Left-handed middle blockers

  • Is No.3 of Kenya women's NT a left-handed MB in World Cup 2019?

    I only know three left-handed MBs and two men of them are also OPs.

    They are Qin Song (Sichuan men's VC), Renan Buiatti (Brazil men's NT) and Ha Joon-Eem (former South Korea women's NT and parcitipate in 2012 OG).

    Add the lineup of 6 left-handed men: Zhan Guo-jun (S), Wang Jing-yi (OP), Julian Lyneel (OH1), Thibaut Rossard (OH2), Qin Song (MB1), Renan Buiatti (MB2) ...


    My favourite roster of Chinese
    male NT:
    S - Li Run-ming, Zhan Guo-jun
    OP - Dai Qing-yao, Jiang Chuan
    OH - Ji Dao-shuai, Xia Run-tao, Liu Li-bin, Zhang Chen
    MB - Zhang Zhe-jia, Chen Long-hai, Geng Xin
    L - Ren Qi

    female NT:
    S - Ding Xia, Yao Di
    OP - Gong Xiang-yu, Zhang Chang-ning
    OH - Hui Ruo-qi, Zhu Ting, Liu Xiao-tong, Li Jing
    MB - Yuan Xin-yue, Yan Ni, Xu Yun-li
    L - Lin Li

    My avatar is Jiang Chuan. I hope more persons love him.

    Changed the title of the thread from “How many left-handed middle blockers do you know?” to “Left-handed middle blockers”.
  • i always had the impression that lefties are often OPP... i mean, they can be setters and liberos too, but not as often OH or MB. i think setting to a lefty MB is more difficult, because it requires a lot of precision, whereas setting high balls to OPP does not require as much, so lefties tend to be pushed to be OPP. at least that's my theory...
