WAGNER MEMORIAL 2018: Poland defeat Russia to lift the trophy!

by WoV

The Polish men’s volleyball national team has won the 16th edition of the Hubert Wagner Memorial tournament.



In a decisive game, Poland defeated Russia in five-sets to give an injection of optimism to the fans before the start of the World Championship.

It was a very good game for the fans of Poland who almost lost their hope after seeing Russia taking the lead after the third set! 

However, we watched a completely different performance as of the fourth set! They started playing much better, without leaving a space to Russia to make a comeback or to win a game.

Artur Szalupk was named MVP of the tournament.
