    Poland on 11th place :( In this year polish women's nt played very bad.
    But... :D


    Sooo near to 3rd place 8)


    wow, poland is really closing in lol
    i was amazed at their blocks, in the match against china,
    poland had that 5 times efficiency of china in blocking
    thats the key in mens volley 8)


    i can sure that poland and bulgaria into top 3 in world cup
    i see so much potential
    their bodies are light, --look at those supermodel legs---made for higher reach and killer block
    so happy to see your NT play


    brazil with GIba and Dante, lots of experience, i must say
    italian players dont understand how did they develop those juicy chest, <--supermodel chest :mrgreen: while most teams dont have that????

    haha, i am kinda expecting the OG to come
    now women strong teams, we have russia, brazil, serbia, italy, china, holland, cuba, germany, usa.....the first time to have such amazing teams in a year


    in the past, only 4, cuba, russia, china and brazil.....so excited to see more surprises :D


  • yes i agree.
    poland is really good at blocking.
    they have also a tricky setter who could split the opponent's block.

  • oh 0,5 to Russia, we'are so close to the best finally :)

  • I didn't know that serbia is before us, maybe because of the 3rd place in the WC. And I also don't know why Poland is second, after this weak Euro.

    Maybe because the ranking is from July, so before EC. As I remember Bulgaria was 8th in EC, so that tournament didn't give you many points too.

    The most important 3:
    POLAND-SZCZECIN-VOLLEYBALL


    5th place - Prediction Game - World League 2011 :D

    Yeah, but I remember that Bulgaria was 6th before EC, but because of the world league USA is at 5th place.
