Poland Men’s Volleyball national team head coach Vital Heynen crossed out 2 players from the preliminary list and announced the final list of players that will compete in the Olympic qualification in Gdańsk (August 9-11).

 

After sparring games against Belgium and the Netherlands, Heynen decided to cross out one outside hitter and one middle blocker: Bartosz Bednorz and Jakub Kochanowski.

Whilst the decision not to take Kochanowski to the qualifications was not such a surprise knowing the fierce competition that he had on his position in the national team, the deletion of Bednorz was a bit shocking. A 25-year-old player was the leader of Poland during the Final Six of the 2019 FIVB Nations League in Chicago.

The newly formed composition of Poland national team will play the Wagner Memorial in the next couple of days prior to the qualifications for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Setters: Fabian Drzyzga, Grzegorz Łomacz.

Opposite hitters: Dawid Konarski, Maciej Muzaj.

Middle blockers: Piotr Nowakowski, Mateusz Bieniek, Karol Kłos.

Outside hitters: Wilfredo León, Michał Kubiak, Bartosz Kwolek, Aleksander Śliwka, Artur Szalpuk.

Liberos: Paweł Zatorski, Damian Wojtaszek.

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

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
