Highly upsetting news comes from the preparations of Brazil Women’s Volleyball national team for the 2019 Nations League.


 

Bruna Honório, who less than a month ago won the Brazilian Championship title with Itambé Minas, was dismissed from Brazil national team as she failed medical tests. The examinations showed that a 29-year-old opposite hitter had atrial myxoma, a tumor in the atrium of the heart. Minas did not publish which heart condition was revealed when their player underwent medical tests, but media in the country reported it was a cardiac tumor.

As the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League will begin on May 21, the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) and Minas decided that Bruna Honório should return to the club for further evaluations with the specialist. This, of course, means that she will miss the international season. 

Bruna Honório joined a rather large group of players who will not be able to compete with Brazil national team this year in which “Seleção” will have four commitments: the FIVB Nations League, South American Championship, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Qualifications, and FIVB World Cup. Other players are Adenízia, Thaísa, Camila Brait, Gabi Cândido, Tassia, Drussyla, and Dani Lins.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
