Serbia’s victory at the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championships wasn’t the only repeat from the 2018 edition of the tournament. Awarded as the Most Valuable Player four years ago, star opposite Tijana Boskovic did it again on Saturday after she led her national team to an undefeated campaign in the Netherlands and Poland.

The 25-year-old opposite is now just the second player to win the World Championship MVP award in multiple editions of the tournament, repeating what Cuban middle blocker Regla Torres did in 1994 and 1998.

Boskovic was one of three Serbian players selected for the tournament’s Dream Team, which also featured two members from runners-up Brazil and two more from bronze medallists Italy.
