Turkey will host the European Women’s Volleyball Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, Gian Luca Pasini revealed in his blog on La Gazzetta dello Sport.

 

Although the information is not yet official, Pasini wrote in his blog that the Turkish Volleyball Federation was chosen to organize the European Women’s Qualifier (January 2020) for the Tokyo Olympics.

The continental qualifications are final tournaments in which national teams can earn a promotion to the Olympics in Tokyo. Just like in the Intercontinental qualifications, only the tournament winners will advance to the event in the Japanese capital.

Maybe it's still time for Turkey to hire Zhu Ting to switch country for one tournament, as a Turk? We will call her Meliha Ting. Remember, just one tournament.

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...
