One of the best Brazilian female setters ever interrupts her one and a half year long retirement for Spanish top division team.


A 46-year-old Hélia Souza ’Fofão’, one-time Olympic champion and four-time FIVB World Grand Prix winner with Brazilian Women's National Team, ceazed playing professionally in May 2005 on a farewell match.

But, after more than year and a half without stepping on the court, Fofão accepted the offer from a Spanish club CV JAV Olímpico Gran Canaria for the second part of the season 2016/2017.

Brazilian setter is not the only reinforcement of a ninth-placed team in the Spanish Superliga. Polish receiver Laura Tomsia, who spent last season competing in Italian Division 2 team Beng Rovigo, also arrived.

Re: @Logan Tom
Ni Yan is the best blocker in this competition. Her average block per set in the highest. And she scores more points than Anna Danesi. Ni Yan definitely is the 1st Middle Blocker in this competition. She deserved the title. Reply
