Volleyball World Champ hungry for more wins

Two-time volleyball World Champion Yulia Merkulova says her ambitions are far from having been satisfied.

­The 2.02-meter-tall athlete helped the Russian women’s team end the season on the highest possible note by winning the World Championships in Japan, as they defeated principal rivals Brazil in the final on Sunday.

Merkulova has changed her club and is now targeting Europe’s top competition and gold at the London Olympics.

"I'd like to win the Champions League this season. That's why I left Kuban Krasnodar and joined Dynamo Moscow, to be able to win things like that. I also want to win the national championships and of course I dream of wining the Olympics," she told RT.
