The one-time CEV European Championship and FIVB World League winner with the Russia men’s volleyball National Team, Nikolay Pavlov, ended his active career at the age of 38.


The veteran opposite hitter Pavlov switched to managerial work – he’ll be the sports director of the reigning men's champions of Russia - Lokomotiv. The 38-year-old spent most of his professional career exactly in this club (2006 - 2011, 2016 - 2019), helping them win the 2010 Russian Cup and becoming the MVP of the Final Four.

The Ukraine-born Pavlov played in Slovakia’s VK OSMOS Prievidza last season with which he won the national Cup and earned the MVP of the final award. On a club level, Pavlov won two Ukrainian Cups (both with Yurydychna Akademiya) and one CEV Cup (with Dinamo Moscow). Individually, he was awarded MVP of the CEV Cup, Russian league, and Russian Cup once each. In the latter tournament, he was Best Scorer once.

As a member of the Russia National Team (45 caps), Pavlov became the European champion in 2013 and winner of the World League the same year, having received the MVP award.

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.
