Meanwhile, after the completion of the 2014 CEV U20 Volleyball European Championship – Men, Russia and Italy have kept their top two positions in the CEV European Ranking for U20 men, but Turkey has moved five positions up to jump into third place.

The European Volleyball Confederation published the updated rankings today taking into account the results of the two biennial continental competitions, recently completed in Estonia and Finland for U19 women and in the Czech Republic and Slovakia for U20 men.  Each of these rankings adds up the points collected by the countries from the last two editions of the European Championship in that age-gender category and the last two editions of the respective World Championship, including the entire continental qualification process.

With their gold medal from Tartu, Serbia’s U19 women were able to overtake Italy by the smallest margin possible – 2 points. Only another 2 points behind, Turkey completes the top 3.  There is quite a lot of movement up and down all over the chart, but the only new addition to the top 10 is  Bulgaria, which took the fifth place in Estonia to shoot five positions up to the seventh place in the ranking.  The biggest upward leap is that of Estonia, which has moved nine positions up to the 25th place, while three countries – Slovakia, Belarus and Ukraine, have suffered the biggest drops, each by ten positions down.

On the U20 men’s side, the composition of the top 10 teams has remained unchanged, but there has been quite a lot of movement within this section of the chart.  While Russia stands firm on the top, followed by Italy in second place, Turkey is the new member of the top 3, despite finishing seventh in Brno.  The silver and bronze medal winners of this year’s European Championship, Poland and France, respectively, have moved up three spots together to jointly occupy the sixth place.  The largest forward step was made by the Czech Republic – 11 positions up to the 15th place and the sharpest fall, 13 positions down, was experienced by Belarus.
