Chinese Taipei won their first-ever Asian U23 Men’s Volleyball Championship.

 

In a duel between the two teams that were not among favorites to win the 2019 Asian U23 Championship, Chinese Taipei overpowered India by a 3-1 (25-21, 25-20, 19-25, 25-23) in the gold medal match held in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

Chinese Taipei, consecutive two-time bronze medalists, lost only one match en route to the final - to Pakistan in Pool C of the preliminary round.

The silver medal is India’s best placement in the history of the tournament, that started in 2015 and is held every two years, as well. They were eighth in 2015. The title defenders Iran did not send a team to the tournament this year.

Chinese Taipei’s Chang Yu-Sheng scored a match-high 29 points. Amit Gulia top-scored for India with 20 points.

Japan had to settle with the bronze medal after outplaying Pakistan by a 3-0 (25-18, 25-23, 25-18).

OQT M: Party in Bari - Italy wreck Serbia to punch last Tokyo ticket from International Qualifier

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
