FVU President Melnik: Our men’s team is at the top level. We hope to get to the Olympics

The women’s team has little chance of going to the 2024 Games

President of the Volleyball Federation of Ukraine (VVU) Mikhail Melnik called the goals of Ukraine in qualifying olympic tournaments.

“Our men’s team is at the top world level. Therefore, of course, we are counting on the first Olympics in our history.”

“Of course, we will fight for access to the Games among women as well. But you need to be realistic. So far, we are considering two options with participation in the Olympic qualification.”

“The first is to collect all the best legionnaires and show your maximum. There is no guarantee that with this maximum we will make it to the 2024 Olympics. The second option is to form a team of promising young volleyball players, to give them the opportunity to gain experience in the Olympic qualification with an eye to the next Olympic cycle, in order to fight for getting into the 2028 Games with real chances of success.”

Recall that the Ukrainian women’s volleyball team has qualified for the qualification tournament for the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

Earlier it was reported that the men’s team of Ukraine will take part in the qualification for the Olympics in Paris for the first time. Qualifying tournaments will be held in September and October 2023.
