Galatasaray HDI Sigorta have returned to the top of the charts of the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Galatasaray HDI Sigorta recovered from losing to Ziraat Bankası four days ago, by which their six-game unbeaten run came to an end, and defeated Spor Toto in the big match of Round 8 of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season. Galatasaray beat former leaders in the charts, who remained without their top scorer Daudi Okello (moved to play in South Korea), in straight sets: 3-0 (25-16, 25-23, 25-20). Estonian Oliver Venno absolutely overshadowed all the other players on the court, chipping in with 26 points for Galatasaray, of which 6 points came from the service, while he had a 71% attack (20/28). Ali Deniz Yılmaz scored 11 points for Spor Toto. Galatasaray took over the provisional lead in the charts with 7-1 (20 points). In order to stay there until the next round, they will need a defeat of Ziraat Bankası to Bursa Büyükşehir Belediyesi in the match tomorrow.

The second-placed Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta (7-1; 20 points) extended their winning streak to four games, while Halkbank recorded their third successive victory but still hold the place not suitable for such a powerhouse. They came in sixth with 4-4 and 13 points.

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.
