The Qatari National Team notched a second win in three matches in the Asian Qualifiers for the 2018 FIVB Volleyball World Championship in Italy and Bulgaria.

 

In Pool A, the only remained pool of the Asian Qualification Tournament, in Ardabil, Iran, the Qatari NT made another upset. After beating South Korea in the opening match, the team from the Persian Gulf downed the 2017 Asian Championship runners-up Kazakhstan 3-0 (25-21, 25-17, 25-18).

Thus, Qatar kept their hopes of qualifying for the World Champs alive while, at the same time, they shattered Kazakhastan’s dreams of doing the same.

The hosts Iran overpowered China in straight sets 3-0 (25-21, 29-27, 25-20) to achieve the second win in as many matches, pushing their rivals to the 2-1 record. A newly promoted reinforcement of the Polish side PGE Skra Bełchatów, Milad Ebadipour, topped Iran with 14 points.

The fifth contestants in Pool A (two best-ranked teams will advance to the World Championship), South Korea, had a day of rest.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
