The new opposite hitter of the current CEV Champions League winners Igor Gorgonzola Novara will be Serbian Jovana Brakočević-Canzian.


A 31-year-old Serbian Brakočević-Canzian, who also possesses an Italian sports nationality, came to Novara from Grot Budowlani Łódź for which she scored 639 points last season - an absolute record of the Polish Women’s league. She set another record in the 2018/19 – the CEV Champions Game single-scoring record of 38 points.

With Serbia national team, for which she no longer competes, Brakočević-Canzian won the CEV EuroVolley once and CEV European League two times. On a club level, she claimed the CEV Champions League and FIVB Club World Championship once each (both with VakıfBank, Turkey) as well as national championship titles in five different countries (2 apiece in Serbia and Turkey,  and one apiece in Italy, Romania, and Poland). And that is only a part of her gold medal collection. Her greatest individual achievement was the MVP award in the 2011 CEV EuroVolley.

Brakočević-Canzian will replace Paola Egonu, who moved to Imoco Volley Conegliano.

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.
