The 12th placed team in the Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship last season, Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia, strengthened its squad by engaging Swan Ngapeth.


A 27-year-old Swan Ngapeth came to Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia from Top Volley Latina, another Italian Championship side.

The French outside hitter is a part of a volleyball family: he is the son of a former player and head coach Eric Ngapeth and brother of Earvin Ngapeth, one of the best players in the world who currently plays in Zenit Kazan, Russia.

Vibo signed several more players in the summer transfer window earlier: Brazilian opposite hitter Aboubacar Neto “Abouba” (EMS Taubaté Funvic, Brazil), American outside hitter Torey DeFalco (Long Beach State 49ers, NCAA), French outside hitter Timothée Carle (Ajaccio, France), French middle blocker Barthélémy Chinenyeze (Tours, France), and libero Marco Rizzo (Vero Volley Monza).

The club extended with the setter Sebastiano Marsili, and middle blockers Marco Vitelli and Stefano Mengozzi.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

Thailand win title in Women’s Volleyball at SEA Games for 12th successive time

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
