1143 0

Serbia and Belgium met each other in a bronze medal match and Grbic’s side has managed to win it after a very uncertain five-set game.

 

It was an extremely tough match because we had to come back on the court after less than 24 hours since our loss to Germany. We had to overcome all emotional obstacles, so my greatest congratulations to my players for this unbelievable performance. They did their best on the court and gave everything to claim this medal. We overcame all emotional and physical difficulties and showed very good Volleyball. I think that we played better matches earlier in this tournament, but considering the fact that it was the last match and we won a tiebreak after such an intensive match yesterday, which also ended after five sets - I can say that we played the best we could,” says Grbic.

We showed that we deserved to play in this Final Four. At this very moment, I feel a little disappointed, because this medal was not so far, and it was incredible that we came back and we showed that we could play at this level. Now, we have two steps to learn. First, how to lose, and next step is to learn how to win,” says Heynen.

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
