The 2018/19 Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff quarterfinalists Dinamo Moscow hired one of the best outside hitters in the world – Taylor Sander!

 

The United States national team member Sander will continue his career in seven-time Russian Championship winners Dinamo Moscow. Sander is a one-time FIVB World League and FIVB World Cup gold medalist as well as the 2016 Rio Olympics bronze medalist. A 27-year-old outside hitter came to the club from the Russian capital from the Brazilian league runners-up Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei.

Dinamo Moscow made several more signings that will definitely make them Superliga title contenders in the 2019/20 season: the Canadian outside hitter Stephen Maar (Revivre Axopower Milano, Italy), middle blocker Maksim Belogortsev (Yaroslavich Yaroslavl), and setters Cheslavsk Sventitskis (Nova Novokuybyshevsk) and Pavel Pankov (Zenit Saint Petersburg).

Dinamo Moscow parted ways with outside hitters - Dutchman Dick Kooy, Stanislav Eremin and Aleksandr Markin, setters – the Pole Grzegorz Pająk and Valentin Bezrukov, middle blocker Dmitriy Shcherbinin, and opposite hitter Pavel Kruglov.

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

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

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

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... :-(
