The reigning Turkish Women’s Volleyball league champions VakıfBank continued with their transfer activities for the new season and caused an earthquake in the market!


VakıfBank contracted one of the best outside hitters in the world at the moment, Gabriela Guimarães “Gabi”, who played for the Brazilian team Itambé/Minas last season and won the championship title.

The name of a 25-year-old Brazil national team member has mostly been tied with SESC RJ whose colors she defended for six straight years (2012-2018) before joining Minas last season.

On a club level, Gabi won the Brazilian Superliga seven times, South American Club Championship five times, and Brazilian Cup and Super Cup three times each. With Brazil national team, she won three gold medals in the FIVB World Grand Prix and two gold medals in the South American Championship.

Individually, Gabi was named South American Championship and South American Club Championship MVP once each, Best Outside Hitter in the FIVB Club World Championship twice, and in the South American Championship and South American Club Championship once each.

[@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

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
