The Serbian star Aleksandar Atanasijevic has been tested positive on Corona Virus, announces the website direktno.rs.


Fortunately for him, he has mild symptoms of this virus and he feels all right.

"I've been tested positive on COVID 19 CoronaVirus. I don't know where I picked it up. I am trying to recall all the situations and persons with whom I was in contact. I hope I didn't transmit the virus to anyone, especially my parents and friends. I am thinking of it now and I want to get out of this situation ASAP," confirms Atanasijevic for direktno.rs.

Aleksandar Atanasijevic was in Italy during difficult days when CoronaVirus was spreading rapidly, however, he didn't catch the virus. After coming to Serbia and after spending some days here, he was tested positive. 

"I have a mild temperature. Probably my knee surgery got me into this situation since my immune system became weaker after the surgery. In Perugia's hospital, I even had mild pneumonia. The doctors in Italy tested me five times and I was negative. When I decided to travel to Serbia, I was tested and was negative again. The doctors in Serbia have made examinations and they confirmed that everything is fine and sent me home for a two-week self-isolation. Obviously, we can't relax until this virus goes away..."

We wish Atanasijevic speedy recovery.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply

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...
