The extraordinary male volleyball outside hitter has signed a three-year contract with Leo Shoes Modena!


Yoandy Leal is a new Modena player. The Cuban superstar, a naturalized Brazilian, has signed a three-year contract with the Italian side. This transfer of an outside hitter from Cucine Lube Civitanova gained even bigger weight given it was realized between two major SuperLega rivals and title contenders.

A 32-year-old player made his name outside of Cuba in the jersey of Brazil’s Sada Cruzeiro with whom he won practically everything between 2012 and 2018: three FIVB Club World Championships, four South American Championships, five Brazilian Championships, and three Brazilian Cups. The arrival in Italy in 2018 caused an earthquake in the world volleyball market. During the last three seasons, which he all spent in Lube, Leal has won an FIVB Club World Championship, a CEV Champions League, two Italian Championships, and two Italian Cups.

So far, Modena hired Nimir Abdel-Aziz, Bruno Rezende, Earvin Ngapeth... what a dream team!

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
