Each Thursday we want to put the spotlight on a person involved with goalball – from players, officials to coaches, or anyone!
We want to use our online platforms so the Goalball Family can get to know each other a bit better ahead of getting back on the court and playing our sport again!
This week we caught up with Sammie Korosi!
What club do you play for or coach?
I play for Lancashire Lions.
How did you discover goalball?
I found out about goalball from my mom, I started playing a little bit back in Canada, but I’ve had more opportunities to play in the UK.
Is there a particular song, artist, or genre that you listen to before a tournament to get in the mood? Or anything you’re loving at the moment?
Depends on the day but I always like a bit of Queen and AJR.
Do you have any pre-game superstitions or rituals?
Mostly just listening to music and maybe a sneaky coffee.
Do you have a favourite post-match meal?
If I don’t have to cook it, I don’t mind!
Which goalball player do you admire the most and why?
I think I’d have to say my teammates. I really admire them all and they have all been so welcoming and encouraging.
Outside of goalball, what other hobbies/sports do you do?
I play blind baseball. Aside from sports I love painting and playing music.
Finally, what place, anywhere in the world, is on your bucket list to visit and why?
I would really love to go to Japan or Australia.
