Lausanne, Switzerland, September 21, 2020 - Yuki Ishikawa made his debut with Japan’s national team at the 2014 Asian Games, at the young age of 18. His outstanding court sense, athleticism and refined technique catapulted him into the volleyball limelight and secured his place as one of the most dependable players in the Japanese squad.
At 192 centimetres tall, Ishikawa is smaller than many players in his position, but his exceptional leaping ability and punchy spiking regularly confound opposing defenders.
At the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League, he was among the top scorers in the preliminary round, collecting 193 markers. He led Japan in scoring on five occasions, including his 28-point top scoring performance against Argentina.
