The eight-time Greek women’s volleyball champions Olympiacos S.F.P. hired legendary Brazilian player Mariana Costa ‘Mari Paraíba’.


Olympiacos announced the start of their collaboration with Mari Paraíba, a long-time former Brazil National Team member.

Throughout her career, the outside hitter, who is soon to fall into the category of veterans, left her home country to play overseas on several occasions and then returned. A 34-year-old Mari Paraíba has played in the top teams of her homeland, concluded with Dentil/Praia Clube last season, winning one championship title. In Europe, she won the Swiss Championship once. With the ‘Seleção’, Mari Paraíba took the South American Championship in 2015 and FIVB World Grand Prix in 2016.

In addition to the Brazilian, Olympiacos signed another player from Latin America in the last couple of days. A 30-year-old outside hitter Wilma Salas joined the Piraeus-based club. Cuban player came from Poland’s Grupa Azoty Chemik Police and after an injury that sidelined her from competing since October.

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
