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.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
