Tuomas Sammelvuo won his first trophy with Russia Men’s Volleyball national team and did it only four and a half months upon being appointed to this position.

After winning the 2019 FIVB Nations League with Russia, the Finnish expert Sammelvuo shared his emotions and gratitude to everyone in Russia national team.

“I’m grateful to everyone who works in our team. The federation, the coaching staff, the doctors, and, of course, the players – we’re all one team. I’m not only looking at the result. Its equally important that we have a really strong team. In the semifinals and finals, we had very difficult moments, but no one gave up. Everyone believed in success. Im very pleased how our bench players performed,” Sammelvuo stated for Sport Ekspress.

He was asked to comment on Poletaev’s weak play in the first set.

“That’s my fault. I requested to focus a little on the other things, to play differently than we used to. Igor Kobzar distributed him fewer balls, not as usual. But that was my request. And Vitya (Poletaev) is great because he wasnt discouraged and played until the end. It’s important. We won’t always succeed, the question is how we react to it. The most important points in this game were scored by Poletaev,” the Finnish expert said and added:

“What we wanted, we achieved it. But now, we have to look further.”

FIVB, change the rule, please!

Re: @Sorah
That is very stupid too, indeed. If we do a simple analysis we can find a lot of other very stupid things. Another one is uselessly continuing the set when the score difference is 10 points. Who has recovered from that? (I mean in the senior games, not in the underage games.)

FIVB, change the rule, please!

Re: @Sorin Acela
The most stupid rule is each set has 25 points and teams only play serious game from point 15-16.
If sets had 15 or 11 points, they cared from first point, and didn't cause spectators to sleep. Reply

FIVB, change the rule, please!

Volleyball has gathered stupid aspects because it is ruled by stupid people like Oldman Graca and Oldman Boričić! Then you have other silly people like this guy. By far the most stupid thing in volleyball is hugging twice a minute. That has to change, that has to be forbidden. Multiple other aspects have to change, but no one is interested in improving volleyball. I sent much more interesting proposals to people in the high hierarchy of volleyball, but no one cared. Some of those morons can't even read an email! While world volleyball is ruled by stupid careless morons, it continue the road towards dying, with most games having 100-300 spectators. This blog is also uninterested in the improvement of volleyball. Reply
