The Korean Women’s Volleyball Championship runners-up Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass replaced their foreign player less than a week prior to the opening of the 2019/20 season (October 19).

 

Expressway published that their choice number one for a foreign player for the next season, the American Sherridan Atkinson, broke inner ligament in her right knee during the training and was predicted a significant break. Thus, she and a club parted ways, which forced the club management to find a replacement for her.

The choice has fallen on Atkinson’s compatriot Taylor Cook. The 26-year-old outside hitter is familiar with playing in South Korea knowing that she defended the colors of Hungkuk Life Pink Spiders in the 2017/18 season. Last season, Cook (ex-Simpson) played in France, in the jersey of Paris Saint-Cloud.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
