Speedball Chekka defended the Lebanese Men’s Volleyball Championship title.

 

The top seed Speedball Chekka, who suffered only one defeat overall in the 2018/19 Alfa Lebanese Men’s Volleyball Championship (19-1 in the regular season and 5-0 in the playoffs), became the country’s titleholders for the third year in a row.  

Speedball Chekka swept the final series with No.2 seed Tannourine by a 3-0, winning Game 3 in front of 4,000 spectators at home ground in Hamat in straight sets, partially 25-16, 25-19 and 25-21.

Hiring Serbian opposite hitter Dušan Petković for the playoffs turned to a jackpot for Speedball Chekka as the best scorer of the Italian Championship this season dominated the finals, scoring 23 points (six aces) in a decisive match for the title. His compatriot Aleksandar Blagojević top-scored for Tannourine with 10 points.

OQT M: Party in Bari - Italy wreck Serbia to punch last Tokyo ticket from International Qualifier

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
