WCH U19 M: Italy grab the crown!

516 0

Italy are celebrating the success of their U19 national team at the U 19 World Championship.

 

They have managed to win the gold medal after beating Russia in the finals 3-1 (26-24, 21-25, 25-19, 25-18). 

The 'Azzurri' wrapped up the competition undefeated with an 8-0 record, 22 years after their previous (and only other) success in the competition when Italy beat Greece for gold in 1997 in Tehran.

After losing to Iran in the previous edition of the World Championship for boys U19, Russia failed again in this year's edition since Italy were better in four sets.

After two sets, the game was tied but in another two, Italy simply smashed the rival to win the championship.

Alessandro Michieletto was top scorer of the game with 20 points for Italy, as his teammate Stefani added another 18. Ilya Kazachenkov was Russia's best scorer with 16.

Italy's attacking efficiency of 49% (50/102) was vastly superior to Russia's 37% (36/97).

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Kosheleva was without a doubt the most impressive player of the match Reply

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply
