Poland Men’s Volleyball national team head coach Vital Heynen crossed out 2 players from the preliminary list and announced the final list of players that will compete in the Olympic qualification in Gdańsk (August 9-11).

 

After sparring games against Belgium and the Netherlands, Heynen decided to cross out one outside hitter and one middle blocker: Bartosz Bednorz and Jakub Kochanowski.

Whilst the decision not to take Kochanowski to the qualifications was not such a surprise knowing the fierce competition that he had on his position in the national team, the deletion of Bednorz was a bit shocking. A 25-year-old player was the leader of Poland during the Final Six of the 2019 FIVB Nations League in Chicago.

The newly formed composition of Poland national team will play the Wagner Memorial in the next couple of days prior to the qualifications for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Setters: Fabian Drzyzga, Grzegorz Łomacz.

Opposite hitters: Dawid Konarski, Maciej Muzaj.

Middle blockers: Piotr Nowakowski, Mateusz Bieniek, Karol Kłos.

Outside hitters: Wilfredo León, Michał Kubiak, Bartosz Kwolek, Aleksander Śliwka, Artur Szalpuk.

Liberos: Paweł Zatorski, Damian Wojtaszek.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
