2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

FINAL RESULTS OF THE ASIAN QUALIFIER Kazakhstan style -- "Boarding Pass" for the Asian Qualifiers - FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship Japan 2018 There's no upset at all in both pools even the order of winners follows strictly the ranks: Pool A (KAZ): 1. CHN 2. KAZ Pool B (THA): 1. KOR 2. THA If there's anything I wanna see is the FIVB/AVC to change in future to reflect the better and fairer qualifying competition, that is to merge the two small pools of 5 teams each into one bigger pool...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "vabo" Quoted from "samsara" just remember about the Saddam Hussein's baby incubator fake stories as well as the falsified accusations on his WMD possession Exactly this. North Korea is hell on earth, but even then the majority of things we hear of if are fabricated or hugely exaggerated. Can anyone explain me what's going on with team Australia? They've become complete garbage. The real hell on earth is the underreported YEMEN The Kangaroo Land may just possibly be undertaking a gr...

Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Just stumbled across this footage, from the last day of the FIVB Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017 During the post-match interview after lost to the Chinese team, the head coach of the Japanese team, Fumi Nakada, being interviewed by the Japanese media couldn't control herself and wept... See the dramatic footage here: Just wonder why did she weep before the camera? Did Nakada really think that her team could have won in the last match thus grabbed a medal, then felt that opportunity just s...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "Emil" OMG, North Koreans playing an actual international tournament... Do they get any horrible penalties if they don't reach the expectations? Because many years ago I heard North Korean footballers who played in the World Cup 2010 were punished somehow after an embarrassing game, I really don't know how it could happen in this century. I don't follow asian volleyball at all but I know the simple fact that Asian setters are amazing aka Takeshita, Feng, Tomkom and those Chinese, bu...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "Dr Organoborane" Is it just me, or does the North Korean team look more solid than South Korea minus KYK? Not only you... if you take out KYK then PRK can beat KOR :-) Had PRK played in Pool A KAZ they could have beaten the host and represents Asia in the 2018 WCh :-)

WOW! What a fun and refreshing trip by the Zhejiang team to spend some autumn experience in the USA :-) Well have a great recreational trip... lots of fun EDIT: just watched the match, the NCAA Division I American University team ain't so strong a squad.. the host got much better in set 2. that court is more a basketball one with the uniform color makes it hard to see the lines moreover under lowres camera... funny on how both teams made challenges under the inadequate equipment.. why not just r...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "ossubtus" KAZ level seems to have fallen a lot since they beat KOR in 2014 to qualify for the WCh. on the other hand, CHN and KOR seem to be taking this very seriously. CHN sent its A team (why? they could have won with the B team), and KOR has KYK in the team. Quoted from "jetmasters" You always bring your A team for World tournament qualifications because you can't afford any upsets even though your opponents are much weaker. Korea lost to Kazakhstan in 2014 with KYK so upsets ca...

The Rules - your opinion, suggestion

The Federation should REDUCE the rules to the minimum level with one sole principle in mind -- HOW TO keep the ball in play and make the game more interesting to watch without all those silly faults caused by various small detailed rules like those faults related to the center line etc etc..... In short they should review the rules and make that sport simpler. I want to see the players focusing on the play, keeping the ball afloat not touching the floor, instead of memorizing all the kinds of mi...

Quoted from "theloneracer" Quoted from "samsara" May I ask how did you insert such nice youtube link here since the board does not have a ready feature for that?

Chinese NT 2017

Think those new names, at least some of them, are the raw candidates for the NEXT Olympic Cycle, the 2024 Paris OG.... but perhaps one or two names may have some chance to compete for the 2020 OG roster??? In the meantime let's see whether any of the new names will show up in the 2018 WCh. Time will divulge A continuous relentless quest for new quality potential players will ensure the bright future for the Chinese Team for long long time to come... uninterruptedly from one generation to the oth...

Chinese NT 2017

Quoted from "beri" And here you are still being This conversation is stupid and more meaningless then U23 and WGCC combined lets just agree to disagree? On-topic: I was criticizing Zhu a lot last season but I have to say she is really starting her road to being a legend. Only thing is I hope it is not affecting the rest of the China players since all sets are to Zhu and she even covers a lot of reception lately. I can already see some players losing confidence and dedication. China although ofc...

FIVB U23 World Championship - 2017 |

Quoted from "ossubtus" LOL. DOM have 4 martinez! brayelin, jineiry, natalia and larysmer. brayelin is not playing in this match? So, are all these Martinez the blood sisters? If so then it's a strange phenomenon whereas a family dominating the NT It came out the SF match of TUR v DOM was the REAL final (while the host was a tame opponent in the final), it's a very tight match and the victory could go to either's side. It's a DOM's bad to lose the last two points in the 6th set rather easily aft...

FIVB U23 World Championship - 2017 |

WOW! The European teams are so strong; they are dominating the U23 World Championship... good sign for that continent since U23 is the closest age bracket to the NT state, just need one more step of metamorphosis. Poor BRA, the outright reversal of WGP F6.... this time the dragon slayer, CUB beat them to save the BUL instead... what a way to miss the tournament at the very end after leading all the ways in pool position... surprise surprise. Well, TUR will be the favourite to grab this title... ...
