The Islamic Republic of Iran Volleyball Federation (IRIVF) made the appointment of Vladimir Alekno to the bench of the men’s national team official.


The IRIVF’s Board of Directors reached a joint agreement to appoint the Russian expert Alekno as a new head coach of its men’s national team. Thus, the governing body for volleyball in this Asian country made the media revelation official.

The 2012 London Olympics winner as a head coach of the Russia Men’s National Team won the ‘battle’ for the job in Iran in which IRIVF included four more world’s prominent experts. Alekno will lead the Iran Men at the 2021 FIVB Volleyball Nations League and 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games. The 53-year-old coach will replace Montenegrin Igor Kolaković, who parted ways with IRIVF in March.

The Iranian team is considered a giant in the continent with 17 medals on its account in events in Asia (8 gold medals) but it has only one medal in major international tournaments (bronze medal at the 2017 World Grand Champions Cup). Alekno’s task will be to improve the latter.

Vargas exclusively for WoV: “I have no desire to change my federation of origin“

Re: @George
This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
