Itambé/Minas took the title in the 2020/21 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship.


The top-seed Itambé/Minas overcame so many ups and downs and 2 incredibly poor sets in Game 3 of 2020/21 Brazilian Women’s Superliga Banco do Brasil playoff finals against no.3 Dentil/Praia Clube and won the championship title: 3-2 (25-17, 13-25, 12-25, 25-18, 15-11).

The title crowned, practically, the perfect season for Minas. At one point, they endured 4 months without losing in the regular season (21 wins in a row), which they finished with only one defeat. The Belo Horizonte side ended the competition with just 2 defeats in 28 games. The victory with whom they closed the series in the bubble in Saquarema gave Minas the fourth national title, the second in a row (1993, 2002, 2019, and 2021).

American Megan Easy from Minas was the top scorer of Game 3 with 24 points. Dominican Brayelin Martínez tallied 22 points for Praia. A two-time Olympic champion and the middle blocker of the titleholders, Thaísa Daher, was elected the MVP of Superliga.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
