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.

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Kosheleva was without a doubt the most impressive player of the match Reply

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply
