Rennes became the new team to lead the charts of the 2019/20 French Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Several teams swapped places at the top of the 2019/20 Ligue A Masculine regular season. Now, it was time for Rennes to claim No.1.

Thanks to brutal display of Brazilian opposite hitter Rafael Araújo (34 points) and defensive performance of Argentine libero Facundo Santucci (81%, 16 digs, 50% excellent), Rennes defeated Tourcoing in the big match and replaced them at the forefront of the league: 3-1 (26-24, 22-25, 25-23, 25-18). Not even 94% reception (17 digs, 41% excellent) from Julien Lemay and 21 points from Serbian Miran Kujundžić didn’t help Tourcoing.

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.
