Lang, who coached the US women’s team to silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, also said that USA’s Destinee Hooker, Korea’s Kim Yeon-Koung and Turkey’s Neslihan Darnel are the three players most likely to have the ability to change games for their sides.
“I knew Neslihan when she was 19 and she played very well in the Italian League,” she said. “She is a very talented left-hand hitter, having good control of front row and back row defence. It’s really hard to stop her over the net. She has had quite a few top scoring performances in major international events, I believe she will excel in London.”
