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.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
