Team profile

 

Lokomotiv participated in the First League of the USSR Championship from 1981 and moved up to the High League in 1986, winning High League B in 2003 and High League A in 2004. They captured the Russian Cup in 2010 and 2011 and triumphed in the CEV Champions League this year.

Coach Andrey Voronkov and his assistant Claudio Rifelli recently led the Russian men’s team to glory in the FIVB World League in their first major tournament since being handed the reins of the national team in March this year.

Lokomotiv players Ilya Zhilin (opposite) and middle-blocker Artem Volvich were key figures in the Russia team that won gold in Argentina and then added the CEV Men’s European Championship title in September.

At age-group level Volvich and libero Valentin Golubev helped Russia win the 2013 Universiade title, while six Lokomotiv players were in the team that won the FIVB U21 World Championship in Turkey this year.

“Volleyball Club Lokomotiv-Novosibirsk are very proud to take part in the Club World Championship,” Voronkov said. “It will be the first time for us and we are happy to gain such valuable experience. Of course winning will be the best result for us.”

 
Coach profile

Andrey Voronkov, 46, is the head coach of both Lokomotiv-Novosibirsk and the Russian national team. Voronkov debuted as a volleyball player in 1984 and won numerous trophies, including the Russian Cup, three Turkish Cups, a bronze medal in the Russian Championship and silver in the CEV Cup.

He started his career as a coach in 2006 with Dinamo-Yantar. In 2007, Voronkov became a coach of  the Junior Russian team and took part in the European Championship in Austria and in the World Championship in Mexico.

Voronkov came to Lokomotiv-Novosibirsk in 2009 and under his leadership they had their best-ever finish in the Russian Super League (fourth) and reached the final of the Russian Cup in 2010, which gave them the chance to take part in the European Champions League in 2011.

After reaching the playoffs in 2011-12, they became champions of Europe the following year. Voronkov’s golden touch continued with the Russian team – whom he took over in March of this year – as they triumphed in the FIVB World League and then in the 2013 European Championship.
