Ovchinnikov may have Russia's best players at his disposal but if they are like this, it may just as well be a repeat of 2008 beijing tragedy. I hope they could rise above the situation. Really sad to hear about this :(

I dont want to say too much, and this is no official news, but I heard that the mood in the Russian NT isnt good right now, and Makhno wanted to go from there. She was very angry and also deleted her account at Facebook yesterday.
:rolll:

So maybe She was Vaio. First deleted profile here then Facebook.

The 4th set score 31-29 for Turkey ! The total score 4-0 for Turkey.. It was nice to win with 2nd team.. :drink: Can't wait to 2nd May :super:

what is the Dutch rosters?


classic starting 6. I was not able to watch to extra set, I do not know what is happened there, probably in the extra set the both teams played with 2nd team.

:white: That's hard...I wonder what's behind all that, it can't be just the Moscow vs Kazan rivalry. Maybe the team could use a coach like Karpol who isn't afraid of throwing players out when they harm the team even if they perform well.


Yeah, maybe, but if u choose that system, and for ex. Goncha and Gamova is in a fight, it will not be Gamova that leaves. Because of Gamovas huge popularity, its to say "Hey, I want to get kicked out tomorrow", so its a problem that Gamova feels she can do whatever she wants. Only a extremly successfull coach like Karpol or coach that have been a starplayer before, have the authority to do that kind of stuff. Ovechnikov have been widely critisied in media for that he have to less authority and that players like Gamova and Sokolova maybe will not respect him.
I totally agree.

I really hope this is not true. Maybe Makhno was just sad because she will not be part of the top 12 or maybe because she has an injury, as written in sb-volley. ru site.

I agree, that is sad to hear...I thought that as they were top professional player all this could be avoided! this could influence a lot their performance, for sure!

Who knows, perhaps Russia can still rise above the occasion. Maybe they can channel all the negative energy in the right direction, I wouldn't be surprised if that happened.
Yugoslavian team that won gold in Sydney was the same, with half of the players not talking to each other at all.

I hope so too but it will be hard. Maybe one reason is that for example Sokolova and Gamova just think "I want to win Olympic gold medal" but they forget that the whole team is necessary for that. The quality of Russia's players is definitely good enough to win Ankara tournament but motivation is important too...
