The 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff quarterfinalists PGE Skra Bełchatów appointed the new head coach.


The nine-time Polish champions Skra will be headed by a very young coach in the 2019/20 season. A 34-year-old Michał Gogol replaced Italian expert Roberto Piazza who decided to fully commit to working with the Netherlands Men’s national team.

Gogol spent most of his coaching career, which started in 2008, as an assistant coach (Tauron AZS Częstochowa, Stocznia Szczecin, and Poland U23 Men’s national team). He also performed a job of a statistician in Asseco Resovia Rzeszów. In the last three seasons, Gogol has worked as a head coach: firstly in Stocznia Szczecin for two seasons (2016-2018) and then in Indykpol AZS Olsztyn from which he came to Skra.

Although he will be the youngest head coach in the PlusLiga next season, Gogol has already won two gold medals in the FIVB World Championship (2014 and 2018) as a member of Poland senior Men’s national team coaching staff.

This is probably record win in Volleyball: Vietnam give away only 5 points to rivals in entire match!

I have seen taller Indian women (Maldives). I guess none of them showed up at the court. You know you are in trouble when you are spiking up instead of down. Reply

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply
