That rule is so ridiculous and it only made sense before the libero was introduced in 2000
IOC is also considering the accommodation capacity of each host city, so there comes out with the limitation of the composition of each national representatives.
continued with the my upper post, Brazil U20 includes 11 playsers, Mayara Barcelos is the 3rd outside hitter to the roster.
honestly, both Ebrar and Drews deserve to be best OPP IMO. Even if they lost the match against China, she got 31pts today.
as an exellent opposite, Karakurt still has to improved a lot because her attacks' efficiency is heavily affected by the errors that are completely out of her control at some time
Players of Brazil U20 to participate the friendlies against Argentina, China, Turkey in MG are:
Setters: Kenya, Rose
Opposites: Kisy, Jheovana
Middle Blockers: Laura Kudies, Daniella Seibt, Julia Kudies
Outside Hitters: Julia Bergmann, Ana Cristina
Libero: Letícia Moura
apparently it is not a full roster, does anybody have more information about it?
Lin Li is not in her best shape still but now she is much better than what she performed last year.
Ni Feifan makes me feel refreshing again after Wang Mengjie.
Wang Yuanyuan and Zheng Yixin are just unbalanced players that cannot be dominant in both attachking and blocking, on the contrary, Yang Hanyu is more potential to improve.
Liu Xiaotong and Liu Yanhan shall be stay in the main roster as the backup of Zhu Ting and Li Yingying, Zhang Changning.
I agree with saishuu. I also think we'll see Tainara, and one of Paula/Lorenne there. Maybe Sheilla will join too.
OHs: Lana, Maíra, Tainara (?), ?
Opps: Sheilla (?), Lorenne (?)
MBs: Lara, Milka, Fabiana
We would still need one setter and one OH.
roberta and amanda should go, to get more practices
Gold Medal match: BRA x USA 1-3
Bronze Medal match: CHN x TUR 3-1
I will accept these predictions as nobody knew China’s roster before. I fully understand you and I think that everyone should post prediction as late as possible to be confirmed of all things around (like rosters) but I understand also that somebody may be afraid to forget to predict and want to post results earlier. I want to have kind a human approach and just have fun.
I can lead future predictions as well and we can always discuss more strict rules if you would like to
yes, agree with your comments. there used to be a kinda clear front rules annouced when every prediction game starts. for example, i would not post any results that i had already missed, i see many other friends doing so here too.
but for sure i am not taking it too serious which is only for fun.
however, i noticed China combination of A2+B1 also mixed up a great many predictions although many knew the roster. so this is unexpectation of games, and predication isn't easy. but i like it.
Brasil will send B team to Panamerican Cup, so i read from a local media. however, Julia Bergman will not play either.
the edited or additional posts shall not be counted, guys.
i am serious, Hilma was super great, if ze likes, i hope she could be invited too along with Fernanda Venturini and Marcia Fu Cunha. lol
any body knows how is Jenina Conceicao nowadays ? Fabiana flopped a lot since two seasons ago, i do not think her back is a wise decision but she can share more experience to the youngsters indeed.
the successors Lima and Arlene were both much better than Suelen, orz, the latter should be forgotten for ever.
i totally doubt sheilla and tandara's shape recently, who were absent from court for so long time or after a long break due to injury. the both passed their golden ages so can they dare to shine their best performances in the next tournaments?
Canada 3-0 over Croatia by 25-18, 25-20, 26-24 to get to the challenger final.
Czech Republic will fight for the only vacancy against Canada in order to promote to 2020 VNL.
if Korea quits, i hope Canada could join the next edition, other than Bulgaria.
i hope the bottom 2 teams in VNL preliminary round will be cut off.
Korea and Bulgaria are apparently both missed out from the schedule.
then i guess the big chance is the finalists from challenger cup will be filled out.
