The newcomers in the Turkish men’s volleyball Championship, Haliliye Belediye, strengthened their roster with three Cuban players of which one is the national team member of this Caribbean country.


Haliliye, who were leaders of one of the Turkish second division play-off groups last season at the moment of the season cancelation due to the coronavirus, were awarded a spot in the top division. Right after learning that, a club from the south of the country started composing a respectable roster.

After hiring several domestic players, Haliliye brought in three foreigners, all three of Cuban nationality. The only national team player (a starter) of this Caribbean country from the trio is Adrián Goide. Last season, a 22-year-old setter didn’t compete on a club level, and from January he didn’t play at all due to shoulder injury which he sustained in the NORCECA Olympic Qualifier.

The remained two Cubans that came to the Efeler Ligi newcomers are a 25-year-old opposite hitter Yordan Bisset (Narbonne, France) and a 29-year-old outside hitter Yosvany Hernández (Cheonan Hyundai Capital Skywalkers, South Korea).

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
