Congratulations!

Justine Wong-Orantes is a US women’s national team libero from California. Her mother is a Filipino-Chinese, married to a Mexican father.

“It all began in 2003 at Mizuno Long Beach when she was in 3rd grade and 18 years later we have a whole village to thank that helped raise her: coached, taught, drove, yelled, kicked her out of the gym (you know who you are 😉), encouraged, motivated, love, supported, played with you and watched you played in every major volleyball event,” recalled her mother Winne Wong on her Instagram post.

Being a first time Olympian and US Women’s National Team member since 2016, the decorated athlete made it by playing professionally in Germany, winning the NCAA DI title and two-time AVCA First Team All-American.
