i saw on wikipedia that in the 2nd match, CHN had no trouble with KAZ. and a few weeks ago, KAZ finished 2nd at AVC and CHN, 8th. weird... also noticed KAZ has a 7-footer MB (212 cm)???? that's crazy tall... is he any good?

QAT players are all from balkans, brazil and africa...
that's because of the AVC format of the competition, in second round you can lose all 3 matches and still you will have a chance in quarterfinal. Kazahstan was lucky to face Chinese Taipei in QF and they had one great match vs Korea in SF. if we had all top 10 teams playing in a round robin, China probably would finish 3rd or 4th, Kazakhstan 7th or something like that.

mosi, but what you say also applies to the olympics.

the AVC had some weird results. TPE beat both CHN and AUS in first round... then all 4 teams in pool E beat all teams in pool F to make the semis (that happened in the olympics too, in the women's tournament). also INA eliminated IRN... etc.

CHN and AUS didn't do well in that tournament... also QAT eliminated in first round by KAZ and INA.

i see on wikipedia IRN beat KOR 3-0 and CHN beat QAT 3-0. seems like these two teams will qualify to WCh.

IRN and CHN qualified to the WCh 2018 (joining JPN and AUS), they beat QAT, KOR and KAZ.

i guess now all european and asian teams are finished with Q, one slot left in s. america, and all of NORCECA and africa still to go.

The final south american qualifier started already between Argentina, Chile and Venezuela.

in the first game ARG 3-1 CHI. Then yesterday there was upset and Chile defeated Venezuela 3-0! Venezuela is already out with this result.

In the final match ARG-VEN, ARG will qualify just by winning 2 sets. If VEN wins 3-0 or 3-1, then CHI qualifies.

Great, it would have been quite sad not to have the Argentinians (with no offense for everybody else)!
