The All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VEF) entrusted the command of the women’s national team to Sergio Busato.


Russia Women’s National Team will remain under the guidance of Sergio Busato. From September, an Italian expert served as a temporary head coach of “Zbornaya“ after the resignation of Vadim Pankov. However, the VFV decided to appoint Busato as head coach permanently. The Italian already took one medal with Russia Women – the bronze at the 2019 FIVB World Cup.

Busato came into the Russian volleyball in the middle of the last decade and since then, he has been continuously working in the country but mostly in the male volleyball. He was in Russia Men staff when they won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics. Busato had the support of the players in Russia's female national team, who wrote to the VFV asking them to leave him on the bench. This summer, Busato was suspended by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) for making an inappropriate winning celebration during the International Olympic Qualifier.

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.
