it is not fair that South Korea got the Wild Card. It should be Serbia ranked in 3rd.

And with China hosting the GP Finals, I bet Lang Ping will send a B team to Japan.

Japan always selects teams that they have higher chances of beating, usually South Korea or some team from the Americas. So far all the wildcards finished fifth or sixth and South Korea is receiving its 5th wildcard. Don't expect European teams to get selected.

Wonder who's this Japanese cutie, seems an official, not a player.

For the sake of the tournament's title name "GRAND Champions Cup", the Serbian team should be here instead of the Korean one :cup:

Guys, South Korea got any edition the wild card for this tournament from 1997 to 2009. That's all.

@Ryu Takamiya, thank you for informing her name :-)


Another "grand or world" FIVB tournament means another great entertainment, tho I have lowered down my expectation for the "grandness" having read all the posts here :-) I just hope all participants will be able to send quality, at least decent, line-ups there.

FIVB really loves those "high attributes", casual readers will hardly digest the significance of each :cheesy:

- World Championships
- World Cup
- World Grand Champions Cup
- World Grand Prix

I just guess that it's the correct order of significance (between the WGCC vs WGP)... ha ha ha

No. World Championships are in 2018 and World Cup is in 2019. This is the one year in the Olympic cycle without a major world competition.

This year we will have World Championships qualifying which most teams will send their A team for. World Grand Prix is for A teams but most coaches will give a chance to the younger players as well. World Grand Champions Cup will also have some A team players I guess but it is not really a major competition so some players will probably skip it.

Also we will have continental competitions. A teams will certainly play at the European Championships.

I heard in an interview that Lang Ping was looking forward to her come back for the WGCP!! :super: Still, I don't think she will ever be close to her level of 2013 but nevertheless, giving the (few) options that China has right now, she is a better choice than any Liu or LI or Wang Yunlu :lol:

BTW I'm an Italian Born Chinese and I can say... FORZA LUBEEEEEE :heart:

Japanese roster:

S - Koyomi Tominaga, Miya Sato
OP- Risa Shinnabe, Mari Horikawa
OH- Yurie Nabeya, Yuki Ishii, Mami Uchiseto, Rika Nomoto
MB- Nana Iwasaka (C), Erika Araki, Haruyo Shimamura, Mai Okumura
L - Kotoe Inoue, Mako Kobata

From Asian Championships,
Koga(OH) and R.Ishii(OP) out, Y.Ishii(OH) and Horikawa(OP) in

Koga has pain in the outer ligament of her right knee after she injured it during ACH, that's why she isn't in the roster.

I was hoping for the return of Arisa. I guess she's gone the way of Miyashita.

Sad for me that the four players I liked the most from my introduction to the team last year are all MIA for one reason or another:

Saori
Saori Sakoda
Arisa
Miyashita

Happy to see Mari Horikawa back
