  • The Dutch team once again proved itself as a formidable opponent to the Chinese team. As the widely quoted analyses among the Chinese sport media, both the media and the coaching team took the Dutch team very seriously, They all sensed that the Dutch team wouldn't be an easy opponent, and victory would be a struggling fighting, far from an easy trip. Good that mentality strength of the Chinese team is very strong and they took the challenge patiently to get through it. And Lang is a very keen coach!


    Now passing the NED team, the Gold medal is almost on hand. Tomorrow's match against the SRB team will confirm the outcome officially!


    CHN 9-0 / 26 pts / set ratio 27-3

    USA 8-1 / 22 pts / set ratio 24-9

  • Some Cool Pictures of the Chinese Women's Volleyball Team

    At 16:45, representatives of the women's volleyball team and coaches entered the Fujian Hall of the Great Hall of the People. President Xi Jinping shook hands with them one by one. After listening to the speeches of leaders, coaches and athletes, Xi said, "At the moment when the whole country is celebrating the National Day, I would like to first of all welcome you back and extend warm congratulations to you."

    President Xi hopes that the Chinese women's volleyball team will continue to work hard and make persistent efforts and he looks forward to the team's excellent results in the Tokyo Olympic Games.


    No wonder that the team took a chartered flight returned to China on a particular flight specially arranged by Air China in Osaka in the early morning of 9/30, arrived at Beijing Capital International Airport at 04:30 and went out of the airport at 5 o'clock. This is the first time that the Chinese women's volleyball team enjoys the chartered flight service. They were warmly welcomed by the fans at the Capital Airport at the early morning hours. Later, everyone walked to the side of the road waiting for the pick-up bus. Lang and Zhu were still communicating while waiting for the bus. Around 5:35, everyone started boarding and left the airport.

  • The Chinese Women's Volleyball Team is again listed at the World Ranking #1 --now comes with a rather comfortable margin-- at the latest FIVB Senior World Ranking for Women's teams published on 29 September 2019.




    Note: differs from the 2015 World Cup that allocated the equal 5 WR points for position No. 9 till 12, in the 2019 World Cup, FIVB changed the practice, the given WR points for rank #9 till #12 are 20, 15, 10, and 5 respectively. A more justified practice to award each rank differently. Others remain unchanged.

    How it is that Cuba and Perù have 5 points from Wcup 2019???

  • Hahaha funny bonus points for CUB and PER... pay attention to the "UPPER PART of TABLE" only, perhaps no one really cares the lower ranks, that's why FIVB arbitrary handed out some freebies :-) lol

  • CHINANEWS.COM, TIANJIN, OCTOBER 1 (Reporter Zhang Daozheng) Tianjin Bohai Women's Volleyball Club announced on October 1st that Zhu Ting will join Tianjin Bohai Bank VC this season. Zhu Ting will represent Tianjin Bohai Bank VC to participate in the 2019-2020 CVA Super League and the 2019 FIVB Women's Club World Championship.


    Zhu Ting, the captain of the Chinese women's volleyball team who has returned from the World Cup with great honour, also confirmed the news. Her next stop, she announced, would be the Tianjin women's volleyball team.


    Zhu Ting wrote on the public's "Zhu's line to quote" on the recent mental journey. She said: "Got the ticket for the Tokyo Olympic Games at the first opportunity and then successfully defended the World Cup title, on the surface, our 2019 journey is very smooth. But we ourselves know the most. Behind the joy of victory is the long and hard works of Lang coach (i.e. Lang Ping, the head coach). It is our team's continuous sweat every day. It is difficult to move forward in the process of constantly overcoming difficulties and pains."


    About the future, Zhu Ting said that the next stop is Tianjin. "I hope that every day will be rewarding after hard work. I hope that in the coming months, we will often meet in the Chinese women's volleyball Super League." (end)

  • On October 5, China's famous actor Li Xian posted a photo of himself with the Chinese women's volleyball team on his Weibo, with the caption: "Girls on the court and the commentary stand, you are our pride! Come on, don't stand up, let's sit down and talk about the great news that China women's volleyball team is back at the top of the world!"


    Li Xian was pictured with Yuan Xinyue, Ding Xia and Gong Xiangyu, the main players of the current team, as well as the former team's captain Hui Ruoqi, now the commentator at CCTV Sport who also witnessed closely the process of the team's efforts reaching the top.


    In 2016, the Chinese women's volleyball team won the Olympic Games in Rio, and Li Xian once sent a message to the Chinese women's volleyball team, "After watching every competition on the way to the championship, I am really happy for them! China's First Women's Day Regiment!" (SINA SPORTS 05 OCT)

  • Cutest girl on chinese NT. Does she have an Instagram account?

    Regarding the superlative, Zheng Yixin's fans may possibly not agree :P


    No IG, FB, etc. But Gong and other NT members definitely have their own Weibo account (China's twitter equivalent).
