GOLDEN EL W: Bulgaria and Hungary will play for gold medal

422 0

Bulgaria and the hosts Hungary will play for the gold medal at the CEV Golden European League for women.

   

Both teams besides the finals secured their berths in the inaugural FIVB Challenger Cup whose eventual winners will participate in the 2019 edition of the elite FIVB Volleyball Nations League and which is scheduled for June 20-25 in Lima, Peru.

In the semifinals, Bulgaria defeated Finland in straight sets (25-21, 25-13, 25-14) and will try to claim their first gold. Until now they five times played in the final tournament and won two silver medals and three bronze medals.

Hristina Ruseva, team captain of Bulgaria:We played a very good match today; I am extremely happy with the way we played. I am obviously happy because we won the match in straight sets and we showed that we did not have any ups and downs throughout the whole match. We were well prepared and focussed from the very first moment. Now we look forward to knowing the name of our opponent in the final.” 

Silvana Chausheva top-scored for Bulgaria with 14 points while Gergana Dimitrova and Nasya Dimitrova scored 13 points each. Team captain Pauliina Vilponen was the only Finnish player to record a double-digit with 10 points.

 

In the second semi-final in Budapest, Hungary outplayed Czech Republic with 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-19) who suffered their first defeat in this year’s competition of EL. We must mention that this was the first matchup between Hungary and the Czech Republic since September 2012, when Hungary lost 1-3 to the Czechs in a EuroVolley qualifier played in Budaörs. 

Greta Szakmary and Renata Sandor were the top scorers of the home side with 21 and 18 points, respectively – as Michaela Mlejnkova registered 18 for the Czech Republic.

Match for the third place between Finland and the Czech Republic will be on 17:00 by local time while the big final is scheduled for 20:00.

VNL M: Italy produce 500th official win, Canada heavily shock Brazil, Iran sweep Poland in tension-filled game

During VLN there is only one team which really surprises the audience in all over the world - Japan. They won over Italy, Germany etc.. Although much smaller players then rest of VNL, they have played very good. Moreover there is a phenomenal talent 18 years, 186 cm, Y. Nishida, an opposite position... Vertical jump cca 100 cm.. In past K.Kiraly, 191 cm, jumped cca 90 cm, was similar dynamic player.. However this time TV audience could enjoy volleyball. The Mikasa white ball OG 1984, 1988 was perfect visible and recognizable.
Unfortunately due to of same firm and a wrong FIVB decision, we can not enjoy these matches now... Volleyball reminds a pantomime - without a slow motion replay is almost not possible to watch volleyball since 1998. Compare with the FIFA World Cup 2018 football ball... Such colors and design should be used also in volleyball... Reply
