VOLLEYBALL GLOBE - 2011
On the eve of the upcoming London Olympic Games 2012, Volleyball.it, the Italian volleyball portal, proposes the Volleyball Globe on the net. It is a volleyball prize yearly awarded to players who stood out more in the last calendar year, playing in a club of any national championship in the world, and with their national team.
The prize will be awarded to the best male player and the best female player in the world, and there will be partial awards for each male and female role (setter, opposite, spiker, middle blocker and libero).
The vote will take place in two phases.
The first will consist of a popular vote of the international Volleyball.it readers through polls published in a dedicated section of the website, with male and female players divided by role; later on, a subsequent vote of an enlarged jury, made by more than 100 volleyball journalists gathered worldwide, will have the leading value to the award of two absolute prizes.
The jury of journalists will be given a list of all male and female players included in the survey previously mentioned, asking them to indicate five absolute names in a ranking from 1st to 5th place, both for men and women.
Journalists will also have the possibility of proposing two male or female players not mentioned in the lists.
Next to the Volleyball Globe reserved to male and female players, fans and journalists will also have the possibility of voting the coach of the year, the one leading a men's volleyball team and the one leading a women's volleyball team. The criteria awarding players and coaches will consider results achieved with the national team and during the last season in the club.
My votes are goes to Naz Aydemir, Logan Tom, Margareta Kozuch, Stefana Veljkovic, Gizem Guresen and Ze Roberto..
