The Tunisia Men’s Volleyball National Team has taken a big step towards qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.


Led by Elyes Karamosli (16 points), Tunisia beat fierce rivals and also the hosts Egypt (23 points of Ahmed Abdelhay “Salah“) in a match valid for the 3rd round of the 2020 African Men’s Olympic Qualification Tournament in Cairo: 3-0 (29-27, 25-14, 25-23).

Thus, the continental champions need to take only one set in the last round against Algeria in order to secure a berth in Tokyo. As for Egypt, their chances of going to the Olympics have vanished with the defeat today. Algeria, on the other hand, still can hope of acquiring the ticket for the Olympics but must sweep Tunisia in the last round.

2020 African Men’s Volleyball Olympic Qualifier – Round 3

Cameroon – Algeria 0-3 (16-25, 16-25, 17-25)

Egypt – Tunisia 0-3 (27-29, 14-25, 23-25)

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
