In order to find out the correct information, we have contacted the FIVB and asked for the official statement:


The FIVB can confirm that Ms. Ismailoglu was not registered in the final roster of Tokyo Volleyball Qualification Tournament due to eligibility concerns. There will be no further comment until the FIVB has concluded its investigation into this matter.”

Also, the head coach of Turkey Giovanni Guidetti has shared his thoughts with the volleyball fans about this case.

Recall that Meliha Ismailoglu couldn't be registered for Turkey to play at the Olympic qualification tournament due to some mistake in one document that was made a few years ago...

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply
