Welcome to Logan Tom Fansite!


Did you know? (Olympic Edition #1)

When USA and South Korea met last night on the first day of Volleyball play, Logan was playing against a friend across the net. And after, Logan and Korean star Kim Yeon Koung gave each other a kiss on the cheek during post-match handshakes. They became friends while playing together at Fenerbahce the past year.

 

Here are a couple of pics that Yeon posted on Facebook last season

 

Good luck to Logan and Yeon for the rest of the tournament!

LONDON (July 28, 2012) – The U.S. Olympic Women’s Volleyball Team started its 2012 Olympic Games campaign by defeating Korea 25-19, 25-17, 20-25, 25-21 with a 15-1 block advantage on Saturday evening at Earls Court in London.

The U.S., ranked No. 1 in the world, continues Pool B competition on July 30 versus No. 2 Brazil at 4:45 p.m. local time (8:45 a.m. PT). Brazil opens the Olympic Games later tonight against Turkey in the final match of the day.

“We are obviously excited to open our pool with a win,” U.S. Olympic Women’s Volleyball Coach Hugh McCutcheon (Christchurch, New Zealand) said. “It was a very tough game and Korea made us work a lot. We did some things pretty well, but I have also seen room for improvement. Overall it was a good performance and I am evidently happy with the result because we have started with a win. The players responded well especially after dropping the third set and they turned it around in a very good way to finish it off in the fourth set.”

U.S. Women's National Volleyball Team Looking to Create a New Story

USA Coach Hugh McCutcheon:

 “Logan is a wonderful volleyball player, and I have said this before, she is the best volleyball IQ I have ever coached. She sees the game, she reads the game better than anyone else out there as a player. She is creative and has a lot of skill. 

One of the things that is really important for our group is that she is really involved in terms of her ability to lead this team and to be a great teammate to help those around her with all those years of experience. She has become a really positive influence on our younger players. 

We are really happy that Logan is still going. We are really happy she is on our team. Like many people on this team, she has a significant role and she is doing a great job for us.”

 “When you get to competing in the Olympic Games, having gone through it a couple times and having some success and having a feel for what works and doesn’t is an advantage. I don’t mean to suggest that this is algorithmic that you plug in A and get B. But I think there are some lessons learned that will apply in this campaign.”

 “I think we are capable of playing some really good volleyball when we are playing great. There are no easy matches. We don’t expect any easy matches. We are trying to win the biggest event of our quadrennial. The challenge is real and we embrace that challenge. We are ready to battle. We want to be here. We have worked hard to be here. We think we are playing our best volleyball of the quad.”

USA's Cynthia Barboza on The Net Live - trying the beach and comments on USA team

One of Logan's teammate from the national team, Cynthia Barboza, gave an interview to The NET LIVE. Cynthia joins the program around the 1:35:00 mark.

About USA women in London:

"I think they are going to kill it. They are going to absolutely crush it. I have nothing but complete confidence in the 12 girls who are going... honestly, in the 25 girls that were in the gym training the whole quad.

I think we have really stable ball control. We have a fantastic leader in Berg who runs a really complex offense. We have a really balanced set of hitters. Obviously with Destinee who can terminate on the right. We've got smart players like Logan and Jordan who put balls away out of system and in system. Our middles are frighteningly effective. Foluke and Christa are beasts. And then Nicole Davis rounds out our ball control, keeping us in system so we can do what we want to do.

I think that when we play our game... which is good solid USA volleyball.... kind of like playing good over time and playing great when the moment presents itself... I think that solid steady USA style, will trump any other team in the world right now.

Those are my girls, I've seen them more than anyone else. I believe in them. They're going to be great."
