The U.S. National Team claimed the silver medal at the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Cup, Russia finished third.

 

By defeating Korea 3-1 (25-21, 25-16, 16-25, 25-22), in Osaka, on the last day of the 12-team round-robin tournament in Japan, the National Team of the United States pocketed silver medal. The USA finished at 10-1, suffering their only loss to titleholders China. Thus, the North American side have reached the podium at the World Cup for the fifth consecutive time. Andrea Drews led the USA to the win with 24 points, while Chiaka Ogbogu set up as much as 7 kill blocks! Park Jeong-Ah noted 15 points for South Korea who came in sixth with 6-5.

The USA got help from Brazil who downed Russia and rejected their silver medal hopes. Thanks to Lorenne Teixeira who scored 19 points and Mara Leão who made 5 kill blocks, the “Seleção” beat Russia in four sets, partially 28-26, 25-20, 21-25 and 25-19. With this, Brazil finished the competition in fourth position with 7-4 but also prevented “Zbornaya” from taking silver. Nataliya Goncharova tallied 21 points in the match for the team coached by Sergio Busato, who had to settle for a bronze medal with 8-3.

China secured the gold medal yesterday and kept the perfect score in the competition (11-0). Lang Ping’s girls swept Argentina in three sets (25-17, 25-14, 25-12) with Gong Xiangyu notching 15 points and Yan Ni making 5 kill blocks. Lucía Fresco scored 13 points for the “Las Panteras”.

False statement World of Volley. After beating Korea, USA already secured silver medal a few hours before Russia vs Brazil match was even played. Going into the match Russia already knew they have bronze medal. Just want to make sure facts are straight here!!

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
