The Brazilian women’s volleyball club Sesi Vôlei Bauru made quite a good job of composing the roster for the next season.


Bauru persuaded their top scorer but also the top scorer of the championship last season, Polina Rahimova, to continue wearing their jersey. The Azerbaijani opposite hitter scored 428 points in the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina season.

In addition to Rahimova, Bauru renewed with the outside hitter Tifanny Abreu, the setter Danielle Lins “Dani Lins”, the middle blocker Adenízia Silva, and the libero Júlia Machado.

The team from the São Paulo State secured three new signings: Dominican libero Brenda Castillo (no club, recovering from the left arm fracture sustained in the traffic accident in August), the middle blocker Mara Leão (Osasco/Audax), and the setter Carolina Leite “Carol Leite” (Sesc RJ). She will replace Naiane Rios, who moved to Osasco/Audax.

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...
