Some people go to the beaches of Hawaii or to the warmth of the Caribbean for a vacation – not Greg. IMG Guide Greg Vernovage is taking a small break from the mountains to help his friends over at USA Volleyball at the World Championships in Italy over the next few weeks.
Before guiding, Greg played volleyball in college and professionally in Europe. After his playing days were over Greg began coaching, culminating by coaching the USA Men’s Beach Volleyball Team to a Gold Medal in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
Thus far the Team USA is rolling along in their warm-up matches and is currently in Reggio Calabria, where they will play Mexico, Argentina, and Venezuela.
After the World Championships Greg will jump right back into things at IMG with trips to Ecuador, Vinson and Kilimanjaro on the schedule this winter.
IMG wishes Greg & Team USA all the best!
