GSSE Mourn Death Of San Marino Athlete

NICOSIA, 23 May 2009 - The Small States of Europe movement is in mourning, followingthe tragic death of the San Marino Volleyball team captain, Alessandro Casadei, just a few days before the opening of the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe. The 36-year-old player, who was very familiar and popular among the members of all other teams of the Games, died tragically in an accident with his motorbike.

The Olympic Committee of San Marino contacted the Organizing Committee of the XIII GSSE with the sad news and requesting that a minute of silence be held before every match of San Marino. Additionally, all players of San Marino will be wearing a black armband. Both requests were immediately accepted by CYPRUS 2009.

The Cyprus Olympic Committee and the Cyprus Volleyball Federation have sent letters of condolences to both the Olympic Committee of San Marino and to the player's family.

Casadei was the starting setter of the National team of San Marino the last few years.
