Jana Kulan sets all-time record scoring 60 points in V.League Final
Miscellaneous

Tokyo, Japan, April 14, 2019. Azerbaijan’s Jana Kulan set a world record for the most points scored in one single match on Saturday – and yet she could not help Toray Arrows claim the Japanese V.League crown as they lost at the Golden Set to titleholders Hisamitsu Springs. Kulan scored an amazing 60 points in the match to improve on the previous record set by another Azerbaijani player, Polina Rahimova, with 58.

Actually, the formula of the V.League is somehow special. There are home and away matches played to determine the eventual winners – and if the double fixture ends with one victory apiece, the two teams have to play a Golden Set – however up to 25 points!

Toray Arrows registered a 3-2 victory over Hisamitsu Springs KOBE (29-31, 25-19, 25-23, 23-25, 15-13), with Kulan scoring 50 points alone. A Golden Set followed, with Kulan adding another 10 points to her name – but it was all in vain since Hisamitsu Springs emerged victorious 25-18 to secure the national league top honours. The team from Kobe retained the title won last year – to account for the seventh V.League triumph in their history.

With 60 points, Kulan, born in Slovakia and previously known as Jana Matiasovska-Aghayeva, set an all-time record since the introduction of the rally point system some two decades ago. After leaving Slovakia for Azerbaijan, she helped her ‘adopted’ team claim the 2016 European League title and finish fourth at the last EuroVolley Women held in Baku in 2017.
