After the defeat against the Dominican Republic in a decider for the pass to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, the Women’s Volleyball National Team of Puerto Rico remained without 2 players for the future tournaments.


Veteran players Áurea Cruz and Karina Ocasio announced retiring from the national team after the defeat to the Dominican Republic in the NORCECA Olympic Qualifier in a deciding match for going to the Tokyo Olympics. Also, the head coach José Mieles handed his resignation at the conclusion of the same game due to family reasons.

This was not the first time that Cruz and Ocasio have retired from international volleyball. Both did it after the 2016 Rio Olympics but later returned to the national team actions.

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
