The debut of Wilfredo León for Poland Men’s Volleyball national team is certainly a hot topic this week. One of his close friends might follow his footsteps and apply for Polish citizenship as well!

 

Wilfredo León had the entire hall in Opole cheering for him in his debut for Poland. Among those fans was his compatriot and close friend, who competes in the Polish top division – David Fiel.

A 25-year-old middle blocker, who is currently a member of 9-time PlusLiga champions PGE Skra Bełchatów, was deeply touched by the way León has been supported in his way towards getting Polish citizenship and gaining the right to play for Poland national team.

“I feel very excited to see my ’brother’ making his dream come true! He’s an amazing player and I saw him working hard to achieve this goal! So, I can feel very happy just as he feels! And I wish him all the best - and congratulations!“ Fiel, who won the 2014 Pan-American Cup and took part in the 2014 FIVB World Championship with Cuba national team, stated in an interview for Skra website.

He was asked if he was also thinking of getting Polish citizenship and he admitted that he was considering it.

“I like the question! (laughs). To be honest, soon I’ll be here for 4 years, so it’s something that I’m thinking about all the time. I really like Poland, its culture, people and how important for them is volleyball. I feel that my present and future is here, in Poland. I have a big part of my life here: my wife, my career and, for sure, our family soon. I hope that, as soon as possible, you’ll be able to call me the Polish guy with Cuban heart!“ Fiel, who married a Polish woman in 2015, added.

OQT M: Party in Bari - Italy wreck Serbia to punch last Tokyo ticket from International Qualifier

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
