The games of Genter Vôlei/Bauru in the Brazilian Superliga might be closely watched next season in case they hire the first-ever player who has competed in both Men’s and Women’s volleyball competition - Tifanny!


Last season was the debut season for the Brazilian receiver/opposite Tifanny Pereira de Abreu, who underwent a sex change in 2014, in the Women’s volleyball. She has spent it in Italian Division 2 side Golem Software Palmi, causing a lot of commotion as the players of other clubs in the league expressed their disagreement with the fact she was allowed to compete.

In the 2017/18, Tifanny (born as Rodrigo Pereira de Abreu) might wear the jersey of Bauru and compete in her homeland for the first time since she became a woman and for the first time in any volleyball top division.

At the moment, she only trains with Bauru who gave her a chance to recover from a left-hand surgery…

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

If Tomkom is kept for next season (though that seems unlikely in my opinion). Fenerbache should think of getting one of her younger NT member as a receiver/wing spiker back up. Even though they aren't as tall as their European counter part, they can receive well and attack too. I'm sure they would be cheaper to higher than most other European options or are they? lol...And they already have a connection with Nootsara, so maybe they can play some fast balls every now and then to score a few quick points too.
