    Players fielded and players' individual statistics - look at the Wuhan host official website.

    For the match replay, can be watched at the Tencent video site: CHN v BRA - Group Match A (17 Oct).

    The next match of the women's volleyball is on 20 October, China will face Canada.

    Was it DOM that played excellently or the USA that played badly on that day that DOM could beat the USA unexpectedly (in a NT A vs NT A scenario)? :whistle:

    Hopefully a high resolution TV broadcast quality full replay will be made available so can watch it later on.

    DOM shall not escape from Tokyo 2020 now... I guess its women's volleyball team is really the pride of that small island nation :thumbup:

    EDIT: David-101 in NORCECA thread already posted the replay link.

    Cutest girl on chinese NT. Does she have an Instagram account?

    Regarding the superlative, Zheng Yixin's fans may possibly not agree :P

    No IG, FB, etc. But Gong and other NT members definitely have their own Weibo account (China's twitter equivalent).

    On October 5, China's famous actor Li Xian posted a photo of himself with the Chinese women's volleyball team on his Weibo, with the caption: "Girls on the court and the commentary stand, you are our pride! Come on, don't stand up, let's sit down and talk about the great news that China women's volleyball team is back at the top of the world!"

    Li Xian was pictured with Yuan Xinyue, Ding Xia and Gong Xiangyu, the main players of the current team, as well as the former team's captain Hui Ruoqi, now the commentator at CCTV Sport who also witnessed closely the process of the team's efforts reaching the top.

    In 2016, the Chinese women's volleyball team won the Olympic Games in Rio, and Li Xian once sent a message to the Chinese women's volleyball team, "After watching every competition on the way to the championship, I am really happy for them! China's First Women's Day Regiment!" (SINA SPORTS 05 OCT)

    The Turkish and Polish teams as the strongest contenders should reap benefits from this sudden head coach departure, with the Dutch team is ridden with some problems at present. Their replacement coach may not have enough time to work on the team for the Olympic qualifying tournament in January 2020 hosted there, the last chance to get the sole ticket to the 2020 OG.

    Jamie Morrison is no longer the coach of Dutch volleyball players. The Dutch Volleyball Federation announced this on Saturday (05 Oct). Support for Morrison in the player group disappeared last year.


    Morrison reacts disappointedly to the Nevobo Volleyball Federation:

    "For the last three years, I have been fully dedicated to the Dutch volleyball team, we have not achieved our goals in 2019 and I am responsible for that, I would have liked to finish the assignment that I started in 2017 towards Tokyo, but that is no longer possible."…layers-as-national-coach/

    CHINANEWS.COM, TIANJIN, OCTOBER 1 (Reporter Zhang Daozheng) Tianjin Bohai Women's Volleyball Club announced on October 1st that Zhu Ting will join Tianjin Bohai Bank VC this season. Zhu Ting will represent Tianjin Bohai Bank VC to participate in the 2019-2020 CVA Super League and the 2019 FIVB Women's Club World Championship.

    Zhu Ting, the captain of the Chinese women's volleyball team who has returned from the World Cup with great honour, also confirmed the news. Her next stop, she announced, would be the Tianjin women's volleyball team.

    Zhu Ting wrote on the public's "Zhu's line to quote" on the recent mental journey. She said: "Got the ticket for the Tokyo Olympic Games at the first opportunity and then successfully defended the World Cup title, on the surface, our 2019 journey is very smooth. But we ourselves know the most. Behind the joy of victory is the long and hard works of Lang coach (i.e. Lang Ping, the head coach). It is our team's continuous sweat every day. It is difficult to move forward in the process of constantly overcoming difficulties and pains."

    About the future, Zhu Ting said that the next stop is Tianjin. "I hope that every day will be rewarding after hard work. I hope that in the coming months, we will often meet in the Chinese women's volleyball Super League." (end)

    Hahaha funny bonus points for CUB and PER... pay attention to the "UPPER PART of TABLE" only, perhaps no one really cares the lower ranks, that's why FIVB arbitrary handed out some freebies :-) lol

    The Chinese Women's Volleyball Team is again listed at the World Ranking #1 --now comes with a rather comfortable margin-- at the latest FIVB Senior World Ranking for Women's teams published on 29 September 2019.

    Note: differs from the 2015 World Cup that allocated the equal 5 WR points for position No. 9 till 12, in the 2019 World Cup, FIVB changed the practice, the given WR points for rank #9 till #12 are 20, 15, 10, and 5 respectively. A more justified practice to award each rank differently. Others remain unchanged.

    Xi Welcomes Chinese Women's Volleyball Team After World Cup Win

    (Video is good even though the media mode does not display it correctly here! Just Click and Play.)

    Chinese President Xi Jinping greeted the Chinese women's volleyball team at the Great Hall of the People on Monday (9/30) afternoon after they returned home from a resounding triumph at the World Cup in Japan.…8123205.shtml#!language=1

    Some Cool Pictures of the Chinese Women's Volleyball Team

    The whole team posed together on 2019.9.29 sending their profound greetings to the celebration of China's National Day on October 1st, 2019. The banner reads "Happy Birthday To Our Motherland"

    The team and coaches were invited by President Xi to attend a reception to celebrate the China's

    National Day on September 30. Photo at the Fujian Hall of the Great Hall of the People.

    At 16:45, representatives of the women's volleyball team and coaches entered the Fujian Hall of the Great Hall of the People. President Xi Jinping shook hands with them one by one. After listening to the speeches of leaders, coaches and athletes, Xi said, "At the moment when the whole country is celebrating the National Day, I would like to first of all welcome you back and extend warm congratulations to you."

    President Xi hopes that the Chinese women's volleyball team will continue to work hard and make persistent efforts and he looks forward to the team's excellent results in the Tokyo Olympic Games.

    No wonder that the team took a chartered flight returned to China on a particular flight specially arranged by Air China in Osaka in the early morning of 9/30, arrived at Beijing Capital International Airport at 04:30 and went out of the airport at 5 o'clock. This is the first time that the Chinese women's volleyball team enjoys the chartered flight service. They were warmly welcomed by the fans at the Capital Airport at the early morning hours. Later, everyone walked to the side of the road waiting for the pick-up bus. Lang and Zhu were still communicating while waiting for the bus. Around 5:35, everyone started boarding and left the airport.

    NO kidding! That's why some smarter team fought so hard to get out from Pool of Death B and jump to the more comfortable host ship A :lol: Still not everyone is able to comprehend that phenomenon for whatsoever reason... :whistle:

    Keep on watching!!! The final Pool assignment will be done after completing all the continental OQT in January 2020. Let's just believe the arbitrary power of pool drawing fortune...:cheesy: if one wishes

    All the 16 players of the Chinese Women's Volleyball team got their medals, no player was excluded as some might have thought earlier (if followed the usual 14-roster).
