JUHO LOOVEER: SELTSID, TEGUTSEGE!

AALE KASK-ONG, MEIE KODU

 

Sydney Eesti Spordi Klubi on juba ammu sulgenud uksed. Eesti Päevadel on sport vaeslapse rollis. Kõigest sellest hoolimata õnnestus vaid Balti Mängudeks kokku pandud meeskonnal võita lätlasi ja leedukaid, kes regulaarselt koos mängivad.

17. septembril Bankstowni spordiväljakule jõudsid eestlaskonda esindama nii
uued eestlased kui siin sündinud. Eesti meeskonna viis kokku üks mees – Juho
Looveer.

How did you get involved in organising the Estonian team for the
Baltic Games?

Juho Looveer: I have been involved in Volleyball in Sydney for over 40 years,
and am well known by Latvians and Lithuanians who play Volleyball.

In 2010, a Latvian friend told me that Baltic games were on and said that
Estonians had no teams; he asked if I was interested in organising some teams. I
said Yes.

I did ask Sydney Eesti Selts if there was still a Sydney Eesti Spordi Klubi
(SESK) in existence – that’s where I started playing in 1968; they said no, and
no-one from Selts Committee had time to organise anything for sports, so I could
go ahead.
