Happy Birthday KAZAN and junior beach volleyball in this week on social

Luxembourg, May 16, 2020.  When faced with corona some of the things we had grown accustomed to aren’t as normal as we would like. A simple thing as getting a haircut can become a daunting task. Fortunately, there are players who can help you. We have proven to be flexible, new situations call for new solutions. And new initiatives, as we have seen online this week. And next to those solutions we celebrate the 20th Birthday of Zenit KAZAN and we also see the new generation of Latvian beach volleyball players stepping up.

Let’s start with wishing the record 6-time Champions League winners Zenit KAZAN a Happy Birthday! On Wednesday, the club from the Russian republic of Tatarstan celebrated that wonderful anniversary by taking a trip down memory lane. Starting from the establishment of the club as a team for the Kazan police department, to all of the crowns in the CEV Champions League. We salute Zenit KAZAN and wish them many happy returns!

Some players have found that time without Volleyball has given them insight into what they would like to do when their careers are over. For Meryem Boz a career as a hairstylist might just be the direction she’s headed. In this video you can see that the MVP of the 2020 CEV Tokyo European Qualification has more cards up her sleeve when it comes to finding a way to cut it.

For the installation of the new generation of Beach Volleyballers, we move to Latvia. Because we saw that for Edgars Tocs and his son Emils the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Just four years old, but you can see that the technique is already present in tomorrow’s Beach Volleyball stars! Check out the video that the Beach Volleyball account from the FIVB shared.

And one of the things that caused a ripples in the pond was the announcement by CEV of the Team of the Decade. Poland’s head coach Vital Heynen, European Coaches Commision President Philippe Blain and two-time World Champion Andrea Zorzi chose the Dream Team for the period between 2010 and 2019. Wilfredo Leon was chosen as one of the outside hitters, he went on Instagram to express his gratitude. His Polish countryman Piotr Nowakowski mentioned how nice it is to be part of such a group of players.

So, that’s it for this week. Now when we’re all looking on how to restart Volleyball in the way that we would like, it’s still very important to maintain the measures to keep corona at bay. The video beneath shows a way of playing Volleyball which is corona proof that's just a little extreme.

#StayHome, #StaySafe and don’t forget to let us know how you #PasstheTime!
