Sheilla's take on Tiffany's case may be the most sensible, unbiased and appropriate response.(just look for her instagram post for more details)
I think quota is definitely needed. If we cannot prevent players like Tiffany to dominate a league. I guess just make a quota to keep the balance of the leagues and the international tournaments. We cannot shut them down so we have to keep the field an equal ground for everybody.
The case of Tiffany is very interesting and beautiful at the same time but may present some ugly truths about the hormone theraphy. It is a fight for freedom from judgmental people but it is also a battle of justice in the spirit of competition.
Did you listen Sheilla interview? She knows nothing about what she is talking about. She clearly doesn't know the difference between transsexual and gay, people, she said a lot of ignorant/disrespectful things like now all gays and queers (she used a offensive term in Portuguese "viados") will start treatment to play in women volleyball and used the male pronoun when talking about Tifanny
ZRG called 6 players whose clubs' seasons are already over to NT training:

OH's Edinara, Fernanda Tomé and Amanda were invited too, but seems they will only help the team.
News about Molly Kreklow: http://www.mutigers.com/news/2…teer-assistant-coach.aspx
She has been named volunteer assistant coach for University of Missouri Volleyball.
wow, good luck for her, everything happened so fast in her career.
Rosamaria playing very well as OH
Camponesa/Minas (BRA) for Camponesa (milk brand).
I think both MB's (Carla #1 and Flavia #8 ) have the same height.

I watched the last South American U-18 and seems CBV finally is trying to develop tall players instead of insists in the short ones who are already more skilled.
Curious note about Julia Bergman, she is German and came very young to Brazil. His father is German and his mother is Brazilian.
Disappointed but not surprised
Cameroon worked really hard to get ready for the OG, they are in Brazil since May training with some Brazilian coaches and playing friendlies.
