Players for the first round of Grand Prix which will be held in Brazil are:

Setters: Anna Matienko, Ekaterina Pankova

Middle blockers: Maria Borodakova, Irina Zaryazhko, Anastasia Shlyakhovaya

Recivers: Tatiana Kosheleva, Alexandra Pasynkova, Victoriia Chaplina, Natalia Malykh

Opposites: Natalia Obmochaeva, Daria Isaeva

Libero: Anna Malova

Marichev was very worried about injuries that his players suffered.

„Unfortunately Dianska won’t be able to play in Brazil. Originally we announced 14 players but the two girls can’t help us. In best case scenario, Orlova will play in the second half of August because of the broken finger. Svetlana Kryuchkova is still worried about her elbow injury so she decided not to risk her health and take some rest too”.

Even with injuries accounted, Russia is still considered as one of the top favourites to win Grand Prix.
