    Ko Kyaw Din, who represented RIT and Burma, supposedly left for the USA.

    Other non-alumni who represented Burma include Ko Than Soe (3rd of 9 Wan brothers from St. Paul’s) and Ko Ohn Shein.

    Ko Aung Khin, Saw Edison and his brother Saw Orson represented RIT.

    Ko Aye Thein, Sa Maung Maung, Ko Myint Maung (Bu) and Saw Edison (all EP69) represented EE in the Inter Department tournament.

   There are rule changes over the years. In the early days, only the serving team can score. Later, any team (serving or defending) can score, but the game score was raised to 25 (or so).

   At UCC, the employers and some users played friendly matches. Ma Judy (Nwe Nwe Win) often joined the mostly men matches when there is a shortage of players.

We remember a documentary when Japan selected and trained tall and/or strong females with no [international] experience to compete in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Japan won the gold medal for Women’s Volleyball.
