The champions Tours needed as much as four rounds to seize the first win in the 2019/20 French Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.

 

After suffering defeats in all three games since the beginning of the 2019/20 Ligue A Masculine regular season, Tours showed their strength that drove them to a title last season against none other than leaders in the charts Tourcoing: 3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-20). Despite the worst start to the season in more than 20 years, Tours’ fans did not turn their back on players, filling the stands of the Robert Grenon hall nearly to the top (2,500 spectators). Led by Hermans Egleskalns, Tours downed Tourcoing, who was undefeated prior to the match and was looking down from the top of the table to all the other teams in the league. Latvian opposite hitter scored 22 points through amazing attack success rate of 82% (18/22)!

Nantes Rezé prevented Sète to take the provisional lead in the charts by recording a 3-2 away win. Slovakian opposite hitter Peter Michalovič really stands out for Nantes this season. He delivered 18 points today, while Belarussian-Russian duo Vasyl Tupchii and Vyacheslav Tarasov scored 47 points combined. Tupchii scored 24, while Tarasov made one point less.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
