The runners-up of the Russian women’s volleyball championship, Lokomotiv, started to compose the roster for the next season.

 

Lokomotiv, who wittingly lost the top spot in the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch regular season, which turned out to cost them the title as the competition ended due to coronavirus pandemic (regular-season winners Dinamo-Kazan won the title), made two contract renewals. Back-up outside hitters, both Russia National Team members, will stay in the Kaliningrad team one more season: Tatyana Yurinskaya and Irina Voronkova.

Last season, they were overshadowed by Margarita Kurilo and Tatyana Kosheleva. Lokomotiv fans are certainly eager to hear if the latter will keep wearing the jersey of their club in 2020/21 but it’s yet unknown.

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...
