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).

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
