  • FIVB released the official post-Olympic ranking here. I was wrong about one thing, though. Ghana, not Bulgaria, is the team with the biggest drop (17 places) :D Bulgaria comes second in that negative ranking and is now 16th. But if you look at the placements in all these tournaments forming this position and its respective number of points (although for some reason continental championships are not counted...), then we can say it is fair and square. Mexico, Egypt, Canada, and Iran with great new positions.
