ITA M: Alessandro Farina selling cheese!

8039 0

Six-time champion of Italy, Alessandro Farina now sells salami and cheese.

 

This summer Farina retired at age of 38, after two seasons spent in Vibo Valentia. With his wife Elena he opened the store on wheels:

It was a life choice. I do not regret at all because volleyball gave me so much but now I have a family and I wanted to spend more time with them

Until a few months ago Farina was one of the strongest “defenders”in the Italian volleyball. He won six titles in Serie A1 with Sisley Treviso, four Italian Cup, three Champions League and many other CEV trophies. He played 609 matches for Sisley in 14th seasons.

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
