Kisy sees rivals as numbers to ease pressure on Worlds debut | volleyball

The rise was meteoric. After spending the season on the bench at Minas, Kisy found himself on the court in the game that secured the Superliga title. The outstanding trophy of the match earned him not only the call-up, but the title in the Brazilian team. The sudden change could scare any 22-year-old girl, but any girl couldn’t achieve such a revolution in the year. And in order not to feel the weight of the yellow green shirt in the campaign for the unprecedented title of the World Cup, the Brazilian opposite has adopted the method of erasing the rivals.

– I don’t study people, I go by the shirt number. Many players have a history in volleyball and talking about the name can be impressive. So I prefer to study by number. In my notebook, they are all numbers. I put that the nine does more diagonally, the number five attacks more closed. It gets easier. There is already a lot of external and internal pressure, the more you can find ways to ease the pressure, the better – explained the player.

And the steps in volleyball are recent, but taken with security and confidence. His career began in 2013, at São Caetano, where he remained until 2019. In 2020, the opposite moved to Barueri, the team of coach José Roberto Guimarães. He gained prominence on the national scene and, in the last season of the Superliga, Kisy went to Minas.

Over the months, Kisy had Sheilla by her side. One of the greatest opponents in volleyball history, the two-time Olympic champion pulled the young player into her tutelage and prepared her for the decisive moment. Due to the injury of American Dani Cuttino, Kisy was raised to the starting position in the Superliga final. But the opposite managed to deal with the nervousness, took responsibility, secured the third title of Minas and was elected the best player of the decision.

The performance earned him the call-up to the Brazilian national team. And it didn’t take long for Kisy to win the team’s title. Already betting on the method of erasing rivals, the opposite decided several games for Brazil in the League of Nations and gained strength in the position for the World Cup.

– She has a lot to grow, to evolve. She wants it, and that’s the main thing. Kisy wants this position of being the starting opposite of the selection, wants to be a highlight. And I see her talking, she wants to help Brazil win a World Cup and another Olympic medal. So, she will always run after and, for sure, will have the support of everyone – said Sheilla, who has been following the team’s training as a development mentor.

“The goal is to make history”

Brazil goes to the World Cup in search of an unprecedented title. The team that travels to Holland is renewed, with only a few remnants of the Tokyo Olympics, but already reaping good results. In the Nations League, the young team led by coach José Roberto Guimarães had a convincing campaign, won against strong opponents and took silver in the final against Italy. The expectation at the Worlds is to go one step higher.

– The goal is to make history. We’re not just preparing for the Worlds, it’s an Olympic cycle. So, that’s what we have to focus on, in the process – said Kisy.
