    Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex Celebrates Its One Millionth Athlete

    Thirteen-Year-Old Desirre Wilkerson of Louisville, Ky., Honored in Special Ceremony at AAU Jr. National Volleyball Championships in Orlando

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Eight-and-a-half years and more than a thousand events since Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex officially opened on March 28, 1997, the 220-acre sports complex at Walt Disney World Resort welcomed its One Millionth Athlete on Monday. Desirre Wilkerson (Louisville, Ky.), a 13-year-old girls' volleyball player from the Kentucky Indiana Volleyball Academy (KIVA), was officially honored as the One Millionth Athlete.

    Wilkerson and her teammates from the KIVA Red 13-and-Under girls' volleyball squad participated in a morning ceremony at registration for the 32nd Annual AAU Junior Volleyball National Championships. When the team arrived at the sports complex, they were greeted by representatives of Disney Sports Attractions, including former National Football League players Reggie Williams and Kellen Winslow, the vice president and director of planning & new event development, respectively. Amateur Athletic Union President/CEO Bobby Dodd and AAU National Volleyball Chair Roger Goudy also participated, along with former U.S. Women's Basketball Olympian and WNBA player Cynthia Cooper, who was already visiting the Disney resort and agreed to be part of the festivities.

    As the One Millionth Athlete at Disney's Wide World of Sports, Wilkerson received a special globe-shaped trophy. She and her teammates also received One Millionth Athlete t-shirts and picture frames to commemorate the occasion. The nine-player girls' squad then helped unveil a special "One Million Athletes" banner, which was raised to the rafters of the Milk House, the 5,500-seat indoor arena at the sports complex which hosts this week's AAU Junior National Volleyball Championship (June 13-19) and many other Disney Sports events throughout the year.
