1994 World Championships Athens

  • The 1994 final is another clash between the Dutch and the Italians.
    In my opinion, not yet the same quality of play as demonstrated in the 95 and 96 finals (European Championships and Olympics), but nevertheless still very enjoyable.
    On the Dutch side, Vandergoor is used as a wing/reception type of player (an experiment that only lasted during the 94 World League and World Championships).
    In previous matches in the tournament, they even substituted Vandermeulen for Held on the opposite position, which meant the Dutch line-up counted 4 typical middle blockers (Vandergoor, Held, Zoodsma, Posthuma).
    The Italians put Zorzi in the middle, while in the back he is playing his typical role as back-row attacker.


    Olympic champion Brazil finally clinches a dissapointing 5th place.

    (Possibly picture quality not the best in the first seconds(minute), but gets better quickly)

  • Great match between 2 very competitive yet different teams.


    The USA surprises throughout the tournament with a young team and very attrative play:
    very solid reception by Ctvrtlik and Fortune (2 sole survivors from the '88 golden medal team), scoring power mainly from the middle and from the back row by Ivie and Sorensen, and great setting by Lloyd Ball.


    Enjoy...

    Richard... would you have the 2nd Set among Brazil x Russia? Thank you for posting this game!


    I do have that set in mpeg-format. Unfortunately, it fails to convert properly to divx. The mpeg-file is way too large to post (about 1 GB). Sorry.

  • For me, 1 giga is not problem. In fact, i prefer it, it´s more hard to downloading but later, there is better quality.. and this is always the main!


    Do what you want, of course..

    Maybe you can split the file in 3 files (if it's not a lot of work I mean). Annyway, thanks again for all the good uploads Richard.


    Do you knwo if there are games of the ongoing European Leaugue of Belgium?

  • I uploaded the entire 2nd set (700 MB), so here you go: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AA0ZF4CQ



    (Not a second of Belgium's first Euro League confrontations against Germany on television. I checked the regional broadcaster ROBtv, but nothing.
    I saw the first match in which Germany was outstanding: Schöps unstoppable, Hubner 9 (nine!) kill-blocks, very solid service reception and serving throughout the match - top quality volleyball by the Germans. Fortunately, they used 4 substitutes on sunday and allowed Belgium to clinch a 3-2 victory)

  • Ok thanks Richard for uploading this and for looking at the European leaugue game. Maybe the European leaugue against Nederland will be available via NOS?

    Hi Richard, I can't download it since it's >500 MB and requires a premium account. Is there any other way for me to download it? Thanks!
