Turkish Women’s Volleyball team Fenerbahçe Opet strengthened its squad with 2 players from big rivals Vakıfbank.

 

A duo from Vakıfbank, the reigning champions of Turkey, Meliha - Gizem reinforced a side they beat in the last Sultanlar Ligi playoff finals, Fenerbahçe. Both players are the country’s national team members.

The Bosnian-born Meliha İsmailoğlu already wore the jersey of the ’Yellow Angels’. A 27-year-old outside hitter was Fenerbahçe’s member between 2014 and 2017, winning 2 Turkish Championships, and one Turkish Cup and Super Cup each during that time.

The other player that came in a package with Meliha from Vakıfbank to Fenerbahçe is a 27-year-old Gizem Örge. A long-time libero of the ’Yellow-and-Black’ (from 2013 to 2021) won 3 FIVB Clubs World Championships, 2 CEV European Champions League, 5 Turkish Leagues, 3 Turkish Cups, and 3 Turkish Super Cups in their jersey.

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
