The hosts Thailand and Chinese Taipei filled the remained 2 spots for the semifinals of the 2020 Asian Women’s Volleyball Olympic Qualifier in Nakhon Ratchasima.


The last day of the pool stage was about to determine which other 2 teams, apart from Kazakhstan and South Korea, will play the semifinals. All 3 sides in Pool A had chances but the hosts and Chinese Taipei have actually seized the opportunity. Thailand didn’t want to disappoint the packed stands at the Chatchai Hall (5,000 spectators) and swept Australia by a 3-0 (25-12, 25-15, 25-13) to earn a top spot in the pool. Onuma Sittirak led the home team with 14 points. This outcome suited Chinese Taipei, who remained 2nd placed and will play semis, as well.

In an encounter of the teams that have already secured their spots in the semifinals, South Korea easily prevailed over Kazakhstan (3-0) to top Pool B.
