VINTAGE VOLLEYBALL: Historical World Championship 1970 for Germany and Bulgaria (VIDEO)

1132 0

After 48 years Bulgaria will host the FIVB World Championship and everyone hope that they will repeat the success from 1970 and play in the final of the competition.

Bulgaria last hosted the World Championships in 1970 and that year they played in the final against East Germany. After five sets the opponents won 3-2 (15-11, 13-15, 15-7, 4-15, 15-13) their first and only gold medal in the World Champ.

This Championship was historical for both teams because that was the only time that Germany and Bulgaria played in the final. 

From that year both National teams played twice the matches for the third place. Bulgaria won both their matches (1986 and 2006) while Germany took the medal 2014.

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

Nootsara can play with Kim Yeon Koung in Shanghai Team for next season. Reply

Is this the most controversial point in 2018 CEV Champions League…? (VIDEO)

It's because at the end of the day: the video challenge system is still HUMAN controlled. Some people are just blind... or biased...

This is just another embarrassment for the sport of volleyball. Even with replay technology, they still somehow manage to mess things up.

And to make things worse, the referee had the nerve to give them a red card for outrage that was LEGITIMATE. Stubborn referee! Even if Lokomotiv will lose the match in the end, I'm sure they would have preferred that loss instead of being cheated out of a point. Reply

If Tomkom is kept for next season (though that seems unlikely in my opinion). Fenerbache should think of getting one of her younger NT member as a receiver/wing spiker back up. Even though they aren't as tall as their European counter part, they can receive well and attack too. I'm sure they would be cheaper to higher than most other European options or are they? lol...And they already have a connection with Nootsara, so maybe they can play some fast balls every now and then to score a few quick points too.
