Turkey have won the Balkan Championship U 17 for girls after beating Romania in the final 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-22)


It was a great and uncertain game but fortunately for the Turkish fans, their team won it and took the gold medal. 

In a game for the third place, Bulgaria defeated Serbia 3-2.

Turkey received two individual awards and it's interesting that one went into the hands of a very talented libero Gülce Güçtekin. It's not her first award, since she already got an award at the EuroVolley U17 last year and this time she was again one the best players of the team throughout the tournament.

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
