2020 Olympic Games - Tokyo (Female)

  • Sorry. I misread you. :aww: But do you have any ideas why Turkey's lineup is still 14 players?

    Volleyball.it says that Turkish Federation told FIBV the 12 athletes who will actually play but decided not to make it public. They also guess Ayca and Asli will be the alternates (I also think they are not in the 12)

  • China announced their roster as well.

    Only Serbia and Dominican Republic left

    I think they did it before many countries.


    S: Marte, Dominguez

    Opp: B. Martinez, Gonzalez

    OH: De La Cruz, Rivera, Peña

    MB: Eve, Valdez, J. Martinez, Arias

    L: Castillo

  • do you have a link to that?

    Not official, I read that on Twitter :whistle:


    I'm pretty sure it's official. DR doesn't have active social media.

  • italy put sorokaite

    I never see her games in japan,she played as opp or oh,if she was receiving maybr it could explain their poor performance there

    she was the offense focus for Toyota last year as the opposite. Almost too dependent on her.

  • Is Valdez oldest volleyball Olympian?

  • Is Valdez oldest volleyball Olympian?

    She's among them. Valdez is gonna be 40 by August 7th and Tokyo ends on August 8th. Gattaz will be 40 (July 27th) once Tokyo starts. Serginho and Tetyukhin were also 40 in 2016. There's probably been other cases too.

    Gold - European Championship 2013 (M) Prediction Game
    Bronze - World Championship 2014 (W) Prediction Game

    Bronze - Volleyball Nations League 2019 (W) Prediction Game

    It is interesting that 2 oldest volleyball players are indeed MB which is supposed to be the most physically demanding position. I remember Daniele Scott Arruda, who was an MB as well, played in OG while she was 39 or 40

  • Gennari is playing for what reason?
