One more national team withdrew from the 2021 FIVB Volleyball Nations League in Rimini, Italy.


The Thailand Women’s Volleyball National Team won’t play the VNL 2021, becoming the second team (the China Men’s NT withdrew, too) to withdraw from the prestigious annual event organized by the FIVB.

As many as 22 members (including players and staff) have been diagnosed with Covid-19. Initially, 4 members of the Thai team were tested positive during preparations for the VNL in Nakhon Pathom. After that, swabs were taken from all team members and staff in the Bangkok hospital and 22 had positive tests. All were asymptomatic.

Due to this, the team was unable to prepare for this tournament at a determined pace so the Thailand Volleyball Association (TVA) promptly notified FIVB of the withdrawal of the national team from the VNL.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
