The South American Volleyball Confederation (CSV) decided which countries will organize Olympic qualifications in both competitions at the meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

 

The Executive Committee of the CSV, commanded by the President Rafael Lloreda and attended by the five confederation members, that was held in Rio de Janeiro formalized the decision on the organization of the two continental Olympic qualification tournaments in January.

Colombia (the city of Manizales) will host the Women’s tournament, beating the proposals of Argentina (whose federation President was certain his country will get the organization) and Peru. In addition to the home team, Argentina, Peru and Venezuela will also play the tournament. Brazil is the only female national team from South America that already secured a berth in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Chile (the capital of Santiago) will organize the Men’s qualifier and will face Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. Chilean federation was the only one to bid for hosting the tournament. Brazil and Argentina have already sealed the two continental tickets for the event in Japan.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

As far as I know,turks gave up on recruiting vargas due to her marriage with a woman.Maybe this is why rich İstanbul clubs don't hire Egonu.

However what I didn't understand until yesterday is, if fenerbahçe can tolerate such players with, say, unusual preferences, then why it didn't change Vargas with Egonu.Again why they hired a 2nd class player, Busa,but not a better player such as Stysiak, Herbots etc..

Terzic has never been Fenerbahçe coach but 7/24 serbian n. team coach.All his decisions, preferences,actions are always parallel with serbia n. team's interests,not with fener's.Fener has 3 foreign athletes,all serbs,coincidence? The club must send him immediately. Otherwise fenerbahçe remains doomed to be the 3rd-5th team in home,and to be defeated in CL by vakıfbank, eczacıbası and by the italian team which has Egonu (presently Imoco I think)

Actually the problem is not special to Terzic,but to trainers coaching 2 teams.a national team other than turkish team and a club team. Federation would better ban clubs to hire such coaches. Reply
