This boy might be a player to shine in the world Volleyball sky in years to come…

 

Maicon dos Santos França is only 15 years old but is 2.12m tall, which is an unusual height for senior Volleyball let alone for his age group! His stature and way of playing at school tournaments did not go unnoticed by Brazilian Volleyball scouts. Fluminense F.C. won the battle for the prospect player and he joined their youth team, playing as a middle blocker and opposite hitter.

Maicon is summoned to prepare with Brazil national team for the upcoming FIVB Boys’ U19 World Championship, on August 21-30, and will likely get on the final list for the tournament in Tunisia. Given that he is only 15 years old, he will grow a few more centimeters for sure. Only a year ago, he was 2.08m tall…

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply
