The premature ending of the club volleyball season in Brazil due to coronavirus pandemic forced some clubs to start their activities in the transfer market for the next season.


According to Bruno Voloch from Estadão Esportes, the unofficial Superliga Feminina runners-up Itambé Minas intensified actions for bringing in a powerful player on the position of the opposite hitter.

The club world champions aim the best scorer of the Italian side Zanetti Bergamo (315 points), Malwina Smarzek. But, since two more clubs in Brazil (names unknown yet) showed intense interest in the Polish player, Minas turned their attention to the 2019 U.S. Player of the Year, Andrea Drews, who finished the season as the MVP of the Japanese Championship.

Either way, it seems that the Belo Horizonte team will certainly part ways with at least one opposite hitter from the current roster - Sheilla Castro or Bruna Honório, but will extend with middle blocker Thaísa.

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

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.

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
