From Siberia comes these two mineworkers with a horrible reputation. Having
trained something that is similar to Slaughterball, using rocks instead of
the softish ball, they have a roughness almost un-matched by any other team.
Bulletins from TASS has promised a new era in the Championship history. CCCP
will be a very interesting acquaintance.
Since the early days of Slaughterball, Igor Konstantinov has been ranked
among the top players. But the results presents a star in decline. This year,
the merited double champion will have to show some improvement - or he'll
be in major trouble ! He has developed a new overhead serve which might prove
difficult for the competitors to decipher.
Vjatjeslav Molotov has much to prove. He is known for his brutal net play
and advanced smashing, but the moments of brilliance are unfortunately too
far apart. If the training in Siberia has given him some better strength to
last a full game, this player might enjoy his best WC ever. But stay away
from the Vodka.
