Tunisia won the back-to-back title in the African Men’s Volleyball Championship.

 

The hosts of the 2019 African Men’s Championship, Tunisia, captured their 10th gold medal and remained the national team with most medals on their account in the continent, overall (19). In the final, in the city of Tunis, Tunisia defeated the bronze medalists from the previous edition of the tournament, Cameroon, by a 3-2 (23-25, 25-20, 26-24. 21-25, 15-13) in one hour and 48 minutes of a play. Both sides progressed to the final as undefeated (5-0).

The opposite hitter Hamza Nagga top-scored for the titleholders with 20 points while Ismaïl Moalla added 16. He was named the MVP of the African Championship for the second time in a row. The setter Khaled Ben Slimene (named Best Setter) had as much as 7 kill blocks, which is a respectable display even for middle blockers, let alone for players covering his position! Besides Moalla and Ben Slimene, another player of Tunisia national team picked up an individual award. Anouer Taouerghi was recognized Best Libero.

The 2 biggest stars of Cameroon, Yvan Arthur Kody and Nathan Wounembaina, tallied 27 and 20 points, respectively.

Algeria won the bronze medal after they beat Egypt in 4 sets.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply
