Tuomas Sammelvuo, the head coach of Russia Men’s Volleyball national team, called the qualification of his team to the 2020 Olympic Games one of the best moments in his life.

 

The victory over Iran in the last round of Pool E, in the FIVB International Qualifier, brought Russia a ticket to Tokyo.

“This is one of the happiest moments of my life. It was my dream in childhood - to go to the Olympics, and we are at it. A lot of teamwork was done, the guys were great. Tension and nervousness? No, this is already in the past, we have completed the task. The coach is always under pressure, the result is always required from him. It doesn’t matter if you work in a club or in a national team. But working with a team like the Russian team is a dream. I don’t think there could be any tension from this. Just a pleasure!” Sammelvuo stated.

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
