IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
