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.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
