  • Which one is that? Have you heard the U23 is going to be streamed?

    FIVB failed in streaming the U20 in Mexico last month even tho they said they were going to.

    Kk15 is talking about Men`s U23 ( Italy is not playing in this tournament ) and they are streaming all games on youtube.

    I don`t know if they will stream women`s U23, but they should once they are streaming the men`s.

  • I was wondering what`s going with China also, their results are very odd so far.

    This is Team B of U18 NT due to the time conflict with the junior event of 13th Chinese National Games.

    The roster of U18 ACH 2017:
    S - Zhang Zi-han, Chen Fang-lin
    OP - Xu Lu-yao, Cui Mei-chen
    OH - Sun Ruo-jing, Sun Xiao-xuan, Chen Bo-ya, Liu Jing-jing
    MB - Jiao Dian, Liang Wei-fan, Mao Jun-yi
    L - Ni Fei-fan

    The roster of U18 WCH 2017:
    S - Zhang Zi-han, Chen Fang-lin
    OP - Cui Mei-chen, Sun Ping-yuan
    OH - Che Wen-han, Fang Jing-yi, Liu Yu
    MB - Jiao Dian, Liang Wei-fan, Zhang Jia-xin, Sun Yu-qing
    L - Liu Jing-jing

    The reception of U18 NT in WCH 2017 is much weaker than the one of the team in ACH 2017.
    Ni Fei-fan is much better than Liu Jing-jing though Liu is as a receiver in ACH 2017 but the fact proved that she is not good as a libero.
    Xu Lu-yao's spike is better than Cui Mei-chen's.
    (In fact, Cui Mei-chen didn't play any matches in ACH 2017. The second OP was Sun Xiao-xuan when Sun Ruo-jing and Chen Bo-ya were two OHs)
    Two Suns' reception is better than Che and Fang Jing-yi.
    Mao Jun-yi is the best MB of the three (five) players.
    All is worse. It becomes too much worse.

    My favourite roster of Chinese
    male NT:
    S - Li Run-ming, Zhan Guo-jun
    OP - Dai Qing-yao, Jiang Chuan
    OH - Ji Dao-shuai, Xia Run-tao, Liu Li-bin, Zhang Chen
    MB - Zhang Zhe-jia, Chen Long-hai, Geng Xin
    L - Ren Qi

    female NT:
    S - Ding Xia, Yao Di
    OP - Gong Xiang-yu, Zhang Chang-ning
    OH - Hui Ruo-qi, Zhu Ting, Liu Xiao-tong, Li Jing
    MB - Yuan Xin-yue, Yan Ni, Xu Yun-li
    L - Lin Li

    My avatar is Jiang Chuan. I hope more persons love him.

  • What a come back by Serbia. Japan had 2-0 and I`m not sure exactly how much it was on the 3rd, but I think Japan had 23-18 or 23-19. Serbia won 28-26 and 25-19.

    Let`s go Serbia :box:

    edit: according to the Japan had 24-19 in the 3rd.

  • Dam it. Serbia setter was awful, played like Zinkovic setting every ball to one player only and not using the mbs at all.

    Japan had a lot of kills form the back row, that is something the Senior Team should start doing more often.

  • Wow, German girls surprisingly reach quarterfinals after their 4th consecutive tie-break match :white: OH Emma Cyris with 31 pts and over 50% in attack :super:

    It's even more surprising considering that the most outstanding talent of this generation, MB Camilla Weitzel, is not with the team because "she needs rest this summer because she played with the older generation last summer" (her mother wrote that on FB). With this attitude I don't think she'll get very far to be honest, if she can't even manage to spend a few weeks with youth NT, how is she going to spend whole summers with senior NT one day? And her "rest" was winning silver in the German beach volley championship of her age group :roll:
