All other participants of the 2016/17 CEV Champions League Final Four have 3 titles altogether... At the same time, Dinamo Moscow have 11 Champions League trophies in their cupboard!


 

Dinamo Moscow is the most successful women's volleyball club in Europe. It is that simple. This team have won 11 Champions League trophies (competition record) and 18 national titles in Russia, counting the USSR era.

Dinamo Moscow have established quite a domination in European volleyball back in the 60s and 70s. They won all of their 11 Champions League trophies in just 17 years, from 1960 to 1977!

But, then the club faced a tough period. The Russian powerhouse even seized to exist in 1992 and remained in "sleep mode" until 2004 when the club was reestablished. Of course, everyone expected that the European giant will quickly come back to the throne, however Dinamo Moscow haven't succeeded in winning any Champions League title ever since.

They were close in 2007 and 2009, but in both occasions they suffered a tie-break defeat in the competition finals. And both time they were defeated by the Italian team.

Now Dinamo have another chance to break their own record and to win the 12th trophy in the CEV Champions League. But, on that road they will once again play against the Italian team... The Russians will face the hosts of the Final Four Imoco Volley Conegliano already the semi-finals.

Will they now finally manage to get past the Italian team? The competition top scorer Nataliya Goncharova and her teammates firmly believe that they can do that.

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
