The hosts Cameroon started the 2020 African Women’s Volleyball Olympic Qualifier in Yaoundé with a confident victory against Botswana.

 

The reigning African champions Cameroon wrecked Botswana at the start of the continental Olympic Qualification Tournament. Despite vying for a place in Tokyo without their best player - the MVP of the 2019 African Nations Championship, Laetitia Moma Bassoko - Cameroon had no problems in the opener, leaving rivals at only 4 points in the 2nd set: 3-0 (25-17, 25-4, 27-25)!

Kenya launched their #RoadToTokyo campaign on the right path, beating Egypt in 4 sets. Kenya are playing the tournament in Yaoundé without their major star Janet Wanja who canceled participation for personal reasons.

ITALIAN CUP M: Lube prevail in adrenaline-filled finale, Perugia’s 23-game winning streak over

One of, if not the best match ever. Absolutely brilliant play by both sides. Fantastic Final. Reply

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
