Two players who competed with the Russian youth national teams recently joined the Bulgarian Men’s Volleyball Championship bronze medalists Montana Volley.

 

An 18-year-old setter Konstantin Abaev and a 19-year-old opposite Kirill Klets left the youth team of Lokomotiv Novosibirsk from Russia to pursue the career in the Bulgarian top division.

Both players represented Russia in the FIVB World Championship this summer in their age category. Abaev was a member of the U19 and U21 national team, while Klets competed with the U21 and U23 national team.

Interestingly, the coach of the senior team of Lokomotiv, a club from whom these two youngsters moved to Montana, is the Bulgarian Plamen Konstantinov so, perhaps he convinced the officials of the Russian club to send Abaev and Klets to his home country to play.

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
