The 12th placed team in the Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship last season, Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia, strengthened its squad by engaging Swan Ngapeth.


A 27-year-old Swan Ngapeth came to Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia from Top Volley Latina, another Italian Championship side.

The French outside hitter is a part of a volleyball family: he is the son of a former player and head coach Eric Ngapeth and brother of Earvin Ngapeth, one of the best players in the world who currently plays in Zenit Kazan, Russia.

Vibo signed several more players in the summer transfer window earlier: Brazilian opposite hitter Aboubacar Neto “Abouba” (EMS Taubaté Funvic, Brazil), American outside hitter Torey DeFalco (Long Beach State 49ers, NCAA), French outside hitter Timothée Carle (Ajaccio, France), French middle blocker Barthélémy Chinenyeze (Tours, France), and libero Marco Rizzo (Vero Volley Monza).

The club extended with the setter Sebastiano Marsili, and middle blockers Marco Vitelli and Stefano Mengozzi.

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply

I would have to agree here. Leal is a huge addition to a very talented squad. They have been a force all tourney long.
