Denis runs the sitting Volleyball at the London Paralympic Games
A retired Jersey geography teacher will be in charge of the sitting volleyball event at the Paralympic Games, which opens this evening.
Denis Le Breuilly founded the Jersey Volleyball Association and has a long track record as an international volleyball referee.
He was appointed as the Technical Delegate for Sitting Volleyball at the London Games by the International Paralympic Committee in 2010.
He is responsible for the delivery of the event, which includes ten men’s and eight women’s teams playing in a 10,000 seat arena.
Other responsibilities to date have included overseeing the qualifying events, including personally delivering a landmark event in Rwanda which ensured Paralympic Volleyball would have its first African team.
