Fenerbahçe Opet have hired Brazilian female volleyball prodigy Ana Cristina de Souza ‘Aninha’ for the next season.


Fenerbahçe formed a duo of outside hitters for 2021/22 of, probably, the two most talented players in this position in the world.

After signing Russian Arina Fedorovtseva, the ‘Yellow Angels’ brought Ana Cristina de Souza ‘Aninha’. A 17-year-old Brazilian prospect first drew attention with her successful performance in youth categories. At the 2018 FIVB U18 South American Championship and the 2019 FIVB U18 World Championship, Aninha won the Best Opposite Spiker and Best Spiker awards.

Last season, she was selected as the Best Spiker of the Brazilian League with her successful play in Sesc RJ Flamengo in which she was the top scorer in the competition of the two Brazil National Team members Lorenne and Drussyla.

Aninha is a daughter of a former ‘Seleção’ volleyball player Cecília ‘Ciça’ and basketball player Alex Souza.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
