Rennes Volley 35, the French Men’s Volleyball Championship Ligue A side, engaged a medical joker for the 2017/18.


Rennes joined GFC Ajaccio Volley-Ball in hiring a medical joker already at the very beginning of the season.

Since they remained without an American outside hitter Gregory Petty for a long time due to a knee injury, which he sustained in the Ligue A opener against Paris Volley, and having Emmanuel Ragondet just recovered from injury, Rennes turned to finding a new solution for this position in the transfer market.

Their choice has fallen on the Czech player Kamil Baránek who was a free agent after parting ways with Paris Volley at the end of the last season. A 34-year-old outside hitter had a lot of success while playing in France in the last few season as he won two national titles in a row with Tours Volley-Ball, in 2013 and 2014.

Baránek should be able to make his debut for Rennes in the Ligue A encounter against Tourcoing Volley-Ball, this Saturday, and help his new club improve a 0-3 record.

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
