So yeah, yesterday...
They didn't play any WCh before 2006 and this will be only their 2nd olympics. Not to talk about Men's team, which has done literally nothing.
Compare that to Brazil, USA, Russia/USSR, Italy, China, Cuba, Japan, even Korea. Only Serbia has a similar short history like them but at least they have a strong men's team since a long time ago.
I mean, no disrespect, it's good progress for such a little time. But they are in diapers still.
Well volleyball is a sport of 100 years, so being popular in last two decades of it is good enough. Especially if we are talking about modern volleyball where it is being played on 25 points system (since 2000s I assume), Turkish Women's team has done some good work. I never write things about Turkish men's team since they have never been in the same level as women's and in this thread we are discussing women's volleyball.
