The current Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship bronze medalists Galatasaray extended the contract with an Estonian player Oliver Venno.


A 29-year-old Estonia national team member Venno will stay in Galatasaray for one more season. The opposite hitter came to the Istanbul team, who finished the 2018/19 season as the bronze medalists in the national championship and runners-up in the CEV Cup, a year ago.

Venno is a 2-time CEV European League winner with Estonia. He also claimed titles in the Slovenian, German and Austrian Championship once apiece and won national Cups in Estonia, Slovenia and Germany. Venno is also a 2-time MEVZA Cup gold medalist.

Individually, Venno was named Best Outside Hitter of the 2018 CEV European League and Best Scorer of the 2019 CEV Cup (188 points).

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

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
