Chinese Women’s National Team prevailed in a monster clash with the USA to finish Week 2 of the 2017 FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix – Group 1 in style.


In Pool E1, in Macau, the 2016 Rio Olympics winners China, helped by Zhu Ting, struggled to overpower the highlight of the tournament so far, the U.S. National Team. In a close encounter, in which huge battle was held in each set, China triumphed in the tie-break, partially 25-27, 25-23, 25-21, 23-25, 15-11. Even the element of a surprise embodied in Madison Kingdon, who scored game-high 23 points, was not enough for the United States to grab the 5th win in 6 matches. In China, Yuan Xinyue noted 21 points but Gao Yi was the X factor in the squad of the Asian side as she made 6 kill blocks and 4 aces.

In the same pool, the awaken Italy reached 4th victory in a row, after suffering two defeats at the very beginning of the tournament. They beat Turkey in straight sets, partially 25-13, 25-20, 25-14, with Cristina Chirichella notching 14 points. Hande Baladın collected 10 on the other side.

The Lube should change its name to Sada Cruzeiro, it is wanting everything that is ours. Reply
