Smarzek is listed as 191cm, but she looks at least 194-195cm when she is beside Kakolewska :what:

Poland is playing really well. The setter is using all options - quite unusual for them. Great serving and blocking. :super:

Voronkova is 190cm and from the looks of it Smarzek is a few inches taller than her so maybe you're right :win:

Yes but very small, Germany needs to win 3-2 and Turkey needs to get 0 points vs China as well. And Italy needs to win

It's too late now, we should have played better in the first weekend.. winning over Turkey and Poland back then would have the difference!

Early voting in my brain has Smarzek as VNL MVP even though Poland won't make the F6. Not just because of her numbers but because she said "Hi! We're Poland. We're here". Outstanding

Elena Pietrini is really new rising star in volleyball. Her stats when it comes to attack are already very good. You can't even compare Ebrar with her and they are the same age.

To bad that Italy will not play in Final6 because they have chance to win this not only to be their :whistle:

i did not watch DOM x JPN but it's not surprise that DOM has trouble with teams like JPN. they get very frustrated when they keep pounding the ball away and yet it keeps coming back. at the WCh 2014, when DOM finished in the final 6 (the highest result ever for them), they still lost to JPN 3-2 in the last match of pool play in the 2nd round. the result was meaningless because JPN was already eliminated and DOM already advanced to the finals, but i remember how sakoda keep flying from the backrow and pounding away, and DOM block and defense could never find her...

i think DOM really misses dela cruz, pri rivera and castillo, they really provided the glue that kept the team cohesive and together... certainly when they can't pass the ball, their whole system collapses.


De La Cruz and Castillo are certainly missed. Especially Castillo (where has she been playing?). But Rivera not all. Her prime has already passed long time ago. Have you watched her playing lately? She cannot even run for a ball. With all the due respect, she doesnt have the body of an high level athlete.

Those 3 players were in the last Grand Prix. Eventhough, DOM finished on the bottom :whistle:

I want to ask this again. Does anyone know? Do they have chartered flights with sleeping cabins?

When these 190 cm long women take a 20+ Hour flight from Omaha to Bangkok, or whatever, are they just flying Delta coach—with crying babies and what not?
