The Cuban-born player Camejo applied for the change of the sports nationality in order to play for Russia National Team, a year ago, and it is no longer news. Furthermore, by a decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, on June 13, 2018, Camejo was granted Russian citizenship soon afterward.

The decision of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) on his change of the sports nationality is still pending. In case the decision is positive, Camejo will gain the right to compete for “Zbornaya“ in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo because a two-year waiting period set by the FIVB when a player changes sports nationality will expire just in time for Camejo to play the Tokyo Games.

The news is that the current club of an outside hitter, Zenit Saint-Petersburg, informed that Camejo came into the possession of the Russian passport and officially became the citizen of the Russian Federation. He will even take part in the voting on the elections of the governor of Saint-Petersburg on September 8.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
