Turkey sealed their second win of the 2012 FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix on Saturday as they dealt hosts Korea a 3-1 (25-18, 22-25, 25-21, 25-14) defeat in Busan on day two of the opening weekend.


Turkey – Korea

Polen Uslupehlivan topped scored with 24 points for Turkey as they moved top of Pool C.

Korea began the opening set well, taking the lead. But Turkey fought back, taking advantage of several unforced errors from the hosts to gain the opening set win.

Turkey carried that momentum into the second, taking the early lead. However the home side pulled even at 10-all and this time it was Turkey who were plagued with errors as they allowed the Koreans to come back into the game, making the score 1-1.

It looked like the third set would also go the host’s way as Turkey continued to commit errors, especially with their setting. However, they adjusted their attacking game to compensate and the move paid off as they regained t lead before eventually taking the set.

They then seized the chance for victory with powerful services and a high-flying attack. It was too much to handle for the home side as their defence crumbled under the intense pressure as Turkey sealed an edgy win.
