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.

She wont miss the Olympics. She is already 4 months pregnant and will give birth early February. Enough time to recovery. Reply

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
