The Estonian Men’s Volleyball champions Selver Tallinn strengthened their roster with a receiver from the Belgian league.

 

A 26-year-old receiver Taavi Nõmmistu returned to his homeland as he moved from the Belgian runners-up Noliko Maaseik to Selver with whom he will compete in the qualifications for the 2018 CEV Champions League.

Earlier, Selver engaged the new coach. A 39-year-old Latvian Austris Štāls took over the club whose jersey he has worn as a player in the 2009/2010 season. He has retired from professional volleyball a couple of years ago and turned to playing beach volleyball on the highest level – playing the World Tour. Štāls replaced a domestic coach Rainer Vassiljev.

As for the contract extensions, these players will continue to defend the colors of Selver: a 23-year-old receiver Denis Losnikov, a 28-year-old setter Taunno Lipp, a 21-year-old opposite Oliver Orav, a 29-year-old middle blocker Reimo Rannar, a 18-year-old receiver Albert Hurt, a 17-year-old middle blocker Mihkel Varblane, a 19-year-old receiver Kevin Õun, and a 18-year-old opposite Siim Melles.

WCH 2018 W: The MVP award goes to Tijana Boskovic!

I thought the same based on performance in the final match, but then I check the official stats for setters, and Malinov is #1 while Ognjenovic is #6, https://japan2018.fivb.com/en/competition/statistics

However, it is completely ridiculous that Serbia beat Italy twice in World Championship and still 4 players from Italy (2nd place) are in dream team, 2 from China (3rd place) and only 1 from Serbia (1st place) Reply

What about maja, I think she deserved it more than the other setter, malinov was taken out of the games several times it doesn't make sense. Reply

How to qualify for the Olympic Games 2020 volleyball tournament? One place already guaranteed!

In Women's competition Netherlands (6) will face Italy (7), Mexico (18) and Azerbaijan (19). Very strange to see the numbers 2 and 4 of the WCH in the same poule. Reply
