    My feeling is that Ze wants the best to play in the OQ, and since he's leaving, he is not worrying about whether they'll be available for 2021-2024 cycle.

    unfortunately i have the same feeling with yours, well, i hope Ze shall take things rational enough to assess the 30+ players whether physically fit.

    Pool C (Louisanna, USA)


    Argentina 14 Roster

    Setter: Garliano, Mayer

    Oposite: Fresco

    Outside Hitter: Nizeditch, Acosta, Rodrigues, Fortuna, Piccolo, Blaich

    Middle Blocker: Lazcano, Herreta, M.Tosi

    Libero, Rizzo, Gonzalez


    Kazahstan 13 Roster

    Setter: Akilova, Bakuldina

    Opposite: Karapetan

    Outside Hitter: Anarkulova, Tatko, Rostovschkova, Sitkaznova, Syroeshkina

    Middle Blocker: Shashakova, Kostiva, Anikonova

    Libero: Fendrikova, Rylova

    2 liberos will be the safest duo if Russia takes 14 players.

    5 outside hitters seem rebundant, so either yurinskaia or kotikova could be cut.

    I guess that most likely Diao Lin-Yu and Zeng Chun-lei will be cut from the current 16 player list in Beilun TC. Both Liu Xiao-tong and Liu Yan-han will be selected, and Zhang Chang-ning will play in OPP along with Gong Xiang-yu. 4 OH, 4 MB, 2 OPP, 2 S, and 2 L.


    The Chinese final 14-roster will be announced in the last moment.

    hah...more or less.

    hosts are always taking actions the last, as brazil, poland, russia does the same.

    well....US and Italy are both quicker this time.

    I dont know if you are a Portuguese-language speaker but she did not deny playing at the qualifying. She actually confirmed that she will play and that she is a 100% ready.

    thank you for correct me. :drink:

    i can only recognise some similar latin spellings to English when i read. but i did translate them by google if i would like to understand intensively.

    personally, i do not think she is 100% ready because i read from the article that she was out of pace with macris' quick balls, not in the best shape after her absence of court for so long.

    her last game was in January! she is out of shape, badly... she took some photos to advertise the new jerseys recently and boy, oh boy :sos:

    Tandara completely denied her participation of pre-qualication tournament because of lacking pace with Macris' quick ball. she needs more time to fully recover and get back her good shape gradually.

    The technical team will try to put her in court for Sudamerican Championship and World Cup, together with Sheilla and Fabiana. so the fight between the two opposites will continue again.

    i guess the officially annouced roster only include 5 players nowadays

    Setter: Macris, Roberta

    Opposite: Tandara

    Libero: Leia, Suelen


    i believe the other 9 players will not be wider than VNL rosters.

    CBV reported BRA team arrived in Uberlandia today.

    But i noticed Natalia, who was announced not playing, was in the airport, together with macris.

    who else arrived ? Sidney

    Zeng and Diao will be cut for 90% sure. because Zeng's injury is getting heavier these days, for a veteran, it is hard. the injury could be the only resistance for her to overcome and go farther to Tokyo.


    Through an interview, Zeng appreciated all her experience and luck to be with NT till now. She is never feeling regretful at anybody or anything, and she is still positive in her attitution to train with her teammates no matter what will happen to her in the future. She will count the days and prepare her best for any result.


    Personally speaking, her experience shown in WGCC 2017, Wch in 2018 and VNL 2019 is definately treasured and is inspiring the youngsters.

    i think there is another thread taling about the same topic with mine, so any BBS administrator could be very kind to combine the both together?


    BTW, does anybody know why DR is not participating the Pan Games in Peru this year?

    Ze Roberto is preparing for the annually most important tournament -----WOQT for Tokyo;

    It is reported that Fabiana, Sheilla and Suelen are all reserved for this tournament, who will trained together with the VNL players;

    Besides, definately a B team will attend Pan Games, so i guess it would be a kind mixed combination of “partial A team not in WOQT + Underaged + Universiade”
