Chinese coaches need to develop their younger players with more proper skills
and athleticism and not focus on just height.
The likes of Carol and Gabi are the best examples!
Even though WYL performed better during this tournament it does not change the fact that her spiking actions are faulty and it does not matter how much weight she loses, there will not be much improvement in her!!
Of the younger brigade, I like Zhuang YS, she’s has a good spiking action, is aggressive and has an attitude!!! One to bring on for the future but alas she’s only 183 cm, and as my good friend and volleyball teammate, Julian Chow say, she’ll won’t get a look in!!
I also like Zhuang Yushan. She's got a fighting spirit which is nice to see in a young player.
She may not be popular like Wu Mengjie, but she's got the same potential not to mention has not had any serious injury problems. It concerns me that Wu Mengjie for such a young player is already in a knee brace similar to Zhang. And with China's overworking players she might have a short career if her injury isn't well taken care of.
