About the Cameroon team
Cameroon is one of the rising nations in women’s volleyball. In recent years, this Central African team has celebrated a series of successes. After their first appearance at the 2016 Olympic Games, Cameroon celebrated their debut in the FIVB World Volleyball Grand Prix and made history with their first ever title at the African Women’s Volleyball Championship.
As a result, the Cameroonian women have booked their tickets for their third FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship in Japan from 29 September to 20 October.
And the Cameroonian team is ready to face the titans of international women’s volleyball. In order to learn from the best players of Jean René Akono’s team, many veteran players have tried their luck in the European leagues. This is the case of Captain Christelle Tchoudjang, Stepahnie Fotso Mogoung, Abdoulkarim Fawziya. The three veterans have proven themselves in the French team VBC Chamalières in the “Lige A Féminine”, the highest league in France. Young aspirants like Raissa Nasser and Laetitia Crescence Moma Bassoko have followed in the footsteps of their compatriots and are earning their place in the French leagues.
The Cameroonian women will leave nothing to chance in their grand debut at the Montreux Volley Masters as they prepare for the challenges of the most prestigious women’s volleyball invitational tournament as well as the FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship in a training camp in France since July and until September.
The Lionesses are ready to do anything to challenge the titans of international women’s volleyball and represent Africa properly. They are waiting for you!
