ASIAN CUP M: Historical success of Qatar

2096 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.

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
