A two-time consecutive Japanese Women’s Volleyball Championship winners Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical Springs aim for the Brazilian star Fabiana Claudino.


Hisamitsu will remain without Foluke Akinradewo and set their eyes on Fabiana Claudino to replace her, the Brazilian website Melhor do Vôlei reported.

The American middle blocker was an unreplaceable link in Hisamitsu’s chain in previous two seasons in which the club won two championship titles. But, since she made up her mind to leave Japan, Hisamistsu turned to a worthy replacement – a two-time Olympic champions Fabiana.

A 34-year-old Brazilian defended the colors of Dentil/Praia Clube in the last three seasons, winning the national title in 2018. So far, Fabiana played only one season abroad – the 2011/12 in Fenerbahçe Opet, Turkey.

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
