Boskovic Is Named World Championship MVP For The Second Time
BOSKOVIC – The 2018 edition of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championships featured several repeats from the previous year’s competition, including Serbia’s triumph in the 2022 edition.
After leading her national side to a perfect record in both the Netherlands and Poland, star opposite Tijana Boskovic was once again named the Most Valuable Player on Saturday. She had already won this honor four years ago.
The opposite, who is now 25 years old, has become only the second player in the history of the World Championship to win the Most Valuable Player award in multiple iterations of the competition. His accomplishment mirrors that of Regla Torres, a Cuban middle blocker, who won the award in both 1994 and 1998.
Boskovic was one of three players from Serbia to be chosen for the tournament’s Dream Team. The team also included two athletes from the country that finished in second place, Brazil, and two more athletes from the country that took third place, Italy.
Best Setter: Bojana Drca (Serbia)
Best Opposite: Tijana Boskovic (Serbia)
Best Outside Hitters: Gabriela ‘Gabi’ Guimaraes (Brazil) and Myriam Sylla (Italy)
Best Middle Blockers: Ana Carolina ‘Carol’ da Silva (Brazil) and Anna Danesi (Italy)
Best Libero: Teodora Pusic (Serbia)
MVP: Tijana Boskovic (Serbia)
With 240 points over the course of the 19th World Championship, Boskovic finished in third place in the standings for points scored (219 kills, 13 blocks, eight aces). The fact that the next Serbian on the list, outside hitter Bianka Busa, scored just 97 points over the course of 12 matches highlights the value that she possesses for her team.
After Serbia’s victory over Brazil in the gold medal match, she had this to say after the match: “I really like being on the court and I think that’s the most important thing.” “The only reason I play volleyball is because I enjoy doing it,” the player said.
The Serbian superstar, who led all scorers in the gold medal game with 24 points, scored 20 or more points in eight of the ten matches she started. She scored an impressive 36 points in the quarterfinals against Poland and then followed that up with 33 points against the United States in the semifinals.
Boskovic won the Most Valuable Player title for the fifth time in his career at a major national team or club competition. In addition to the two trophies she won at the World Championships, she was also named the best player at the 2016 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship, as well as the 2017 and 2019 editions of the European Championship.
