The German Men’s volleyball club United Volleys Rheinmain contracted a prospect player from Japan.


A 21-year-old opposite Issei Otake came to United Volleys from the Chuo University, who did not completely lost the right on him as he will return to play for them in the university championship (All Japan Intercollegiate Volleyball Championship) in December. He came to the club to replace Australian Mitchell Tulley, who had to terminate the contract to return to his home country and will take a break from a professional volleyball.

Ottake was one of the key players of the Japanese National Team in their highly successful 2017 FIVB World League campaign, which ended with a defeat in the Group 2 finals to Slovenia.

He belongs to a volleyball family: his older sister Riho is also a national team player, while his father Hideyuki competed in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

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
