Dmitry Muserskiy was
born and spent his childhood in Makeyevka.
Не started playing volleyball at the
age of 8 under the guidance of Boris Osnach. After moving to
Kharkiv, where he performed for the local “Jurakademia” in 2005 Muserskiy was
invited to Belgorod and spent two years playing in the second Russian league

In 2006 Muserskiy defended the colors of the junior

(Belgorod) in the Russian Superleague, but before the start of the new season

the Belgorod system. However in December 2008 Dmitry returned to “Lokomotiv”,
played the whole championship on the opposite position, won the 2008/09 CEV Cup
and was included into the expanded application of Russian team for the World
League. Unfortunately Muserskiy didn’t make his international debut that summer
because of health problems, but next year after a successful club season (5th
place in the top-scorers charts and the prize of the best blocker in Russia), Dmitry
was once again called for the national team of Russia.



On the 4th of June, 2010, in Yekaterinburg, in
his first match for the national team against rivals from the U.S. in the FIVB
World League Muserskiy scored 13 points and became the best scorer of the
Russian team that day. As a result of the Intercontinental Round he was the
best blocker (42 points, or 0.98 per set), third in the servers ranking (16
aces, 0.37 per set) and was the only central blocker of the tournament, who
entered the top-twenty best-scorers
. In the “Final Six"” Muserskiy again was brilliant
in blocking - 16 points and 0.94 blocks per set. As part of the Russian team he
won the silver medal of the 2010 FIVB World League.
