Team profile

The German Volleyball Association had limited time to put together a strong team for the U23 World Championship. In cooperation with the German National League, a young team was formed. Only two of the players – Saskia Radzuweit and Lisa Gründing – were born in 1991; the other players are considerably younger.

The youngest member of the team is Wiebke Silge, who is only 17 years old. Jennifer Geerties (19) will lead the German team as captain. The outside hitter was in the German squad that took the silver medal at this year’s European Championship. The goal of Jens Tietböhl’s team is to reach the quarterfinals at this inaugural U23 World Championship.

Coach profile

Jens Tietböhl, who will be 52 on October 27, has been a national coach with the German Volleyball Association for almost 15 years, mainly training young players. “It is my goal that as many players as possible claim a place in the women’s national team,” says Tietböhl.

Atika Bouagaa, Cornelia Dumler, Kathy Radzuweit, Tina Gollan, Domenice Steffen, Mareen Apitz, Maren Brinker, Lenka Dürr and Saskia Hippe are among the many national-team players who have been trained by Tietböhl. His greatest success as a national coach was Germany’s sensational win at the U18 European Championship in 2007.

Lenka Dürr and Saskia Hippe were on that winning team and were also part of the team that won the silver medal at this year’s European Championship. Tietböhl was born in Kleinmachnow and is married with one child.
