    NO: 67%

    * We are a few days away from the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Cup Japan 2015. Who do you think is favourite to take the title?

    CHN 39% | CUB 1% | DOM 1% | JPN 7% | KOR 7% | PER 6% | RUS 12% | SRB 1% | USA 25%

    I'm rather surprised that CHN is voted with higher winning odds than USA :P

    Top-4 : CHN USA RUS SRB

    Lesser teams: JPN DOM KOR ARG PER CUB

    Great losers: KEN ALG

    Interestingly, this will be China's first World Cup after Lang Ping's return as head coach of China's women's team in 2013.
    Their record of Three Gold, One Silver and Two Bronze means they have won more World Cup medals than any other country. <Wow!>

    Hi everyone! I am samsara not from China yet an ardent supporter of the Chinese women's volleyball team :-)

    Can't remember the precise year I started to fall in love with this team, but possibly when I watched casually their plays during the 2014 Women's Volleyball World Championship... the new generation of the lovely Hui Ruoqi et al.

    I love watching women's volleyball and talk about it, and I find this forum is great for all the volleyball talks and carries lots of info, many kinds, incl. the tournament specifics and the technical aspects as well. I am just a beginner, a spectator of volleyball match and still learning enthusiastically to better understand and enjoy the game :-)

    Cheers all!
