The hosts Colombia and Argentina won again in the 2020 South American Women’s Volleyball Olympic Qualifier, in Bogotá.


After sweeping Peru and Venezuela, respectively, Colombia and Argentina finished the 2nd day of the tournament victoriously.

Led by Amanda Coneo (15 points) and by the 19-year-old Valerin Carabali (5 kill blocks), and again in front of the packed stands painted in yellow at the Coliseo El Salitre (7,000 fans), the home side of Colombia gave no chance to Peru: 3-0 (25-23, 25-12, 25-12).

Given that Argentina also dominated their 2nd round match (3-0 vs. Venezuela), both Colombia and the “Las Panteras“ have a perfect score, 6 points and no sets lost. Thus, the mutual encounter between the 2 undefeated sides, tomorrow, will reveal the name of the team that will compete in the Tokyo Olympics from the South American Qualification Tournament.

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.
