2020 Olympic Games - Tokyo (Female)

  • Boskovic means Business

  • Boskovic is visibly on the verge - in case this game unravels beyond the third set - of annihilating the previous OG-scoring record for a single game achieved by Marianne Steinbrecher, 37 points, back in 2004.

    I think Barbara Jelic scored more than 40 points against China in Sidney 2000.

    I found the article which says Mari is holding the record with 61% in attack, 31/51. Overall.

    Ah, its possible. However, I obtained the information from here (perhaps they forgot to mention Jelic): https://en.volleyballworld.com…-on-in-women-s-volleyball


    This is the official site for Tokyo OG; rather unprofessional given such a context to provide disinformation/inaccurate data.

  • I checked it up now. Barbara Jelic (CRO) scored 44 pts vis-a-vis China in OG 2000. Even more outstandingly, Barbara attained this mark in a 4-set game (!). This ought to be the correct number to excel for either Boskovic or Egonu during this tournament.

  • some definitely are, but I also think it’s the way she turns her hands when she sets sometimes that makes it look more like lifting than it really is

    I have pointed this out the other day, definitely setting as if she's playing beach.

    Barbara Jelic the Queen. And what She would done if She had help in NT…

  • I'm gonna say it again, Japan is missing Miyashita, in the absence of Sato there's no way she shouldn't be there.


    So far this match it's a mirror of all the olympic cicle of Japanese girls, it's like an roller coaster, they can play good and awful at the same set, lack constancy.

    Did she retire already? I havent been able to follow Japan since 2018 but in 2017 they were already lacking power.
