Ngapeth's 180-degree attack in Rio 2016 highlights


Earvin Ngapeth celebrates a point with teammate Kevin Tillie in France's match against Brazil at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Lausanne, Switzerland, November 30, 2016 - Even three months after the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the excitement of it all remains intense and the memories of the achievements of some of volleyball's finest still linger on.

France may have crashed out of pool play in the men's tournament, after failing to make it to the top four in their 'Pool of Death', but the antics of Earvin Ngapeth made it to the highlights of Rio 2016 as compiled by the International Olympic Committee.

It was his signature 180-degree attack in the match against Brazil at the Maracanazinho which earned him the distinction.

Ngapeth, 25, born in France with Cameroonian roots, continues this season for the third year running with Azimut Modena in Italy's UnipolSai Superleague - currently in third place in the standings in their quest to defend the title.
