ASIAN CUP M: Historical success of Qatar

2172 1

Qatar are the winners of the 6th SMM Asian Volleyball Cup for Men in Chinese Taipei.

  

In the big final, Qatar defeated Iran after 0-2 in sets for the opponents. They made a historical success for their country by winning the first and only medal at this competition. On the other side, Iran did not defend the title from the last year. This match was finished after five very interesting sets.

In the match for the third place after so many "ups and downs", Japan outplayed the hosts in the tie-break although Chinese Taipei led 2-0 in sets. 

The same result happened in the match for the fifth place when Australia led 2-0 and at the end, Thailand won 3-2.

Kazakhstan without many problems closed the match with South Korea.

Very strange indeed. The team with Sabi, Tillie, Krick from German national team, Randazzo from Italian national team should not be the last in regular season (they won only 2 games) Reply
