Chinese outside hitter Zhu Ting, a one-time Olympic Games winner and probably the most popular female Volleyball player in the world at the moment, still did not choose in which club she will continue her career. One thing is sure, she will play in her home country...

 

Sohu reported that tthree teams in China are battling for Zhu’s signature for the next season after she parted ways with the Turkish side VakifBank in order to better prepare for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. These teams are Beijing, Tianjin and Guangdong. And it seems logical knowing that these three sides, plus Shanghai, are only clubs in the Chinese Super League that have budgets to cover a transfer of such a player like Zhu. Shanghai are not in contention for the signature of the Rio Olympics MVP given that they already hired a foreign duo, which means that Zhu would not have enough room to be the main attacking option.

Recall that before moving to VakifBank in 2016, Zhu defended the colors of Henan, who were far from the top teams in the Super League last season.

As for the trio of clubs that battles for hiring Zhu, according to Sohu, Tianjin and Guangdong have the most chances from the point of view of the lineups they currently have. That is because Beijing have signed an American outside hitter Bartsch and kept the country’s national team member Liu Xiaotong who is playing on the same position as Zhu. Beijing also kept opposite hitter and another China national team player Zeng Chunlei. It is obvious how crowded it will be in Beijing next season in terms of who will get the most balls in the attack.

Tianjin might have an upper hand in acquiring Zhu given that the club is based in the birthplace of China head coach Lang Ping. This means that the expert would have a chance to make sure on Zhu's shape on regular basis.

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
