Olympic Games - Brazil 2016 (qualification process)

  • they registered her so probably yes, in the USA we have many OPs so it could be harder to get a spot there, but I don't think she'll be on that tournament ;) Ferrer has great season and Ocasio is such experienced player, but I see that she can be also OH ;)

  • Does anyone know if Turkey will send their NT when they play in the World Grand Prix when the leg is played in California CA in June 2016?


    Maxwell, the answer is yes, they will send their national team. But I think the question that you are really asking is "Is it Turkey's First Team?"


    The FIVB has each of the countries name a roster of players. We only know maybe the week before who is going to travel/play.


    It is annoying, but it allows coaches to try new players. With Turkey not being in the Olympics this year, I would think that they would send their first team.

  • Italian final Roster:


    S: Ofelia Malinov e Alessia Orro;
    Opp: Nadia Centoni e Serena Ortolani;
    MB: Cristina Chirichella, Anna Danesi e Martina Guiggi;
    OH: Antonella Del Core, Paola Egonu, Alessia Gennari, Francesca Piccinini e Miriam Sylla;
    L: Monica De Gennaro e Immacolata Sirressi.

    OMG, Diouf out!? Is there a more reliable attacker in the team other than her?


    Well, there is only two tough teams for ITA and they only have to get top three.

    I think Top-4 is adequate.


    Eight Teams Arrive In Japan, But Only Four Can Go To Rio


    All eight women’s volleyball teams are now in Japan, and the scene is set for seven days of intense competition with half of the teams destined to book a place at this year’s Rio Olympics.

    Diouf is such clumsy and slow player, she's only tall :!: good that she's out :D I prefer Ortolani much more :wavy:

  • Diouf is such clumsy and slow player, she's only tall :!: good that she's out :D I prefer Ortolani much more :wavy:


    I am not that surprised she is out. I mean she was terrible in Modena, and I mean terrible.. and wasn't so good in the NT before that. Why would she be in the roster when they have Contoni who did a good job in Turkey, and Ortolani who looks like found her shape

  • to sum up rosters for starting tomorrow OQT in Japan: we know Italy (above), Japan (final roster in NT thread), Netherlands (final roster in NT thread), Korea (final roster in NT thread), Dominican Republic (final roster in NT thread as well ^^ )

  • They chose 15 players before OQT, these 13 players mentioned by me and 2 more:
    S: Mojica, Valentijn
    OP: Ocasio, Ferrer, Prieto-Cerame
    OH: Cruz, Enright, Rosa, Santana
    MB: Morales, Oquendo, Reyes, DIaz
    L: Seilhamer, Venegas


    Puerto Rico is a host, so probably only 1 player will be out, not 3, it can be OP - probably Prieto-Cerame :wavy:

  • Ye, he is one sided. He is so obvious on siding with Italy. Well my team just won and the have a good mix of veterans and young players

  • i think the commentator was the same guy from many years ago who keep mispronouncing/misreading players' names. Remember "Sonsemir" (Sonsirma) :lol:

  • Italy finally survived of korea thanks to Sylla and Egonu.


    They're supposed to win in 3 sets but thanks to Centoni,very bad in crucial time.i don't know she come to court for what reason.


    in 4th sets, bonitta realized centoni could not in, so he moves Egonu as OPP sub Ortolani, who is in high level but long-time-no-in-NT so she is not stable.


    If he did not want Diouf back, so ortolani and egonu should go to Rio. Centoni should stay home watching TV.
