The winner of the men’s volleyball tournament at the Rio Olympics with the Brazil National Team, the 36-year-old Felipe Fonteles “Lipe“, will play in Japan again after 11 years.


According to Gian Luca Pasini, the 2016 Rio Olympic Games winner Lipe will strengthen Japan’s titleholders JTEKT Stings in which he’ll replace Bulgarian Matey Kaziyski.

The veteran outside hitter spent the last season in his home country, wearing the jersey of EMS Taubaté Funvic, and will return to playing in Japan after 11 years (the Panasonic Panthers 2007 – 2009, won the national title in 2008).

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
