Francesca Piccinini is a new player of Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship side Unet E-Work Busto Arsizio!

 

The Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile members Busto have welcomed the country’s and the world’s volleyball icon Piccinini, who has chosen them for her sensational return to volleyball. The 40-year-old outside hitter reinforced the squad coached by Stefano Lavarini for a season finale in which Busto will fight for the national title (currently 2nd in the charts).

After more than 26 years of her professional career and as many as 7 CEV Champions League trophies on her account, one FIVB World Championship and 2 CEV EuroVolleys won, Piccinini saddened the volleyball world by announcing retirement in September. Piccinini’s re-activation definitely supports speculations of her desire to fight for a place in the national team for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which would be the 5th time that she appears in such an event (she previously played all Olympics from 2000 to 2012).

@BrazilVolleyGirl
Your racist comment has no place in a forum about sports.
I want to see an Italian team composed of the best athletes available, who will advance the sport forward and give us the best displays of athleticism, sportsmanship and dedication.

WorldOfVolley should do a better job of reviewing comments.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
