The Chinese women’s volleyball national team has claimed the bronze medal at the World Championship in Japan.

 

They have defeated the Netherlands in straight sets: 25-22, 25-19, 25-14.

Obviously, the Dutch girls didn’t have enough strength to overcome yesterday’s defeat against Serbia in the semifinals. They underperformed today, making a job much easier for the Olympic Champions China.

The top scorer of the game was Yingying Li, who ended the game with 20 points. In the Netherlands, Lonneke Sloetjes has won the 15 points.

The result marked the first time that China, a two-time champion, has won the bronze medal at the World Championship. Despite the loss, the Dutch recorded their best finish ever in the event with fourth place.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
