The Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship title holders Zenit Kazan are well known by having a fruitful Volleyball Academy.

 

Each season, Zenit give a chance to some of the foremost players from their youth team.

After adding the setter Loran Alekno, the son of the club coach Vladimir Alekno, to the senior team for the 2017/18, Zenit decided to do the same with the 20-year-old middle blocker Aleksey Kononov.

Kononov stood out in the recently held FIVB Men’s U21 World Championship in the Czech Republic, where his national team Russia claimed the bronze medal, while he was nominated for the ideal lineup of the tournament.

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
