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.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
