The newly appointed head coach of Russia Women’s Volleyball National Team, Sergio Busato, told RIA Novosti that he will summon the superstar Tatyana Kosheleva for the preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.


The new head coach of Russia Women, Italian Sergio Busato, delivered great news for the volleyball fans in the country – he will call superstar Tatyana Kosheleva to train with the national team for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, RIA Novosti reported.

After missing out on the 2018 FIVB World Championship due to left knee injury, the 30-year-old outside hitter who is currently defending the colors of the Chinese side Guangdong did not play for Russia in 2019 at all. This means that, in case of accepting to join Russia Women preparations for the Summer Olympics next spring, Kosheleva will return to the national team after two years.

The Russian team needs her, badly. She used to be one of the top attackers in the league. Even Zhu Ting paid her a huge compliment saying she contacts the ball at such heights thus making it hard to block her.

@Cjango Kosheleva's not the same girl in 2015 anymore. She's past her prime.

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.
