The Turkey National Team redeemed for yesterday’s surprising defeat against the Dominican Republic in the 2021 FIVB Womens’ Volleyball Nations League.


Turkey achieved the win at the end of the third week of the 2021 Women’s VNL in the Rimini bubble (Italy). Prevailing in a thriller against Russia, who was returning twice in the game (trailed 0-1 and 1-2 in sets), the team coached by Giovanni Guidetti improved to 8-1 and redeemed for a surprising defeat against the Dominican Republic yesterday: 3-2 (25-22, 22-25, 25-18, 18-25, 15-7). Ebrar Karakurt stood out in Turkey when it comes to scoring (25 points) and reception (81.3 % digs; 14/16), while Eda Erdem Dündar dominated on the net with as many as 8 blocks (out of the team’s 18).

Poland missed a huge chance to overpower Japan. The ladies commanded by Jacek Nawrocki lost to the Asian side (who is at 7-2) despite leading 2-0 in sets and 12-10 in the tie-break, and despite their teammate, Magdalena Stysiak, tallying 35 points. Sarina Koga scored 26 for Japan.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
