Berglind Gígja Jónsdóttir ( bytes)I started training volleyball when I was 6 years old. When I was 13 years old me and my partner Elísabet decided to start playing beach-volleyball during the summer for fun, but soon we started training for real. My goal is to qualify for Olympics 2020. My hobbies are volleyball indoors and being with my friends and family. My favorite memory is all my victories, but specially the Nordic Championships title. My favorite sports memory is when I saw the Icelandic handball team win silver at 2008 Olympics and when I watched my favorite beach-volleyball team win gold at Olympics 2012.

The main achievement

  • Icelandic Champion 2012 and 2013
  • Nordic Champion u-19 2013
