The Canada Men’s Volleyball National Team has joined the party at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.


The Tokyo ball was in Canada’s court on the last day of the 2020 NORCECA Men’s Olympic Qualifier. After prevailing over the biggest rivals for playing at the 2020 Olympic Games, Cuba, in the penultimate round of the qualification tournament, Canada didn't miss the opportunity to celebrate progression to the event in the Japanese capital on home soil in Vancouver. On the last day of the tournament, they smashed Puerto Rico by a 3-0 (25-21, 25-15, 25-15).

Arthur Szwarc was the top scorer for Canada with 13 points. Thus, Canada annulled the 3-1 win of Cuba against Mexico. The team coached by Glenn Hoag will appear at the Olympic Games for the 5th time, 2nd in a row.

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
