It's hectic in the ranks of Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship silver medalists Fenerbahçe Opet.


The arrivals and departures occur on a daily basis in the ranks of the Turkish giants Fenerbahçe, the current Sultanlar Ligi vice-champions.

We already wrote of the signings of Russian wunderkind Arina Fedorovtseva and Serbian international Mina Popović. Fedorovtseva’s compatriot Anna Lazareva is a new reinforcement of the ’Yellow Angels’. A 24-year-old opposite hitter came from Korea’s IBK Industrial Bank Altos for which she excelled last season, having a couple of 40+ outputs and finishing the V-League season as the second top scorer with 867 points.

Sadly for Fenerbahçe fans, Lazareva came instead of Cuban (with Turkish citizenship) star Melissa Vargas to whom the Istanbul club said goodbye. American outside hitter Kelsey Robinson followed Vargas’ footsteps.

Fenerbahçe extended contracts with several important players, such as Naz Aydemir Akyol, Dicle Nur Babat, and Cansu Çetin.

despite fener fans want the club to renew with both players, they are sent, proving how badly the club management are infected by zorana-virus. :D

as for rasic, what I've heard is,she quits volleyball because she wants to be mother.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
