Igor Gorgonzola Novara set off their title defense campaign in the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League with an easy victory over pool stage debutants Khimik Yuzhny.

 

Novara recovered well from losing the recent Italian Super Cup to Imoco Volley Conegliano and trampled over Khimik, the first-ever Ukrainian team in the pool stage of the Champions League, in Pool C. The difference between these two sides was enormous in favor of titleholders: 3-0 (25-17, 25-10. 25-7).

Fully recovered Serbian opposite hitter Jovana Brakočević Canzian put down 20 points for the winning side, while American Micha Hancock served 5 aces.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
