Video: Stacy Sykora's Vision Training

By November 3, 2011

Stacy Sykora Vision Training Video

In the coming months, I will be adding a video element to the site. Often it is so much better to see than to read when it comes to our sport. Last month, I spent some time with USA Volleyball's Stacy Sykora, as she works to restore her vision after a bus accident left her in a three-day coma back in April.

Stacy's body is fine, but she is working hard to recover her complete peripheral vision which she desperately needs to have as a libero. I had planned to have this video up earlier, but due to some technical difficulties, it is just going up today.

So take a look at the article to read about what Stacy is doing to get back to her old ways and watch the video of Stacy at her vision training to see it for yourself. You can also read the transcript of the video. Keep a look out for more video subjects coming up as well and send in your ideas for future subjects which will cover everything from instruction to volleyball news.

Stacy was inspiring before the accident and she’s even more so today. We’re pulling for her and cheering for her from Colorado. Way to go Stacy . . . you’re a true champion!
