Serbia Men’s national team head coach Nikola Grbić made the last-minute change in the roster that will compete in the FIVB Volleyball International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (August 9-11) – and Serbian fans will love it!

 

Grbić has chosen 14 players for the tournament in Bari, Italy, (Pool C) a few days ago, and played the Wagner Memorial in Poland with them. But, a one-time CEV EuroVolley Best Blocker and 2-time CEV Champions League Best Middle Blocker, Marko Podraščanin, became Grbić’s last-minute change in the roster.

This means that the recovery of the middle blocker after the Achilles tendon surgery, due to which he missed out the 2019 FIVB Nations League, went well and he is ready to play for the national team. Podraščanin replaced Stevan Simić in Serbia’s roster for the Qualifier.

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
