According to Japanese media, it seems that China, Thailand and others bid for the 2022 WCH.
I read a post by some Chinese volleyball fan that the Japanese TV will NOT broadcast live the semifinal matches. Instead they will just focus on the match of the 5th position.
Must be a very disappointing miss for the Japanese volleyball fans if it's the case.
Is it true that the SF matches won't be covered live?
This is true. It only broadcasts to Japan vs USA. stupid, JVA and TBS
P.S. It is seen on a paid channel
I didn't expect Japan to enter the 3rd round. sorry Nakada. I'm surprised she rebuilt the team from the Asian Games.
and I loved the Russian volleyball in this WCH. energy, passion, teamwork, Pankov made a good team. I would like to see strong Russia in Tokyo2020. Japan and Russia ( Soviet Union ) played at the final of the volleyball's first Olympic Games in Tokyo1964 and made a history after that.
I hope the typhoon won`t affect the WCH.... but mostly important I feel so sorry for the people affected by it....I hope everyone is safe in Japan.
The typhoon is gone, today the wind is still a bit strong but it is sunny. There is less damage than last time. I think that arenas and hotels are not damaged. Thank you for your concern

Twitter of a TV station broadcasting WCH.
Probably this was recently taken. Koga is in 5 seconds after the start. Koga doesn't go to the Asian Games, but I think she is in the training camp. Let's wait for information on who will go to USA this month.
Hey! That's wild. I watched them and thought they were pretty good. They took a set from Hisamitsu! And I definitely noticed Kawai. Short one "i" but her name made me chuckle
There was some kerfuffle about how this team formed, I think. Like they bought out another team so they could jump to V2 instead of V3 or something?
Last year, they tried to participate in V2 by buying a team that became difficult for management, but they could not participate because they were opposed by other teams.
They will come to V2 without any criticism from anyone this year
I don't like Nakada's tactics. She may have been an excellent setter, but she does not have a coaching skill. I'm disappointed Japan got worse than last year. especially defense. Japan enter an easy group at WCH ( host country!! ), but it will be a difficult competition for Japan.
Araki, Nagaoka, Sato (setter), Nomoto, Kobata joined training camp.
Victorina Himeji's coach is Takeshita and general manager is Manabe. They will play in V2.
Kawai is a good setter. I'm looking forward to Takeshita's team.
