After seven championship titles in a row, UPCN didn't retain the trophy again. Personal Bolivar have finally managed to dethrone them, after winning the game 5 in the playoff finals 3-0 (25-23, 25-23, 25-19).

 

Even though the game ended in three sets, it was not an easy win for the home side. The first two sets were very exciting and fortunately for the home crowd, Bolivar have managed to win them 25-23, 25-23, to put the hands on the trophy. 

They needed one more set to defeat UPCN and to clinch the championship title. Away side almost didn't give any resistance, Bolivar took the advantage to win the third set 25-19 for a big celebration of the home fans.

The Australian giant Thomas Edgar was the top scorer with 20 points while on the other side Nikolay Uchikov had 16.

She played for Atom Trefl Sopot (not Gdańsk). And Atom Trefl doesn't exist anymore. So she had to leave :) Reply

Fans, which volleyball rules you would change if you were in charge?

Re: @Axe in basketball it is quite easy to have a rather small off-bounds space, like 3 meters must be enough, because when the ball is out of bounds it is out of play. In volleyball it's not the case and if you watch volleyball alot you can see that despite the quite large space around the field, players are still getting hold back by commercial panels, sometimes directly behind it tables with people doing a job which is involved by the game. And it's not like lots of people can enjoy that same experience only a few hundreds of people maybe on the the first few front-rows and not the other thousands of people present there.
If the empty space between playing court and 'obstacles' will be enlarged then players might be more motivated to chase off-bound balls and save alot (almost) dozens more than that they mostly can do today. The seats of the audience don't even need to be further away from the playing field, just those commercial panels and benches with working people behind them pushed all the way back to the walls between the court and the seats. If you look at football (soccer if you're American) there is the audience even further away from the playing field even though it is the case that a ball out of bounds equals out of play too. There you never seem to have a decline of popularity of the game.
