    I am sorry, I don't really follow Lang Ping outside of her professional career. Can you explain to us what has she done that make you despise her so much?

    I really don't get your hatred towards her.

    If you are talking about her commercial endorsement deals, the quality of the products have nothing to do with her, do they?

    If anything, she's a victim as well.

  • It is all FIVB fault. Why not use VNL as Olympic qualification? It's the same formula as WC basically. Or play WC insted of VNL year before Olympics. With 6 teams advancing plus Japan plus 5 continental champions (or next teams) to advance. You get rid of qualification tournament with drawing of lots which is unfair anyway and WC which doesn't make sense to play...


    And VNL plus continental championship become real tournaments not friendly games..

  • It is all FIVB fault. Why not use VNL as Olympic qualification?

    I thought the same.

    But I guess more tournaments, more money from everywhere. Just imagine that for organization of OQT each federation had to pay 500.000$. So it is not only about sport but about business.

    :wall:Where did you get this information?


    If this is true, Polish federation paid 500K $ for organizing of tournament with no chance to beat Serbia yet they rejected Guidetti to be NT coach few years ago because of money :white:

    I think that it was reported in all Polish newspapers. Here I found one:

    But as far as I know women's tournament was cheaper as nobody was really interested.


    Guidetti was not hired because of artificial corruption scandal in Polish Federation and then federation management didn't make it to sign the contract.

    :down:

    It was also reported in Brazilian media. I think that's why Brazil is not hosting the male tournament, only the female one.

  • Interview with Lang Ping

    You've been out of the field for many years and you are leading a "volleyball war" with Zoran Terzic. What do you think of him?


    We've been known for many years and I think he's a great trainer. He has built this program on which all the successes of the women's national team of Serbia are based and has been perfecting for many years. I think that his work speaks of the best medals won over a decade ago. He has a special, specific personality. I respect him very much. I know that the job of a trainer is not easy and that it brings many difficulties in situations when a male person is training a women's team. This is the case with many more choices. All coaches are great people, I look at colleagues as if we are one big volleyball family, as we are, but also friends who are on different sides only on the field.


    Is the victory in the finals of the Olympic Games in Rio the greatest success in a career?


    - It was the third in the history of Chinese women's volleyball. These gold medals made me very happy and proud, but first of all because of the girls who worked extremely hard. Some of them have overcome great problems with injuries, recovering and achieving their dreams. For this reason I was happier because of the girls than for myself


    You were a great player, one of the best in women's volleyball history, today you are no less successful as a coach. Where are you better?

    It's hard to compare these two things because they are different categories. It is the duty of the player to do his job, the one the coach entrusts to him. On the other hand, a coaching job requires looking at a much wider picture. I think the world of athletes and trainers is completely different, that these two sides are incomparable. I am glad because I am a volleyball player, and now I am successful as a coach.


    Have you ever, since many years ago, been in Serbia?


    - Unfortunately, only then. It was a tournament, and in these situations, there is not much free time for people to look. I've heard about your country much better and I really hope that in the future I will have more opportunities to visit Serbia and see for myself, as well as to see where such good players are.

    You will be quite sure, very dear guest.


  • I have the feeling that Poland will surprise everyone and will make to the semifinals, mark my words ;)

    I'm very curious about this final 6, I would like to see good games :win:

  • LOL so according to chinese sources the coach said that the starting players were injured, and apparently kiraly asked "is jenny injured too?"


    :roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::roll:

    I thought it’s an open secret that Lang Ping has extensive health issues that is why her continuing as a head coach has always been a question mark. If Kiraly did say that, that jab ain’t cute.

    The thing is, who doesn't have a minor injury at this level of volleyball? the players just overcome it if the tournament is important enough. That is why this reason for not having the A-team is very funny to me.


    Also if this was the WCh or OG, Jenny's health issues would not stop her.
