WCH 2018 W: Terzic – “It’s hard to find the words”; Ognjenovic – “We have some special energy”

1996 0

Zoran Terzic was waiting for this moment since 2002 when he came to lead the Serbian national team! It paid off since Terzic won many medals with this team. This result is one of the most important in his career!

 

It's hard to find words. We are happy and proud. It was our dream. I have been the coach since 2002. We saw Russia and the U.S. win golds at previous World Championships and thought it would be great if we could do it. This is the biggest success in the history of Serbia women's volleyball. When I took over we were ranked something like 100th in the world.“

I am very proud of this historic victory. We played good volleyball. It was amazing. They fought well until the end. I'm proud we came back. It was tough. To be the champions is our dream come true. We have some special energy and have played together for a long time,” says Maja Ognjenovic, the captain of the team.

The MVP of the World Champs Tijana Boskovic has also commented on this big success:

It was a long road but we made it to historical success. I am very proud of everybody. I am happy and honored to be named MVP of the World Championship. I could not have made it without the help of the team, staff and coaches. This award will give me big motivation for the future. We played as a team and supported each other in difficult moments.”

Serbia player Brankica Mihajlovic:

I'm extremely happy and proud. We played well from the beginning of the tournament. Italy was strong. We showed our mental strength to come back and win.”

The Serbian team defeated the Italian girls in the final of the World Champs!

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
