China and USA opened the Third Round of the FIVB World Championship and spectators in Nagoya really enjoyed in their match.

  

After five sets of the amazing battle, China celebrated new and for sure the important win of 3-2 (25-22, 19-25, 20-25, 25-23, 15-9) at the championship. Zhu Ting with 25 points and Kimberly Hill with 24 points led their teams.

Trailing 2-1, China took control in the fourth set with a strong serve and attack, with captain Zhu playing the starring role. USA had troubled China with soft tips over the high block throughout the first three sets but had reception issues in the final two sets.

This is probably record win in Volleyball: Vietnam give away only 5 points to rivals in entire match!

I have seen taller Indian women (Maldives). I guess none of them showed up at the court. You know you are in trouble when you are spiking up instead of down. Reply

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply
