“Without Russia, this is not the quality, all the athletes of the world understand this” – Shipulin about the World Volleyball Championship

Vice-President of the All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VVF) Gennady Shipulin believes that the World Championship is not a full-fledged tournament without the participation of the Russian team in it.

– Strong teams of France, Serbia flew out. Even Ukraine, which played well, was also eliminated. Championship is good. Yesterday I watched the match Slovenia – Ukraine. A full hall, a wonderful atmosphere, Ukraine played well. They almost didn’t have enough. The strongest teams remained.

Who will be the champion? I don’t know, but I like Italians. Unfortunately, with tears in my eyes I tell you that the World Cup was not held in Russia. Such colossal preparation, we have such palaces. The country was waiting like the main holiday. Without Russia, this is not the same tournament. God grant that Russia returns to the sports arenas of the world in all sports. I believe it will happen. Without Russia, this is not the same quality, and all athletes in the world understand this. And the grandfathers who rule Europe do not understand this and will not understand, – quotes the words of Shipulin “Championship”.

The volleyball world championship takes place in Poland and Slovenia from August 26 to September 11.

Volleyball player Tetyukhin told why he is not thinking about changing sports citizenship

The player of Belogorye and the Russian national volleyball team Pavel Tetyukhin spoke about the possibility of changing sports citizenship.

– This exit is more suitable for individual athletes, for whom everything is at stake. We are a team sport. And if you globally change sports citizenship, then this is a change in everything: the style of living, life, playing. There will be no turning back. The same tennis players no longer live in Russia: Medvedev lives in France, it gives a little on the international arena, they play Grand Slams. It’s probably more about them.

Of course, I will not judge, but in general I do not know a single player from the Russian national teams, clubs who are ready to go right now to change their citizenship. We have a good league in this regard. It seems to me that for some time the level will definitely remain high, – Tetyukhin is quoted as saying by “Championship”.

On March 1, the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) suspended all Russian teams and clubs from participating in international competitions due to the situation in Ukraine.

Belogorye and the Russian national team player Pavel Tetyukhin called Zenit-Kazan and Dynamo from Moscow the favorites of the new season of the national volleyball championship.

– I consider Zenit-Kazan and Dynamo to be the favorites in the new season. The rest of the teams have a slightly smaller chance, even the St. Petersburg “Zenith” and “Lokomotiv”.

The playoffs will be more interesting for me personally than the Final Six. I’m glad he’s back. Playing the playoffs at home is a very different experience than playing the Final Six on neutral ground. In the playoffs, it will be important to mentally withstand the opponent on the court, playing in full stands. This, of course, will be more fun and interesting, ”Tetyukhin said to the Championship.

Last season, Dynamo from the capital became the champion of the country, defeating Lokomotiv Novosibirsk in the final.

The new season started on September 30th.
