World champions Russia and World No. 3 Japan continued their winning ways on Tuesday, the third day of action at the FIVB Women’s World Olympic Qualifying Tournament taking place at Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.


Japan team recorded 17 blocks in the victory over Thailand to improve its win-loss record to 3-0

Both sides improved their win-loss record to 3-0 with nine points as the battle heats up for the four last remaining tickets to the female volleyball tournament of the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Since the event doubles as Asian Continental Olympic Qualifier, the top three teams at the end of the competition plus the best placed Asian squad not among the medalists will book spots for the Games at the UK capital.

Teams already qualified to London are Italy, United States and China as top-three ranked at the FIVB World Cup, Algeria, Dominican Republic, Turkey and Brazil as winners of the continental qualifiers and hosts Great Britain.
