The famous Dominican female Volleyball player Bethania de la Cruz will play for the 2018/19 Russian Championship semifinalists Dinamo Kazan next season.

 

An experienced Dominican player De la Cruz will wear the jersey of 5-time Russian titleholders Dinamo Kazan in the 2019/20 season, the club announced. A 32-year-old opposite hitter already competed in the Superliga (2016/17 with Dinamo Moscow) and won the title. She is coming from an Indonesian side Jakarta Pertamina Energi.

Amongst numerous gold medals, these stand out in the collection of the Dominican Republic national team captain: one each in the CEV Champions League and FIVB Club World Championship (both with Eczacıbaşı VitrA), Russian Championship (Dinamo Moscow), Dominican Championship (Mirador), Puerto Rican Championship (Criollas de Caguas) and Korean Championship (GS Caltex Seoul Kixx).

Individually, De la Cruz was recognized Dominican Republic Volleyball Player of the Year twice and MVP of the Pan-American Cup, NORCECA Championship and Puerto Rican Championship once each. She was also named Best Scorer of the NORCECA Championship, Pan-American Games and Japanese Championship twice apiece as well as Best Scorer of the Pan-American Cup and Puerto Rican Championship one-time apiece.

Recently, Dinamo Kazan extended with an opposite hitter Tatyana Kadochkina and parted ways with an outside hitter Anastasiya Bavykina (Proton Saratov).

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
