The Iran Men’s Volleyball National Team has qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.


The Asian champions Iran pulled off a comfortable straight-set win against the hosts of the continental qualification tournament, China, in the final showdown in Jiangmen. By beating China in a decider with 3-0 (25-14, 25-22, 25-14), Iran confirmed their superiority over the rivals knowing they defeated them in the pool stage as well. Actually, the team coached by Montenegrin Igor Kolaković finished the tournament with the unbeaten record (5-0), conceding only 2 sets throughout the competition (in the semis vs. South Korea).

Seyed Mousavi drew Chinese players crazy with the wall on the net as he made 9 kill blocks to score game-high 16 points. Jiang Chuan tallied 13 points for China. Playing in the Tokyo Games will be the 2nd appearance of Iran at the Olympic Games after the 2016 Rio de Janeiro.

BRA W: Two Minas players nearly get into fight on time-out against Praia! (VIDEO)

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
