Cameroon won their 2nd match in the 2020 African Women’s Volleyball Olympic Qualifier at home in Yaoundé.


Cameroon dominated Nigeria in Round 2 of the 2020 African Women’s Olympic Qualification Tournament. Led by an experienced Stephanie Fotso Mogoung and teenager Ruth Manuela Marie Bibinbe (9 points apiece), the “Les Lionnes” beat Nigeria with 3-0 (25-12, 25-10, 25-8). Thanks to Mercy Moim (14 points), Kenya defeated Botswana in the other match of the 2nd day in straight sets and also reached a perfect record: 3-0 (25-17, 25-19, 25-18).

Knowing that Cameroon and Kenya are 2 major favorites of the tournament, their encounter today will probably be decisive in terms of qualification for the Olympics from Africa.

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
