In the final of the Women's World Championship 1994 in Brazil, Cuba defeated Brazil 3-0 (15-2, 15-10, 15-5) and won the second gold for their country in this competition.

Brazil played the World Championship on the home soil with the desire to win the gold. But, mighty Cuba didn't allow that. They dominated during the whole match and when the Cuban team put the block for the last point in the match, the celebration started. 

Regla Radameris Torres  was the leader of the Cuban team and she was named for the MVP.

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”

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
