The Puerto Rican Shara Venegas became the second reinforcement from the Caribbean of a highly ambitious Ukraine’s women’s volleyball club, SK Prometey.


Venegas, the 27-year-old libero of the Puerto Rico National Team, has become a newcomer to the unofficial Ukrainian champions Prometey. Thus, she joined another newcomer - Cuban Dayami Sánchez to form a duo of the players from the Caribbean in the lineup.

Venegas has been a member of the Puerto Rico National Team since 2009, debuting in their jersey at the age of 16. She performed in her home country in the last two seasons, defending the colors of Caguas. Moving to Prometey will be Venegas’ first transfer to Europe.

The team from Kamianske was formed only a year ago and instantly got a chance to compete in the country’s top division. Already in their debut season, Prometey amazed, finishing first in the regular season. However, the season had to be canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Prometey have high ambitions in 2020/21 given that they hired several more big names in the offseason, such as Bulgarian setter Lora Kitipova (VK Maritza, Bulgaria) and domestic star - the opposite hitter Anastasiia Kraiduba (Grot Budowlani Łódź, Poland).

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.
