After a heroic play in the tie-break, Imoco Volley Conegliano accessed the final of the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Club World Championship in Shaoxing, China.


The Italian champions Imoco Volley Conegliano will play the final of the 2019 Club World Championship. It was quite a memorable semifinal match in which the team coached by Daniele Santarelli canceled as many as nine match points against titleholders VakıfBank Istanbul! Turkish powerhouse had the first match point at 14-10 but even four chances in a row weren’t enough for Giovani Guidetti’s ladies to close the encounter.

After canceling nine match points of rivals, Imoco converted their own third match point thanks to the block of the Pole Joanna Wołosz on Brazilian Gabriela Guimarães “Gabi“: 3-2 (25-23, 20-25, 25-23, 21-25, 23-21). Phenomenal Paola Egonu chipped in with 38 points for Imoco! Logically, she earned MVP of the match award. The Swede Isabelle Haak scored 24 points for VakıfBank, while Zehra Güneş made 5 kill blocks.

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.
