USA W: Kimberly Hill – „This calendar is ridiculous“

A few days after playing in the CEV Champions League, Kimberly Hill went on vacation.

 

However, she won’t spend that much time on vacation since she has to join the U.S. national team.

She is missing the start of the Volleyball Nations League but on the other hand, she needs to rest a little bit because the clubs’ season was very long. Since there is almost no time to rest, Kimberly Hill took the opportunity to criticize the calendar:

It’s ridiculous. Please, FIVB and CEV, change this calendar. The situation is unsustainable and does not prioritize the athletes,“ writes Hill.

Well, Kimberly Hill is not the only player that complains about calendar. Bruno Rezende leads the group of players who are not agreeing with this calendar.

Who cares about players health, about their rest? Who cares about fan´s' eyes, since we are forced to watch this pantomime volleyball, or not? Who cares that many matches are played in empty halls ? (Quantity clashes with quality.. ) The most important seems to be the business for some companies and for the management of FIVB, CEV, etc. This needs a complex solution.

This nonsense will backfire this year since the majority of europian teams will not send the best players to VNL. There are qualifications for the Olympic Games this year, with the nonsense rule as well (for example, Italy and Serbia are in the same group and only the 1st from the group goes to Olympic. So either Serbia or Italy won't go. But we will have some 3rd level team from Asia or Africa there). There is also Europian championship co-hosted between Belgium, France, Netherland and Slovenia (another stupid experiment) in September.
So VNL which has the sole purpose of making volleyball more popular will not have the best Europian players participating due to the crazy calendar. Therefore, people won't watch it because the biggest volleyball stars won't be there. Hopefully, CEV and FIVB will come to some senses and stop with those idiotics experiments

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
