My opinion growing up in the 80s Karch Kiraly two time gold medalist, probably would've won 3 if he didn't go play beach instead (he won two gold there)

Thats because Mikhailov wont have competition, Miljkovic is better than him, we saw that on European Championship, Miljkovic is a legend my friends. I think Bratoev shouldnt be the best setter in the Olympics, by my opinion Bruno should be the best setter.

Looking in this statistics Bratoev will soon be in the best setters categorie :D Don't think that this statistics proove something(how could Aleksiev take the best receiver award in WL?)Personally don't see big plus from this because Miljković is 32 but Mikhaylov is 24 so after a couple of years we will see how Mikhaylov is first ....

@andyz a bit off topic
Is Kiraly going to be the coach of women's team USA for real?? That would be so awesome.

Brazilians got advantage cause their history in NT, they got a good team (or god team sometimes :D)
and they always get qualified

there's a lot of good player that don't have any title cause they play in a minor NT (ex: Granvorka... do u ever seen France in a final match?) or they didn't play in a NT (a lot of cubans)

really interesting!!

bigger surprise to me: Mastrangelo twice best server!

@hanes, you're quite right, and I'll add that the spiker (OH and opposite) are favourite because they have more chance to get a prize, as best spiker/best scorer/even MVP. Setter and expecially Libero (they didn't serve and block at all!) had very few chance to won more than one prize, also because considering that exist "best setter" and "best libero" awards it's almost impossible for them to win an MVP prize. So or they get the "best setter/libero" or they get nothing.

of course Sergio is an exeption ^^ (when he was nominated MVP has the "best libero" award already exist?)

This report is a great and intresting thing, but you can't take this as 100% proof.
1.becouse usually the awards come only to the top 3 or 4 lands in finals, mabie someone was better who's team was 5th or 7th.
2.Some players can prepare for these competitions the whole season others dont have any rest.
3.You can't really say who is the best, becouse mabie someone had more triple and double blocks against him becouse the opposite team was focusing on him.

Karch Kirally, I agree with guys below. Even FIVB chose him player of 20th century. Also all the coaches think about him when they imagine an ideal player.

Cytat raylight :
I am scientist and I was suggesting something like Google page rank algorithm, which will weight the national leagues, so title in Italy and title in Izrael will not be equal; futhermore, it will weight all appearances of the players, not just the awards. It is not critical of your efforts, it is my desire to improve the ranking system

Weight of the league will be very subjective thing. Some people will think that Italian and Russian league have the same weight, some think that Italian is more luxury than Russian, others believe the opposite. I'm sure that will be people who think that Polish league should have the same weight like Italian and Russian. It is VERY subjective.
