The 2018/19 Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists Galatasaray HDI Sigorta held a ceremony in which they signed contracts with three newcomers and renewed with one.

 

Olesia Rykhliuk, Anthi Vasilantonaki, Gizem Karadayı, and Derya Çayırgan will defend the colors of Galatasaray next season!

The Ukrainian opposite hitter Rykhliuk (two-time Ukrainian Championship, one-time Korean Championship, and four-time Swiss Championship winner) signed a two-year contract with Galatasaray, coming from Beşiktaş. Rykhliuk is also known as the “scoring machine”. One of her most prominent individual awards were Best Scorer and Best Opposite Hitter in the 2015 FIVB Club World Championship.

Another foreign opposite hitter came to the Istanbul side. Greek Vasilantonaki signed a one-year deal, coming from Lardini Filottrano, Italy.

The libero Derya tied herself to Galatasaray with a two-year contract. Last season, she played in Halkbank.

The Istanbul team renewed the deal with their captain Gizem. A two-time CEV Champions League and one-time FIVB Club World Championship winner will defend the colors of Galatasaray as a libero for two more years.

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
