The reigning European Women’s Volleyball champions Igor Gorgonzola Novara closed the opposite hitter’s department for the 2019/20 season.


Novara engaged Slovenia national team opposite hitter Iza Mlakar to complete the roster for the 2019/20 when it comes to this position. A 23-year-old player, the 2017 FIVB U23 World Championship Best Opposite Hitter, will compete for the place in the starting line-up with Serbian Jovana Brakočević-Canzian, who came to the club earlier.

Novara will be Mlakar’s first club abroad. She was playing in Nova KBM Branik in the last several seasons, winning the Slovenian Championship five times, Slovenian Cup four times and MEVZA (Middle European Cup) Cup two times.Since 2011, when he was only 16 years old, Mlakar has been an integral part of her home country’s senior national team.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
