball star Jane Wacu will achieve a lifelong ambition this weekend when she heads to France to play professionally.

The Kenya women's volleyball player had trials with Rue Des Platanes, Hernes and Chamalieres earlier this year, but she has settled on the latter and will be teaming up with her team-mates ahead of the new season, which kicks off in September.

"This is a dream come true because I have always wanted to play professional volleyball. I am happy to join Chamalieres but I wouldn’t have minded joining the three other clubs," she told the-star.co.ke.

"I am glad I impressed them (Chamalieres). This is a sign of good things to come not only for me but also the upcoming players. This is an opportunity of my life time and I will do my best to prove to them that they made the right choice."

Despite signing a "very good" contract with the French club, Wacu vowed that she won't turn her back on the national team.

"I will play for the side for one year and they are giving me a good offer which I can’t turn down," she said.

"Like any other player who is playing professional sport outside the country, I am still a Kenyan and I will always avail myself for national duties if called upon."
