Tallest Female Player

Not Gamova!

Nelly Fonova Alisheva Tallest Female Player

According to Wikipedia, the world’s tallest female volleyball player is Nelly Alisheva. She is a middle blocker from Russia who currently plays for Omichka Omsk in the Russian Super League. Nelly was born on born December 20, 1983 in Lipetsk and she stands  2.05 m (6 ft 9 in).

We wonder if we get to see her playing for the National Team since she’s pretty young. She has the height but we hope she has the skills to become one of the world’s best blockers. We also wonder if she still needs to jump when she blocks.

We also wonder if she’s willing to donate some of her height to us.


Side Dish: The world’s tallest male volleyball players are Aleksey Kazakov & Dimitry Muserskiy,  2 middle blockers from Russia, who are  2.18 metres tall.

    Uh, Gamova looks taller in the picture by at least an inch. She’s not even standing straight and she still looks taller.
