Prospect American opposite hitter Jordan Thompson joined Fenerbahçe Opet, the Turkish women’s volleyball club announced.

 

The 22-year-old U.S. National Team opposite hitter Thompson will play for Fenerbahçe until the end of the 2019/20 season. The youngster came to the Turkish team from the University of Cincinnati whose volleyball team, the Bearcats, was eliminated in the 2019 NCAA Division I Championship regional semifinals by Penn State.

Thompson drew attention with her performance in the International Olympic Qualifier but even more by the level of play in the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League when she scored 33 points in the final against Brazil. Recently, Thompson broke the single-game scoring record of the American Athletic Conference and went down the history of the NCAA Division I.

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
