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).

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
