Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, August 9, 2016 – Described by Wikipedia as an author, painter, comic creator, and journalist, Brazil’s celebrated and much revered Ziraldo Alves Pinto paid an impromptu visit to the Volleyball House on Tuesday.
The 84-year-old, known to the public as Ziraldo, was not the only non-sporting personality to come by the Volleyball House in recent days.
The Volleyball House also received a visit from Rodrigo Hilbert, a well know Brazilian television personality and host of a popular cooking show.
Following on from his appearance on the Today Show with Matt Lauer, Randy Stoklos got into the carnival spirit with the Blocco musicians who led the people from the beach volleyball stadium to the Copa Courts for more fun in the sand.
Also in the house today was Marcio Sicolli who has served as the coach for two back-to-back Olympic Games, first in 2012 with Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor and again in 2016 with Walsh Jennings and April Ross.
