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.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
