Russia National Team reached the 12th Olympic Games semifinal in their men’s volleyball history, sixth after a breakdown of the Soviet Union.



In Rio quarterfinals, The „Zbornaya“ demolished Canada in straight sets, partially 25-15, 25-20, 25-18, and advanced into their sixth semifinal in a row at the Olympics! Thus, Russia successfully continued their road towards defending the title.

It seems that win over Italy, in the last round of the pool stage, was the last upset caused by the North American side which already made a historical success by qualifying for the quarterfinals. Canada committed too many unforced errors which obviously came out from the importance of the clash – 27 in only three sets!

Maksim Mikhailov topped Russia’s scorers with 13 points. John Gordon Perrin had 11 in Canada.

In semis, Russia will play winners of Brazil – Argentina duel (3:15 CET).
