WCH U19 M: Italy grab the crown!

645 0

Italy are celebrating the success of their U19 national team at the U 19 World Championship.

 

They have managed to win the gold medal after beating Russia in the finals 3-1 (26-24, 21-25, 25-19, 25-18). 

The 'Azzurri' wrapped up the competition undefeated with an 8-0 record, 22 years after their previous (and only other) success in the competition when Italy beat Greece for gold in 1997 in Tehran.

After losing to Iran in the previous edition of the World Championship for boys U19, Russia failed again in this year's edition since Italy were better in four sets.

After two sets, the game was tied but in another two, Italy simply smashed the rival to win the championship.

Alessandro Michieletto was top scorer of the game with 20 points for Italy, as his teammate Stefani added another 18. Ilya Kazachenkov was Russia's best scorer with 16.

Italy's attacking efficiency of 49% (50/102) was vastly superior to Russia's 37% (36/97).

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
