An amazing unbeaten run of River Plate in the 2019/20 Argentine Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season came to an end.


River Plate’s last match on Weekend 3 of the 2019/20 Liga Argentina de Voleibol regular season brought them their first failure. The team from Buenos Aires is a real hit of the season in Argentina so far, winning all five games since the beginning of the season. But, the reigning champions Bolívar Voley have ended their unbeaten run and, at the same time, extend their own by prevailing in the big match in straight-sets, partially 25-20, 25-23 and 25-14. Cuban opposite hitter Jesús Herrera top-scored for Bolívar with 20 points, including 5 aces. However, River remained at the top of the charts with 5-1 and 15 points.

The second most-titled side in Liga Argentina, UPCN San Juan Voley Club, needed four games to record their premier victory. They did it in the city derby against the vice-champions Obras de San Juan.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
