Paweł Zagumny, legendary setter of the Polish Men’s volleyball National Team, decided to finish his professional career at the end of current season!

 

A 39-year-old Polish iconic player said goodbye to the jersey of the national team in an exhibition held in Katowice, in September last year. Now, it is time to completely retire from professional volleyball, as “Sportowe Fakty” reported.

Zagumny began his volleyball career with MKS MDK Warsaw before joining the team from the same city, AZS Politechnika Warszawska. Since Zagumny is the member of this club at the moment, his farewell match will be played at its “Torwar” gymnasium, on April 8 (14:45 CET).

Besides above mentioned teams, the setter has competed with Czarni Radom, Morze Szczecin, Kioene Padova, AZS Indykpol Olsztyn, Panathinaikos Athens and Zaksa Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

On a club level, Zagumny won five silver and four bronze medals in PlusLiga and two trophies in the Polish Cup.

Internationally, the setter collected 427 caps and won gold and silver medal in the FIVB World Championship one-time each, gold medal in the CEV European Championship and FIVB World League one-time each as well. He took part in four Olympic Games (Atlanta, Athens, Beijing and London).

Zagumny has received many individual awards, such as for the best setter in the 2008 Olympic Games, 2006 FIVB World Championship, 2009 CEV European Championship and 2007 CEV Champions League Final Six.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
