The Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) has difficulties to arrange the beginning of the training for its national teams.


The CBV said it will follow the decision of the country’s Olympic Committee (COB) who earlier announced the sending of about 200 athletes, divided into groups from July to December, for training in Europe.

Portugal is the first country that COB has chosen because it’s at an advanced stage in confronting COVID-19 and because of a good mutual relationship between these two Olympic Committees. The COB stressed it will cover the transportation, accommodation, and meals for the delegations of national federations. The COB also said it will finalize, in consultations with specialists and doctors from national federations, a protocol for resuming training in the country, more specifically at the Training Center in Rio de Janeiro.

However, some media reported that due to the increasing number of cases of coronavirus infection in Brazil (it became the second country to hit one million cases), things are getting complicated, especially for women’s volleyball national team.

At this moment, no country seems to be ready to host the training of the squad coached by Zé Roberto so the two-time Olympic champions are thinking of staying in Brazil and resuming their activities there. Due to pandemic, any gatherings would take place, not in the Volleyball Development Center in Saquarema, but in Barueri.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

Vargas chooses nothing because neither turkish nor other federation invited her to play in their nt, except for the serbs. she is neither an egonu (italian born african) nor an ismailoglu (bosnian born turk) and vargas may damage the chemistry of an nt. however terzic, her coach for years, is close to her and may be covinced to adapt her to the serbian team.

we must focus on 2 points: this 'veil of secrecy' and reaction of people in the website.

serbs surely kept things secret,as they were afraid if turks discovered their intention they would also made an offer to her which would ruin serbs'dreams.
but this 'veil of secrecy' may cause big drouble to terzic and fenerbahce may fire him and even vargas next year...but these are my personal opinions. lets wait and see.

more interesting is after fake news that vargas would play for turkey drove some people in the worldofvolley mad, they screamed like 'scandalous....must be prohibited....big fraud', and now i see these crusader-minded idiots keep silence. :D Reply
