In only one month, the Czech Women’s volleyball titleholders VK Prostějov have acquired and parted ways with the same player. But, it was not their fault...

 

An 18-year-old Cuban middle blocker Heidy Casanova has agreed to terms with the Czech champions Prostějov, a month ago, coming from a club in her home country La Habana. But, two weeks ago, she decided, along with one of her teammates from the Cuban NT, not to return home after the FIVB U23 World Championship in Slovenia, but to stay in this country and find a new club there.

It forced Prostějov management to seek for the replacement for Casanova and the choice has fallen on the Slovakian player Gabriela Tomašeková, who did not play professional volleyball for a whole year. But, Tomašeková is familiar with the Czech league due to the fact that the last club for which she competed, so far, was Volejbal Přerov.

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

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
