Last season’s play-off semifinalists Sesc RJ triumphantly started the new season in the Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship.


Sesc RJ achieved the straight-set win on the road against the Superliga Masculina debutants América Vôlei in the first round of the new season: 3-0 (25-14, 25-19, 26-24). The team that was established this summer by merging with Montes Claros Vôlei was a worthy opponent to the title favorites only in the third set, but that is when the strength and experience of the two Olympic champions from Sesc emerged. Maurício Borges and Wallace Souza did not have a noticeable attack success rate in the match, 29% and 38% respectively, but were on the high level when it mattered the most.

Gustavo Bonatto “Gustavão“ top-scored for Sesc with 13 points, including 5 kill blocks, while Argentinean Jan Martínez made 90% reception (10 digs, 90% excellent). Renan Moralez scored 11 points for América.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
