  6. 6. Ingvars Ozoliņš• He has been living in Ropaži for almost twenty-five years.• Before service in the army he played volleyball professionally.• During the service in the army he injured his knee and for many years he was not allowed to jump on it. So he had to leave active volleyball playing.
  7. 7. • When he returned from the army in 1989 he was asked to consult the new sitting voleyball team. He agreed and soon joined the team as an instructor and also as a player.• In 1989 the Latvian team won the bronze medals in the USSR championship. Ingvars was among the players.
  8. 8. • He played sitting volleyball for nine years. He took part in many international tournaments.• Unluckily, he lost all his photos, diplomas, medals, documents during the fire in his house some years ago.
