Going out with a bang
At 40 years of age, Sergey Tetyukhin is a living legend of volleyball.
The Russian's record for both club and country speaks for itself: 2 World Cups (1999, 2011), a World League title (2002) and 4 Champions League winners' medals (2003, 2004, 2008 and 2014). He has also found time to squeeze in 10 Russian Championships.
Tetyukhin's experience has seen him return to the national side as Russia prepare to defend their Olympic volleyball crown. The outside hitter (1.97m, 89kg) has an unparalleled record at the Games: gold in 2012, silver in 2000 and bronze in 2004 and 2008. And the doyen of Russian volleyball has every intention of rounding out his stellar career with more Olympic glory in Rio.
