After nine years of playing for national team of Canada, Graham Vigrass announces his retirement.
His last appearance for the national team was in 2021 at the Tokyo Olympics, finishing eighth.
“Playing for Team Canada and competing in the Olympics was always a dream of mine growing up,” he said.
As a member of the Canadian national team, he was awarded as the Best Middle Blocker in the 2017 World League and the Best Blocker in the 2019 VNL.
He started his international club career in France in the 2013/2014, and later played in Tunisia, Turkey, Germany and Poland.
He is the second member of the 2020 Olympic team to officially retire from the men’s national team after Tokyo. Prior to him in November, also team captain Gord Perrin announced his retirement.
This season, Graham Vigrass is playing in Turkey and is fighting with his team, regular season winners Halkbank Ankara, in the playoffs for advancing to the finals. In a clash with another Turkish powerhouse, Arkas Spor, the semifinal series is currently tied, and the decisive match will be played on April 24 in Ankara.
