Yoandy Leal posted a quite interesting status on Instagram in which it was visible he was displeased because the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) didn’t award him for the MVP of the 2019 Club World Championship, so his teammate Bruno Rezende “Bruninho” had to do instead it of them.

 

Bruninho’s gesture of handing the award for the Most Valuable Player of the 2019 Club World Championship to a teammate Leal, after he previously refused to accept it, was a gesture of pure sportsmanship. The Cuban-born player expressed his gratitude to the Brazilian setter on Instagram.

 

“The merit is often unrecognized, but I keep doing my best because an award doesn’t erase everything I’ve done so far in my career. Thank you Bruninho for acknowledging my performance in this championship since FIVB didn’t recognize it. I’m very happy for contributing to the first world title of Lube. Thank you to everyone who cheered for us!” Leal posted.

Bruninho didn’t want to comment on his gesture but couldn’t hide happiness of winning the title for the best club in the world with Cucine Lube Civitanova.

“It’s a special victory. This team was brave. In times of pressure, it remained united and deserved to raise the trophy. It was the only one that I still missed, so I thank my teammates and also those of the past for helping me win everything I have won over the years,” Best Setter of the tournament stated.

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
