In the final of the World Championship 1990 in Brazil, Italy defeated Cuba 3-1 (12-15, 15-11, 15-6, 16-4) to write the new golden page of the Italian volleyball.

It was an amazing game against the Cubans, that were physically superior compared to the other teams at the tournament. However, the Italian player knew how to defeat the Cubans.

The last point of the game was created by Lorenzo Bernardi and we saw a huge celebration of the Italian boys. Some of them were celebrating in referee’s chair…

These are the players that managed to win the gold medal at the World Championship 1990:

Andrea Anastasi, Lorenzo Bernardi, Marco Bracci, Luca Cantagalli, Ferdinando De Giorgi, Andrea Gardini, Andrea Giani, Andrea Lucchetta, Marco Martinelli, Roberto Masciarelli, Paolo Tofoli, and Andrea Zorzi. Head Coach: Julio Velasco.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
