1002 0

China and USA opened the Third Round of the FIVB World Championship and spectators in Nagoya really enjoyed in their match.

  

After five sets of the amazing battle, China celebrated new and for sure the important win of 3-2 (25-22, 19-25, 20-25, 25-23, 15-9) at the championship. Zhu Ting with 25 points and Kimberly Hill with 24 points led their teams.

Trailing 2-1, China took control in the fourth set with a strong serve and attack, with captain Zhu playing the starring role. USA had troubled China with soft tips over the high block throughout the first three sets but had reception issues in the final two sets.

China led 8-5 at the changeover following a block by Yan. An ace by Li made it 11-7 as China drove for the finish line. They closed it out 15-9 on a spike by Gong Xiangyu.

TUR W: VakıfBank picking outside hitter for next season – Bosetti or Balkestein-Grothues?

Outside hitter? What about Zhu Ting and Kelsey Robinson? It would be crazy if they are leaving. Grothues is older and short. Robinson is a great, hardworking all around outside hitter and one of the best defender on the back court. Is Isabelle Haak a done deal at the opposite position? Reply
