The Italy Men’s Volleyball National Team duo Vettori and Lanza will play in China next season.


The Chinese vice-champions Shanghai reached an agreement with two members of the Italy National Team for the next season. Namely, these players are Luca Vettori and Filippo Lanza, both in contention for a place on the roster for the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo.

A 30-year-old Vettori has been a member of the ’Azzurri’ since 2012 and just one year later, he was named Best Spiker of the CEV European Championship. The opposite hitter spent the last season in Leo Shoes Modena.

As for Lanza, also of the age of 30, he started wearing Italy’s jersey the same year as Vettori. In 2013, he was named Best Outside Spiker of the FIVB World Grand Champions Cup. Lanza defended the colors of the two clubs last season. He first played for Vero Volley Monze and then moved to France’s Chaumont for the playoffs.

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
