The 11th-placed side in the 2018/19 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship Lardini Filottrano remained without a player with whom it signed the contract for the next season.

 

Filottrano published that the U.S. player Paige Tapp has informed the club that she was not able to commit to sporting experience away from home country for personal reasons.

As a 24-year-old middle blocker said to Filottrano management, she wants to move away from playing professional Volleyball. The sudden decision of Paige Tapp, that came a few days before the start of the preparations for the new season, will force Filottrano to intervene on the market that is about to close.

Paige Tapp has been playing professionally for only three years. She came to Filottrano from Allianz MTV Stuttgart with whom she won the German Championship last season. With the U.S. National Team, she won the gold medal in the Pan American Cup two times as well as in the NORCECA Champions Cup, a week ago.

Her twin sister Hanna Tapp is also a professional Volleyball player anda member of the U.S. National Team. Next season, she will defend the colors of the Brazilian top division newcomers Flamengo.

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
