Title: "A Tale of Training for the Olympics & Working with Your Spouse"
Description: Join us for our April luncheon where Chris and Jen Tamas will be our speakers. Chris is the University of Illinois Head Volleyball Coach and he will be joined by his fellow coach and wife, Jen Tamas. Learn about what it would be like to work with your spouse everyday in a competitive environment and hear about their time training for the Olympics, together. This past season, they took the Fighting Illini to the Sweet 16 in their first year coaching at Illinois after the team did not make the tournament the year before.
Chris Tamas spent 4 years with the U.S. Men's National Team (1999, 2003, 2005-06). A training camp invitee for the U.S. squad that captured the 2008 Olympic gold medal, Tamas also helped U.S. teams to silver at the 2005 World Grand Champions Cup in Japan and, as a setter, to a gold at the 2006 NORCECA Championships in Mexicali, Mexico. As a professional, Tamas competed for six years overseas in the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, Cyprus and Finland.
Jen Tamas was a four-time All-American middle blocker at Pacific (2000-03) and silver medalist with the United States at the 2008 Summer Olympics. She played professionally for eight years in Japan, Italy, Russia, Azerbaijan and Puerto Rico and was the U.S. Women's National Team captain for four years.
