CONEGLIANO – Marina Lubian, born in Moncalieri on April 11, 2000, 193 cm, will be a beautiful piece of the new Prosecco DOC Imoco Volley 2022/23. Winning a fierce competition, the gialloblù club has taken the center of the present and the future even with the blue shirt, forming a central department within the young, futuristic and well-assorted national team with its usual teammates Fahr and Squarcini. In the last season the Piedmontese plant, currently in the Italian squad involved in the stages of the VNL, was in force in Scandicci with which he won the Challenge Cup and was confirmed as one of the young rampant in the panorama of our championship, showing its excellent qualities as a modern power, with important physical means, able to be very effective as well as with the fundamental of the block also in the service of jump, one of its specialties, and in the variety of attacks in attack. He will play with the number 9.
Marina Lubian’s youth career begins in Lilliput at Settimo Torinese, the team with which she competes in the A2 Series in the 2015-16 season. In the 2016-17 championship he joined the federal team of Club Italia, then in the A1 Series: the following year the Azzurri are in the A2 Series, but the 2018-19 returns to the A1 Series.
From 2019-20 the great leap of Club Italia on the Scandicci track, with which it gains space and responsibility in winning the Challenge Cup 2021-22.
He has already acquired important international experience with the azzurra shirt: in 2015 and 2017 he won gold at the World Championships, in 2017 he was silver in the European Championship and again silver in 2019 in the Under-20 World Cup. senior. , and it’s so compelling that coach Mazzanti takes her to the World Cup in China where the blue “seniors” get the silver medal.
Marina, how did the choice of the Prosecco DOC Imoco Conegliano come about?
The choice to come to Conegliano was a sum of factors. I think I will have the opportunity to grow a lot with Daniele (coach Santarelli) and all the staff but also with the girls who will surely be a key part of my growth and that of the team.
After so many challenges with Scandicci, you are now on the other side of the net, what effect does being a Panther make on you?
After so many times that I have challenged Conegliano, both when I was at Club Italia and in recent years when I was at Scandicci, being on the other side of the net now has a very special effect, but it certainly fills me with pride and I can’t wait to achieve all the goals we will set ourselves with my new club and my new teammates.
New team, new group to create to inaugurate another cycle:
For me it is very exciting to be part of this “new cycle” of the team, there will be a group with many new ones besides me and the stimuli are really many. I already know some girls and I think this is sure to help me, but I am very curious to meet them all soon and share some good emotions with them!
Do you like coach Santarelli’s game?
I’ve always really liked Daniele’s game, being central when I was on the other side was always hard to keep up with the Panthers ’fast paced game. Asia Wolosz is one of the strongest setters in the world, so I don’t think we have too much trouble finding ourselves, I’m pretty sure!
Seen as an opponent, what do you think was the secret to Prosecco DOC Imoco’s success?
Surely they have always had something more because they have played many years together, a solid group with excellent grafts every year, and they have been able to create their own game and a cohesion that was perceived from the outside. In addition to being individually phenomenal girls and great champions, of course, but in my opinion cohesion has been their strength, now it’s up to us to follow that track.
Programs of your summer between nationals and holidays?
For now the program is to participate in the VNL and then after a break there will be training for the World Cup, and then … we’ll see! By the way, I would like to send good luck to Sarah who I hope will be fine soon and we miss her so much!
To close, a warm greeting to your new Gialloblù fans …
EL Conegliano fans are always present, at home and away, I feel like helping the team at any time, with warmth and justice, even as a rival they have always congratulated me and have always been very athletic. So a welcome to them and see you soon !!
