The legendary Polish female Volleyball player Katarzyna “Kasia” Skowrońska-Dolata announced the end of her memorable career.

 

Skowrońska-Dolata, one of the most famous female Volleyball players in the world in the last 15 years, officially announced retirement from professional Volleyball at the age of 36.

The two-time European champion with Poland National Team (2003 and 2005) gave an interview for Przegląd Sportowy in which she explained why she decided to end her career.

“I executed my plan. After the injury that I suffered in January 2017 in the Italian League, when I tore the anterior cruciate ligament in my right knee, I returned to playing. I didn’t finish my career in Bergamo, as I assumed before. At the end of rehabilitation after an injury, a proposal from Brazil appeared. My beloved coach Zé Roberto talked me into playing. So I flew there and signed a contract with Hinode Barueri. However, I didn’t play much in the 2017/18 season, that’s why I decided to stay for one more. It was a lot of fun, but I also had good results. In my life I never think about my age but about individual statistics. Of course, I would like to get more in the Brazilian League, but we were eliminated in the quarterfinals. I feel unsatisfied, but you need to know when to get off the stage. Everyone praised me after this season, but I think that this is the perfect time to say stop. I waited a long time to make this decision. I had to mature to it,” the MVP of the 2010 FIVB World Club Championship and Best Scorer of the 2008 CEV Champions League, 2010 FIVB World Club Championship and 2007 FIVB World Cup stated.

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
