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)

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
