So many big names are leaving Turkish Women’s Volleyball these days… Jordan Larson joined the list!

 

The Turkish Championship runners-up Eczacıbaşı VitrA announced parting ways with their captain Jordan Larson after five seasons!

One of the most prominent names of the Women’s volleyball in the world nowadays won numerous trophies with the İstanbul powerhouse since joining the club in 2014. Certainly, the most important are: the CEV Champions title, which she claimed once, the FIVB Club World Championship, which she won two times, and CEV Cup, clinching one time. In addition, Larson lifted trophies in the Turkish Cup and Super Cup, once each. Individually, a 32-year-old American outside hitter was recognized MVP of the CEV Champions League and FIVB Club World Championship, one-time apiece. Rumors say that Larson will go to play in China next season.

Eczacıbaşı also informed their fans that they have brought back four players from loans: MVP of the 2017 FIVB U23 World Championship Hande Baladın (Galatasaray HDI Sigorta), Yasemin Güveli, Saliha Şahin (both Karayolları), and Buse Melis Kara (Kameroğlu Beylıkduzu Voleybol Ihtisas).

Recall that VakıfBank said goodbye to four foreign players yesterday.

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...
