Jovana Brakočević-Canzian finished her adventure in the Polish Women’s Volleyball side Grot Budowlani Łódź.


“Budowlani… thank you for an amazing season. I will have you in my heart for the rest of my life. It was the pleasure and honor to play for this team and great fans,” the Serbian opposite hitter posted on her Instagram profile after becoming the Liga Siatkówki Kobiet 2018/2019 runner-up with Grot Budowlani Łódź.

A former Serbia national team member had a memorable season behind her, scoring a record 639 points in the Polish top division and winning nine MVP of the Match awards.

According to unofficial information from Italian media, a 31-year-old Brakočević-Canzian will join Igor Gorgonzola Novara for the next season, which would be her return to the Italian volleyball after two seasons (Liu Jo Nordmeccanica Modena 2016/17).

It also seems that Novara are about to form a mighty squad for the 2019/20. The American Michelle Bartsch is, at this point, closer to stay in the club than to leave for China. The same goes for the middle blocker's duo Cristina Chirichella - Stefana Veljković, and libero Stefania Sansonna.

Bartsch’s compatriot Micha Hancock (Saugella team Monza) and Bulgarian Elitsa Vasileva (Savino Del Bene Scandicci) are close to joining Novara and filling in the line-up as the setter and outside hitter, respectively.

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
