  • German final roster:


    S: Denise Hanke, Irina Kemmsies
    OPP: Louisa Lippmann, Lena Stigrot (also OH)
    OH: Maren Fromm, Jennifer Geerties, Jana Franziska Poll, Tanja Großer
    MB: Marie Schölzel, Leonie Schwertmann, Jennifer Pettke, Lisa Gründing
    L: Lenka Dürr, Anna Pogany

  • I guess this German NT can be 5th to 8th place in the competition, any one better or even a medal would surprise me. Despite a lot of injury issues of Serbian team, they are considered as one of the favorites together with Russia, Italy, Netherlands and Turkey.

  • Turkey final roster:


    S: Naz Aydemir Akyol, Gamze Alikaya
    OPP: Meryem Boz, Polen Uslupehlivan
    OH: Gözde Kırdar Bracceschi, Neriman Özsoy Gençyürek, Güldeniz Önal, Hande Baladın (also OPP)
    MB: Eda Erdem Dündar (Captain), Bahar Toksoy Guidetti, Kübra Çalışkan
    L: Gizem Örge Güner, Simge Şebnem Aköz, Merve Dalbeler

  • Yea I would have taken another MB since Bahar Toksoy/Guidetti is not in fom and not good enough at the moment and Kübra is not always reliable either. Should have taken best MB of the U23 Beyza. She is maybe not the best in attack but super strong in block and her serve can cause a lot of pressure on a lot of teams. She hit like 8 aces one set v DOM and even in the Turkish league vs VakifBank I remember she turned around a set aftr 24-21 down. All in all she surely better then Bahar and can even replace Kübra at times. I'm happy Hande is in the final roster though.


    Simge seems useless to me especially since Güldeniz is already here like Umu11 mentioned.
