After the penultimate round of the 2020 South American Women’s Volleyball Club Championship in Uberlândia (Brazil), it’s clear that the two Brazilian clubs will decide the winners of the competition in the mutual encounter.


Brazilian champions and vice-champions, Itambé/Minas and Dentil/Praia Clube, will decide the winners of the 2020 Sudamericano de Clubes femenino and the owners of a continental spot at the FIVB Club World Championship in December.

With the sweaty victory over Argentinean titleholders Boca Juniors that came in the tie-break and after the lead in sets of 2-0, the hosts Praia reached the third consecutive triumph (no defeats): 3-2 (25-18, 26-24, 21-25, 22-25, 15-11). The Dominican Brayelin Martínez was chosen as the best player of the match. Losing one point to Boca resulted in handing over the top spot in the charts to the defending champions Minas. However, these two will face for the title on the last day.

In the second game of Day 4, Minas kept the perfect record as well (3-0) and continued without losing a single set in the tournament: 3-0 vs. San Lorenzo. Despite a defeat, Argentinean San Lorenzo secured a second consecutive bronze medal in the competition.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
