The Russian Women’s Volleyball Championship runners-up Lokomotiv Kaliningrad region parted ways with three players.


Lokomotiv, who won a silver medal in the Russian Championship last season, which was the club’s debut season in the top-flight, said goodbye to the three players involved in this success.

The opposite hitter Elena Litovchenko and outside hitters Valeriya Safonova and Yuliya Kutyukova (the only starter of Lokomotiv last season out of those three players) will have to find themselves a new team for the 2019/20 season.

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... :-(
