Two-time consecutive titleholders of the Japanese Women’s Volleyball Championship, Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical Springs, returned their former player Miyu Nagaoka.

 

Both Hisamitsu and Nagaoka announced the beginning of a new collaboration. The Japanese Women’s volleyball star will return to the team from Kobe after a season which she spent in the jersey of Italian league winners Imoco Volley Conegliano. Actually, a 27-year-old outside hitter played only a half of the season as she picked up a knee injury in December 2018.

Hisamitsu will have the patience for Nagaoka as she will undergo a rehabilitation process during the summer before her body becomes ready for competitive efforts.

Before moving to Imoco, Nagaoka defended the colors of Hisamitsu for eight straight seasons, winning four national titles, six Emperor’s Cups and one Asian Club Championship with the club. She was named two-time Japanese Championship and one-time Asian Club Championship MVP.

FIVB drastically reduces number of players per team in Nations League?

While I understand and appreciate the VNL organizers and investors want the best product on the floor everytime and all the time, each of these federations also have financial , logistical and athletic investments to consider and protect. The demands in time, travel and player health is seriously tested during this event.
This move of roster limitations is not healthy for the sport. Growth and experience within each Federation can be achieved through the VNL and expanded rosters. Here is where the next generation of stars can play side by side or against today's stars and deeper interest in each country's rosters can be generated. In addition, we all have to realize that we want to make sure the 12 teams competing at the Olympics are at full strength. This move actually hurts that possibility.
The VNL is a great tourney and still evolving in my opinion but this move is a step back. I sure hope they reverse this Reply

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Something is not working well within Trentino this season. They have the same team as last year but no results. Lube is weaker than last year (Sokolov and Stankovic left) and yet they play better. Leal is playing more and Juantorena is a top-notch professional despite his age of 35, but still. Reply
