Russian news outlet Tass.com has confirmed that Tatyana Kosheleva will not participate in the upcoming FIVB World Championship. The 29-year-old outside hitter, one of the best in the world at her position, tore her ACL in mid-March, forcing her to miss the end of the Turkish regular season. Although at first she was expected to recover in time for the WCH, the player and her doctos have decided to take a more conservative approach to her recovery:

“Everything is fine, the recovery is going according to plan, it’s been four months already. I started working with the ball in my native Tula team, it’s a very comfortable situation. I exercise physically every day, I feel good, but I can not accelerate the knee’s healing process, it takes time. I am close to 100%, I started jumping, running, moving, even falling, but all at a gradual pace. But I still cannot play at a competitive level.

We talked with Vadim Pankov and said I was not ready. Naturally, I would really like to help the Russian team, but at the moment it’s simply impossible,  I’m rooting for the girls, for the team, I wish them great success and I believe that our hopes and plans will be embodied in the World Championship medal.”

Kosheleva, who has recently signed with Brazilian side Sesc, was a World Champion in 2010. With her absence, the Russian squad, who is used on relying on Kosheleva for most of its offensive power, is virtually eliminated from podium contention at next month’s WCH.

Однажды, когда мне был 21 год, от взрослого и опытного игрока я услышала фразу :«становится трудно каждый год искать мотивацию для себя». Тогда я не понимала, зачем нужна мотивация, какие нужны дополнительные стимулы… Ведь это же волейбол, от него невозможно устать, думала я!)) Но бывает, что устаёт тело, и ваши с ним желания могут кардинально отличаться! Если не слышишь сигналы своего тела и идёшь наперекор, то случаются травмы! Конечно, это обширная тема, и дело не только в усталости, огромную роль играет настроение, желания, физические возможности, психологическое состояние и т.д. Волейбол – моя страсть! Огромная часть моей жизни! И все же я поняла, что паузы нужны. Иначе приходят травмы… Весь этот мой непростой опыт научил меня слышать себя, свой организм, доверять и помогать ему! Берегите себя, слушайте, вовремя реагируйте и продолжайте свой путь к своей цели! 🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐🏐 Once, when I was 21, I heard from a very experienced player the phrase: "With every year it becomes more difficult to find motivation." That time I didn’t understand why you should need motivation, why it would be needed additional impulses. incentives … It's just a volleyball, it's impossible to get tired of it, I thought!)) But it can happens that the body is tired, and your desires may radically change! If you do not hear the signals of your body and go against it, then the problems will come! Of course, this is a complicated and long topic, and it's not just about fatigue. A huge role is played by the mood, the desires,the physical ability, the psychological state and etc. Volleyball is my passion! A big part of my life! And yet I realized that pauses are needed. Otherwise, the traumas are coming … In the end, all my experience teach me to listen myself, my body, to trust and help it! Take care of yourself, listen it, react in time and continue to your way, and your goals!
