1509 0

For the fifth time in his career, Matthew Anderson has been named the best volleyball indoor player of the year in the United States.

 

“I couldn’t be happier,” he said. “Finding the balance between training and rest was the biggest challenge this season. With very limited time off, and now age, the balance between training and rest is getting harder to find.”

Anderson started 45 out of 70 sets in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) and 40 out of 45 sets at the World Championship. He finished the season with 327 kills (48% hitting efficiency), 35 aces and 24 blocks.

 “In 2019, I am looking forward to fighting for more medals and qualifying for the 2020 Olympics with some of my closest friends,” he said. “We have another jam-packed competition schedule and it will take all of us to accomplish our goals.”

Congratulations Matt.

Recall that two female players were named the best in the USA for 2018.

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
