ONICO Warszawa remained without one of their key players for the 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinals!


Due to a back injury, Bartosz Kurek finished the season! It means that a famous opposite hitter will not be able to help his teammates in the Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoff semifinals against Jastrzębski Węgiel which starts today.

Kurek has been struggling with the pain for a while. The medical tests have shown that it requires urgent treatment to prevent the injury from deepening which would cause risk to the athlete’s health.

As some media in Poland reported, ONICO are close to signing the best scorer of the national league Maciej Muzaj from Trefl Gdańsk (still has a valid contract with the club) as Kurek’s replacement. The PlusLiga rules allow special kinds of transfers outside the transfer window which is called the medical joker.

Bartosz Kurek had a surgery today. All went well but he won't be able to play for several months. Miss him already.. Get well soon, Bartosz!

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
