The Cuban male volleyball player Javier Jiménez recovered from coronavirus, the country’s national federation President stated.


An experienced outside hitter Javier Jiménez, the former Cuba National Team member, was discharged from the hospital. He completed without difficulty the epidemiological surveillance stage after being tested positive for the new COVID-19, the head of the Cuban Volleyball Federation (FCV) Ariel Saínz explained. Following the recovery, Jiménez, who was the first Cuban athlete to play abroad without having to defect from the country, will stay in Estonia – where he played this season.

The Rio Olympics participant was tested when it was learned that one of the officials of his club Saaremaa VK got infected from coronavirus after the CEV Challenge Cup match against Italy’s Allianz Milano.

Before Jiménez one more volleyball player recovered from COVID-19 – Earvin Ngapeth.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply
