Lausanne, Switzerland, May 2, 2014 - Dinamo Kazan have had a busy build up to the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship Zurich 2014, which begins on May 7.

This was followed by a more closely disputed result of 3-1 (25:22, 20:25, 25:19, 25:13) on April 28, before Dinamo Kazan won away to Dynamo Krasnodar on May 1 0:3 (13:25, 21:25, 19: 25).

The final of the Russian championship has been scheduled for later this month. In the meantime, Dinamo Kazan, who are the 2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League winners, will be participating in the Club World Championship.

With Russian internationals on their team, including captain Maria Borodakova and Ekaterina Gamova, and the USA’s Jordan Quinn Larson-Burbach, the team from Kazan is among the competition’s favourites.
