Let’s go back to 1999 and the European Championship for a while…

During the game European Championship 1999 semifinal game, Italy played vs. Yugoslavia!

At the result 22-21 in the fourth set for Italy, Vladimir Grbic scored an ace to tie the score, however, the referee decided to give the point to Italy, explaining that the ball touched the net. According to that rules, if the ball touches the net from the serve, the opposite side gets the point.

Later, Italy won the game and in the final took the gold medal. 

The Yugoslavian team watched the video again after the end of the championship and confirmed that there was no touch of the net.

After this serve, the FIVB decided to change the serve rule!

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
