Former captain of China Hui Ruoqi is trying to earn a spot in the China women’s national squad for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, after undergoing heart surgery.


Ruoqi Hui has a lot of work to do after eight months of absence.

She is training a lot better than she first returned to the squad (after surgery) but we still have to monitor her condition closely,” said China head coach Lang Ping said.

After all, she has not played for a year. She will get more playing time when we compete at the Montreux Volley Masters in Switzerland next week. She needs to get her feeling back for the game. She needs time to get her skills back and improve understanding her team-mates. She has to work hard.

Hui joined the training since last April and hopes to help her team follow-up on their Athens 2004 gold medal performance. The final selection of players for Rio 2016 is still up in the air.

We will decide the squad probably after the World Grand Prix and select the best 12 players for Rio 2016,Lang said.

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
