First look at Logan in Unilever's Monday practice

Logan was impressed with the amount of journalists that were present today to see her and the popularity of volleyball in Brazil.
Logan: "Ten years ago I had my first experience in Brazil. A lot has changed. I changed also, people change in ten years. Volleyball is even stronger in Brazil now. You pass by the beach and get impressed with the number of people practicing this sport. With no doubt it is the second favorite sport in the country."
Logan added: "I love Rio. I have many friends here. It is very comfortable for me to have come to play here in the city. In 2006 I came to visit, but it was fast, and now I will get to know it better. Volleyball is very strong, it is the Olympic City and has a very strong league."

Bernadinho: Logan is a great player. She has many functions, will not be the highest scorer, the highlight will be in helping the team's defensive system, passing along Fabizinha. She will give consistency in the pass in the team.
Fabi: A player very technical, that every team would like to have a player like that, has all the basics as well. The expectation is great to be see her training with us. We know that she has played in several countries, has a sense of Portuguese, played in Brazil 11 years ago, and everyone is very eager to see her wearing the shirt of Unilever.
Thanks to Camila for help in the translation.
