Blessed, you go into a team very close-knit which has some great motivations and ambitions:
“The friendship between these girls and the fact that they are ready to give their maximum every time they set foot in the field, you could immediately upon entering at a Time to see the games. They exude the true fun of face the challenge even harder and the desire to tackle it as a team. I am a person that loves the environment of the gym, and hate the chatter, and then, I hope to integrate myself well within this team, which, fortunately, in the part I already know”.
After so many years Liverani InVolley Lugo, the selection of up to category a few kilometers away:
“It’s not easy to explain, Lugo has accompanied me throughout my life pallavolistica and this year there has been a series of coincidences that led me to leave the “nest”. Maybe I should do it before, maybe not, but anyway I’m very happy with the choice I made. The category is definitely a challenge that will cause me to exit the comfort zone, I hope I live up to that and certainly I will give the maximum”.
What do you consider your main features that have convinced the technical staff of imola to focus on you?
“I have many technical aspects to improve, I am aware of it. But, surely, when I entered the field do the soul, both technically and morally and I hope that this will be received. I think that my relationship with the staff of the Clai is born especially to see how far I can get: I, personally, think that I have much to learn and I hope not to disappoint the expectations”.
One group, the Clai Imola, that you know already. What has influenced on your decision?
“Well, certainly the idea of having people in the gym, that I already know has helped things. However, they are the one that takes place easily and, above all, very accommodating. I would go well in a new team. The first step of the exchange the company is passed, we say”.
The first year in the B1 series to you: what are your goals in this pre-season?
“The first year in B1, the first year away from home! It’s all a bet. At the moment I will just stay in step with the advice of Monica [Risaliti, the trainer and athletic Clai, ed], and I try to prepare myself to meet the challenges of the preparation. I have to get to sustain a pace of training that are not used to it. Then we’ll think about the championship: I do not know but I am sure that we will do our best to deal with it the best.”
Very satisfied, coach Manuel Turrini:
“With Benedetta Rizzo, we know each other for many years. We had tried a couple of years ago to convince her, but it probably was not the right time.
It is a very, very strong in series with B2 and must be put to the test in B1, in a context in which, objectively, are not well known by anyone and that will be a surprise, a little’ for all of us.
I believe that she has certainly great room for improvement and I think it can come out very well.
And very talented, with the ability to jump incredible”.
