The Slovenian women’s volleyball has lost one of the strongest pillars of the national team, Iza Mlakar.


The 24-year-old opposite hitter Mlakar, a member of the Slovenia National Team, reached the surprising decision to end her volleyball career and dedicate herself to studying medicine.

She spent most of her career in Nova KBM Branik, to which she came in 2012 and won altogether 11 titles: 5 national championships, 4 national cups, and 2 Middle European Leagues (MEVZA). Mlakar moved to the Italian Championship, a year ago, to defend the colors of European club champions, Igor Gorgonzola Novara.

She has worn the jersey of the Slovenia National Team since the age of 17, which was in 2013.

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
