RUS W: Goncharova – “It’s wrong to honor football players for reaching quarterfinals”

1292 0

Nataliya Goncharova, the opposite of Dinamo Moscow and Russian women’s national team have disagreed with the decision of the Ministry of Sports to give the award of “Honored Masters of Sports” to all the players of football national team.

 

Well, I was surprised when the Russian national team football players were given the title of Honored Master of Sports for reaching the quarter-finals at the World Championship. This is unfair for other sports. I agree with many athletes who said the same thing. Simply, it was wrong. It turns out that unequal attitude to the other sports. Ones need to win the World Cup or the Olympics to get this title, while others need to get into the quarter-finals. Winning the World Cup or the Olympic Games is a big deal,“ says Goncharova for RIA Novosti.

She has also added that one day maybe she will accept the offer to take in some photo-shooting.

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
