Both Chinese teams are eliminated from the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Club World Championship in Shaoxing.


Turkish teams stood on the way of Chinese rivals in the last round of the pool stage. Firstly, Eczacıbaşı VitrA Istanbul beat the official hosts Guangdong Evergrande in a direct clash for No.2 in Pool A, whilst the reigning champions VakıfBank Istanbul wrote down a straight-set victory over Tianjin Bohai Bank and became the other team from Pool A to advance to the semis. So now, there will be two Turkish-Italian encounters in the semifinals.

Tianjin were greatly weakened for a decisive duel. Their main superstar Zhu Ting injured her wrist in the match against Dentil Praia Clube in the third set, yesterday, so she was unable to play against her ex-team. Zhu commented on the seriousness of her injury after today’s match: “In fact, my wrist is old, and this time it’s more serious than before.“

The Swede Isabelle Haak chipped in with 24 points for VakıfBank. Li Yingying made 9 for Tianjin.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
