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.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

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

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

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

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
