The Puerto Rican female volleyball legend Áurea “Aury” Cruz has returned to play in her home country after a decade.

 

The veteran outside hitter Cruz strengthened Amazonas de Trujillo Alto in the Puerto Rican Women’s Volleyball Championship (LVSF), returning to play in her home country after 10 years.

The last time she competed in the Puerto Rican top division was in the 2009/10 season when she defended the colors of Llaneras de Toa Baja. After that and prior to that, Cruz performed in the NCAA, Italy, Spain, South Korea, Azerbaijan, and Turkey, and also on many major international events with the national team from which she retired in January. The 38-year-old player was one of several foreigners dismissed by the management of the Italian side Golden Tulip Volalto 2.0 Caserta after disappointing results in the first half of the ongoing season in Serie A.

Check out the list of foreigners in the 2019/20 LVSF.

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.
