Joanne Morgan graduated from Heriot-Watt University in 2006 with a degree in civil engineering and put her career on hold to concentrate on London 2012.
Volleyball hardly registered where she went to school, with Morgan taking up the sport aged 15 with junior side East Lothian Falcons.
Her volleyball hero is Japanese setter Yoshie Takeshita, whose small stature proves to Morgan that you don’t have to be very tall to play the sport. She is also inspired by Takeshita’s extremely fast hands.
