After the victory in the women’s competition of Imoco Volley Conegliano in China, Cucine Lube Civitanova won the trophy in the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship in Betim, Brazil!

 

Italian Cucine Lube Civitanova won the title which they had never won before! In the final of the 2019 Club World Championship, they beat three-time champions and a home side of Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei by a 3-1 (25-23, 19-25, 31-29, 25-21). Thus, the trophy in the men's competition remained in Italy as Itas Trentino took it last year. After losing two finals before, Lube have finally reached the highest step on the podium, less than seven months after winning the CEV Champions League.

The third set turned out to be crucial because Cruzeiro failed to convert as many as six set points to take the lead in sets of 2-1. Cuban-born duo Osmany Juantorena - Yoandy Leal scored 20 points apiece for the winning side, while Argentinean Facundo Conte tallied 21 points for Cruzeiro.

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
