Maksim Mikhaylov and Artem Volvich, both ’Zbornaya’ members, have renewed their contracts with Zenit-Kazan.

The Russian men’s volleyball giants put an end to speculations regarding Mikhaylov’s departure from the club (allegedly to Italy) and bound him for 2021/22. Thus, a 32-year-old opposite hitter will continue his career in the club for which he has been competing for more than a decade, more precisely since 2010, and has played 501 matches. As part of Zenit, Mikhaylov won the CEV Champions League 5 times, FIVB Club World Championship 1 time, Russian Championship 7 times, national Cup 6 times, and national Super Cup 8 times.

In addition to the ’Mad Max’, Zenit secured a signature to the new contract with the starting middle blocker Volvich, too. A 31-year-old giant (2.12m) has been playing for the Kazan club since the 2016/17 season. He helped Zenit win the CEV Champions League 3 times, FIVB Club World Championship 1 time, Russian Championship 2 times, Russian Cup 4 times, and Russian Super Cup 4 times.

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
