VINTAGE VOLLEYBALL: Historical World Championship 1970 for Germany and Bulgaria (VIDEO)

4027 0

After 48 years Bulgaria will host the FIVB World Championship and everyone hope that they will repeat the success from 1970 and play in the final of the competition.

Bulgaria last hosted the World Championships in 1970 and that year they played in the final against East Germany. After five sets the opponents won 3-2 (15-11, 13-15, 15-7, 4-15, 15-13) their first and only gold medal in the World Champ.

This Championship was historical for both teams because that was the only time that Germany and Bulgaria played in the final. 

From that year both National teams played twice the matches for the third place. Bulgaria won both their matches (1986 and 2006) while Germany took the medal 2014.

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
