    Semifinal of China vs Taiwan
    25:17
    25:13
    25:17


    yeah, china won in trs8 sets with the 7 OLD faces,
    the first time they met, china used subs to play taipei and won 25-17 x 3
    so, the coach is way too conservative :shock:


    yea, besides isreal, there are many teams that are not known to many volley fans
    i was kinda shocked to know so many new teams :D

    korea won the gold against china over four sets (25–18, 22–25, 25–18, 25–16)


    yeah, they are amazingly good at defense and offsensive is also very good, commentators said they learn all those defensives from brazil
    and their coach watched all videos about the chinese mens team in one night before the game begins 8)
    chinas offensive is too simple to be effective, i must say
    after 2 sets, korea just knew what to expect from china


    china really need to work on blocking and serve reception, i must say again 8)
    surprised korea didnt make it as far as japan, who finished at no. 5 only
