In the International League, Polish volleyball players will play 15 or 17 games in a month (if promoted to the semi-finals). All this happened in the anti-bubble in Rimini, Italy. The strange rules and uncomfortable conditions of the participants caused a huge controversy.
But Polish women do not complain. For them, the 2021 League of Nations is a good opportunity to enter this season. The best national team in the world is preparing for the Tokyo Olympics. After the European Championships in August and September, our team will become the strongest team after the Olympics. Will Jacek Nawrocki, who has been the coach of the national team since 2015, lead the team to win the championship in Rimini first and then win the European championship medal?
Małgorzata Glinka-Mogentale: This is the year of the Olympics, and all major teams are preparing for the Olympics. We will play with them very well.
-Well, the situation in the League of Nations is strange this year. However, the situation of the Polish women’s volleyball team made us unable to be critical and said that we would not be excited about this kind of thing. What must we take. We must fight for ranking and victory. For us, it doesn’t matter whether the Italian or the Serbian are in Rimini in the second or first team. We are finally going to play something.
– of course. The best team in Europe will be based in Tokyo. For them, the European Championship will not be a key event, but for us, it will be a key event. This must be our opportunity. Then we must fight. We have been waiting for a long time for the staff to succeed.
– Yes of course. You must take advantage of this situation. Finally, build a stable, high-quality team. I don’t know if any coach has the same opportunity to build a team like Nawrocki. Six years of work?I don’t remember anything
-His tenure was a very successful period. We won two gold medals in the European Championship. There is no comparison.
-There is Magda Stysiak in the Italian league. She shows that she is playing at the world level. There is also Malwina Smarzek and Asian Wołosz will also come. But so far, we have strong personal connections, and we don’t have a strong team. Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think the team has achieved any success yet. So far, the fact that someone has performed well in the club and achieved certain achievements has not translated into the national team. Personal success is of course important. I am happy for them and blame the girls, but now this team is playing and if they achieve success together, it would be great. Girls have great ambitions. I know. I believe they will show their best.
-Rimini is a famous tourist destination, so the League of Nations looks like a Masovian champion, which is strange. Worst of all, people have to stay there for a month, because this is what the anti-vid bubble requires. I feel sorry for them. Of course, the conditions provided by the organizers are trivial. Even at the Beijing Olympics, you feel like you are living in a cardboard house, and your commuting time is so organized that you sit on the bus all day. But now, organizers should pay special attention to these issues.
