Chris Colbert, taking part in a strength challengeEach Thursday we want to put the spotlight on a person involved with goalball – from players, officials to coaches, or anyone!

We want to use this opportunity where we have a bit more time on our hands to get to know you all a little bit better.

This week we caught up with Chris Colbert from RNC

How did you discover goalball?

I first discovered goalball when I attended RNC, and I really enjoyed it and stuck with it as I love a good competition.

Is there a particular song, artist or genre that you listen to before a tournament to get in the mood? Or anything you are loving at the moment?

Dance Monkey by Tones and I

Do you have any pre-game superstitions or rituals?

We have a team talk and get in the mood for the game. We then put our hands in together and shout ‘RNC!’

Do you have a favourite post-match meal?

I have some water and a breakfast bar.

Which goalball player do you admire the most and why?

Dan Roper, I look up to him because he gives good advice and he helps people out.

Outside of goalball, what other hobbies/sports do you do?

I like playing cricket, football and I also do strongman events.

Finally, what place, anywhere in the world, is on your bucket list to visit and why?

I would like to go to Dubai, because it is warm and a really nice place to go to.
