2020 Olympic Games - Tokyo (Female)

  • i would have tried Ana Cristina as Opp and Natalia as OH

  • Now Macris is bad, Brait is horrible.. guys, you need more consistency with your opinions here, just saying :whistle:

  • Roberta should've started the 3rd. They need to change what hasn't worked in the 1st two.

    Up for this, I thought for sure Roberta was going to start set 3 considering what she's done on set 2. Might be a wrong move there be Ze

  • Women's final is kinda disappointing so far, compared with Men's final yesterday.

    It's like a class A team vs a class C team without real battles or surprises.

  • My favorite team so far in this tournament was Kenya, hope they get more recognition, all these teams flopped in my books (except USA, they really did well)

    Saying its Kenya may be a stretch :lol: but yea except for USA and Brazil I feel the rest had nothing much to show for this Olympics

    Except Boskovic, if any player not in the finals/Gold medal can win an MVP, it should 101% be her.


    Pity Kenya didn't win at least 1 set, they deuced with Korea in one and I feel they should've won that

  • I just feel like Brazil is allowing USA to do everything they want easily, their blocks aren't touching nor slowing down the spikes - its not entirely the libero's fault

    They're agitated and spiking too hard directly into USA's blocks instead of trying other things like feints/sideouts and switching it up


    But I want to say that I'm really amazed Brazil can play at such a high level despite the ages of their players almost all being over 30 wow

    Both in VNLs and Olympics, they really show that you don't have to retire once you hit your 30s/late 30s

  • JWO vs Brait 6:2 6:2

    Foluke vs Brait in back row defense 6:3 6:3

    Sure, I'm not saying that she's doing well today.. I'm just saying that 1 game isn't enough for people to do a 180 and start bashing people that they were praising before... I'm not a fan of Brait myself, but this is unfair

  • Congrats USA! The best team !

  • Saying its Kenya may be a stretch :lol: but yea except for USA and Brazil I feel the rest had nothing much to show for this Olympics

    No, they were my favorite team because they were the only one that could surprise me positively among all the ''elite'' settled teams, not 1 interested me this time. JWO for MVP bcs she did do just that!

  • Nope, US is just three levels over anyone in a playoff phase, great job by Kiraly to peak in a right time.


    France Men's team had bad group matches, but they adjust pretty well in knockout and won the champion.

    Poland Men's team almost got eliminated in round 2 in WCH 2018, but they won the champion.

    Same thing to China Women's team in Rio 2016.


    For a big tournament like Olympics or WCH, it's all about timing.
