2020 Olympic Games - Tokyo (Female)

  • I don’t know if someone else has said/noticed this before but I was looking at the previous WCH and OG winners and saw that since 2010: the second-placed team at the WCH won the following OG (BRA 2010 and 2012, CHN 2014 and 2016), the team who won the OG placed 3rd at the following WCH (BRA 2012 and 2014, CHN 2016 and 2018), the 2nd placed team at the OG won the following WCH (USA 2012 and 2014, SRB 2016 and 2018).


    If we follow this pattern, this time Italy will get the gold (2nd place in 2018) and Serbia will finish 3rd (1st place in 2018) 😶

    Brazil was also silver in WCH 2006 and Gold in London.


    I think that be the silver increase the desire of been the number one. When you are number one you come to a relax situation and at the same time more pressure situation on the field.



    America and Asia have been dominating the OG. I see Italy as top contender because of Egonu and the great team besides her.


    Serbia seems to me more weak than in Rio 2016.

  • Another Djokernole pic w/ Eve Castillo this time 😊

    Novak Djokovic has a listed height of 188 cm and is almost as tall as Eve in this pic; the deviance seems to be merely two cm or so. Provided they have remotely similar footwear, its difficult to see that Eve acctually is even close to the height 194 cm as she is listed at here: https://en.volleyballworld.com…_elisa_eve_mejia?id=75464.

    Since 1992, OG champions have always been from Pool B.


    I have also find this interesting pattern:

    2004 - China, Rank 1 after prelims

    2008 - Brazil, Rank 1 after prelims

    2012- Brazil, Rank 4 after prelims

    2016 China, Rank 4 after prelims


    Since China is in Pool B, and the probability of ending at rank 1 after prelims is high, then following the pattern above they will be the champion again.


    Lol got so many free time today 😅

  • It will be a busy day as of Sunday, more sports kick off, not only volleyball... matches as early as 10:00 am Tokyo (UTC +9)

    and limited other activities under pandemic, thus watch many lives more hours

  • The women’s competition is starting later today and I’m just hoping that all the players from every team can remain Covid free for the duration of the games, and beyond. Also, I’m really looking forward to some exciting matches in the women’s competition...there was already an unexpected result in the men’s side, so who knows what’ll happen ?

She opened my eyes to the professional volleyball world and I knew from then on that was something I wanted to pursue. Well here we are, a short 6 years later, walking together at the opening ceremony for the Olympics. God creates the most unique connections in life, and I’m so grateful for them!)
