2012 Olympic Games

  • What about Kim Se-Young who played for many years as a starting six player? She was a tall MB (around 190cm). She didn't play both in Japan Qualificaion tournamnet and Grand Prix. :whistle:... Se-Young is rather made of wood but she isn't so bad to be out of the Games :lol:

    This year Korean roster changed a bit. I supposed that it was caused by change of coach, but I checked FIVB and coach reamins Hyung-Sil Kim so I don't know the reason

  • what do you think about Russia- Italy match? (Luba is back to the NT and that will make Russian players's self- confidence higher)


    IMO theres no chance for italy to beat russia especially in OG... OG has so different meanings for every team surely but for some teams it means much(like russia,brazil,usa) so i guess they cant beat russia and already if u think in generall italy is competiting with serbia,germany,turkey,poland to be 'second' after russia in europe! yep russia has taken some bad results last years but its still russia :thumbup:

    She has retired and now she is pregnant.
    Although she wasn't so nice in attacking, she was a nice blocker. :)

    are you sure? you know some predictions of yours didnt come true at wgp (like China -Thailand etc.) :thumbsup:
    if i were you i woudnt speak so certainly.

  • I love Russia and some Russian players, Goncharova, Sokolova, Yulia Morozova.... but I think Russia is praised too much. They were a great force yes, they are still a great team yes, there are some great athletes again yes, but there is nothing in the last 5-4 years that shows that they are a great team (except gold medal at the WCH).. I think that they are overrated.. I know many like that, and please don't insult me for thinking like this.. it's just my opinion..

    lol yep my predictions didnt come true but the wgp was really different if u compare it with the others :D but i guess we'll see completly different china in OG and actually i dont talk certainly i usually try to use 'probably,might....' in my sentences look at them more carefully :thumbsup: and if we r talking about predictions which didnt come true here yours :thumbsup:
    BRA 3-1 CUB 29-Jun

    I will not insult u, but your argument is almost useless IMO since they have won the most important tournament last 4 years and dont care so much about the rest. They have also pretty much the same team as in WCH 2010. Russia have not won a ECH for over 10 yrs. and not even participated in World Cup since 2003, and didnt even played in WGP 2008,2010 or 2012. They are not like USA where all players seems to get along with each other. Russia is a team that needs a big goal to get motivated to play effective together with good cooperation, we have seen this the last ten years so its no rocket science.


  • i had admitted that my predictions sucked. You also have to be more carefull of what is going on,even you need a glass to see that :P
    btw,you said" italy has no chance to beat Russia..." does it point out a probabability or certanity?...decide it first... :wavy:

    Anton , you and Russi are lucky, Luba is back, we'll see how motivated she will be at oG. :whistle::P

    Well, if they play only in important tournaments why did they lost the European QT? Those teams were much stronger than the ones in OQT... However I think Russian team is not that good, but we'll see
