FIVB World Cup 2019 - Sept. 14 to 29, Japan

  • And Cameroon just multiplied its World Cup account by incredibly winning the 4th set 30-28 denying DOM's four match points, the match goes to tie break!


    Oh yeah, forgot to mention, they earn their very first point!


    DOM v CAM 3:2 (25 - 17, 25 - 15, 23 - 25, 28 - 30, 15 - 10)


    Who might have thought av 5-set match between the two ???

  • The sound mix on this FIVB stream is great. The ball hits are loud. And it's wild how equally loud the ball sounds when it hits the defender

  • That was the surreal match of the tournament so far :rolll:


    I went back and looked at 19-21 kerfuffle.

    18-21 #11 Bashorun serves for CMR.

    Brayelin returns it out of bounds for 19-21

    Bashorun goes back to serve approach bounce the ball and a buzzer goes off. So she starts her bouncing again and then senses danger and tried to serve it quickly. She must have thought the 8 count started over.

  • We all know that how it ended up when Russia brought oldies back in 2008. Artamanova-Sokolova-Godina-Gamova. China swept them at quarter finals.

    result wouldnt be better with fateeva-safronova-kulikova-pasynkova or other young player

    The team chemistry was a problem because the Italian coach did not understand the culture of the team, even though he was married to a former Russian player and assistant coach. The problem was not individual players, but the team deciding that they would rather lose than let him succeed.

    i dont think so. it´s olympics , the will to win is bigger than any resentment



    i like voronkova braveness but IMO russia will not win any important title with her and parubets as starting. Voronkova should improve her attack movement, she is too slow

  • It seems FIVB only wants to promote sharing of Highlight Reels on social media and count the hits to gauge success. Assuming not very many people want to watch full matches. Read some stats, watch a few highlights. That's all you need to know about the sport.

  • So China x Russia match has been delayed?

    Artamonova destroyed the team spirit when She decided to come back and took Godina's starting six position, excluding one of the heroes of the 2006 WCH gold medal.

  • So Busato sings the Russian national anthem?! Even Goncha who was naturalized she's never done it lol

  • It's scary when a team like China is taller than even Russia :white:
