China NT 2021

  • I think Lang Ping should allow all of them to stay and learn how to play volleyball from the starters...:lol:

    Some of these B team players having been training/playing with the starters for a long time already, but have shown no major improvements.

  • All of them, LOL.


    Jk, the liberos can stay, Yao Di can stay because we don't want Zhu to be lonely, Zhang can stay, Duan fang and Gao Yi can stay too.

    I love how Duan is just having fun with it. She has no pressure at all whether she makes the Olympic roster or not, but still performs. :lol:

    Me too. Gao Yi also has no pressure -- she'd love to perform, except:



    Thanks, Yao Di. Low sets to a player who can literally hit at 2.98.

    Shrimp! lol :rolll:


    I'm sure Lang Ping scolded Yao Di to set higher, but all she did was just smile back and continued to set low.

  • There is an almost ever true JINX... that if a team wins the WGP/VNL then the team can forget about the quadrennial events in that same year. So if the Chinese team is still eyeing for the high podium of Tokyo Olympics, then just have some good exercise here & leave early! That's what the SRB and the host team, ITA, are doing, they're even having the hermit state. Let the USA & BRA teams have their customary great fun here -- don't bother to intrude them :whistle:

  • They're coming!


    I just noticed that Lai Yawen is with the 6 players :P will she come along to Rimini? But I guess not


    Btw, a cool IG page of a Thai fan of the Chinese Women's Volleyball Team:

  • Picture taken before departure


    Yuan Xinyue looks taller... again...


    this picture screams starter for me, it just need a libero. This pict show the height difference contrast between the players. I thought it wouldnt be so different as we often see when they standing in the front of net.

  • The full picture, if any of you are bored and want to guess height.

    Looks like the five are all standing the same distance away from the camera (Ding Xia is a bit farther away)


  • Before the VNL started there was talk that a third or even fourth MB might be picked for the OG. After today’s match against Belgium we still don’t know who that might be, but she is not likely to be Yang Hanyu.


    On the bright side, Zhang CN probably confirmed her spot, with her best performance so far. The other OHs and OPs have yet to make an impact, and if the coaches are keen on another attacking player, they probably need to look elsewhere.
