    5. Godina

    Just wondering, how old is Kirilova, the former setter of the Russian team and wife of Caprara? I heard she is one of the greatest setters of Russia. Is it possible for her play again for the team just for this coming Beijing Olympics?


  • I agree with you.

  • Kirillova is 42 or 43 years old. Some time ago there were rumours that she wanted to play in Beijing but it is not possible because in the 90s she changed nationality from Russian to Croatian and FIVB rules do not allow to play for the old national team again.

  • My Brazil's team would be:


    outside hitters: Paula Pequeno, Jaqueline Carvalho, Natália Pereira and Marianne Steinbrecher
    middle-blockers: Walewska, Fabiana and Adenízia
    opposites: Sheilla and Joycinha
    setters: Fofão and Carol Albuquerque
    libero: Fabi
