A captain of the Chinese national team Zhu Ting has shared her impressions after winning the bronze at the World Championship in Japan.

 

We are very happy to finish third. I will reflect on my shortcomings so we can go much higher in level. In this competition every team was strong. We would like to work from the ground up with our volleyball,” says captain of China, Zhu Ting.

China coach Lang Ping: “From the first game to the last my players were aggressive and worked hard. There were many China supporters here. We played strong teams that gave us experience. I could feel the development of the volleyball world.”

Netherlands coach Jamie Morrison: “We are disappointed. I didn't think we played good volleyball tonight. This is not a proper ending to the tournament for the way we played. I will feel differently after a while, but I am disappointed now.”

Recall that China defeated the Netherlands in a bronze medal game.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
