The Chinese women’s volleyball national team has claimed the bronze medal at the World Championship in Japan.

 

They have defeated the Netherlands in straight sets: 25-22, 25-19, 25-14.

Obviously, the Dutch girls didn’t have enough strength to overcome yesterday’s defeat against Serbia in the semifinals. They underperformed today, making a job much easier for the Olympic Champions China.

The top scorer of the game was Yingying Li, who ended the game with 20 points. In the Netherlands, Lonneke Sloetjes has won the 15 points.

The result marked the first time that China, a two-time champion, has won the bronze medal at the World Championship. Despite the loss, the Dutch recorded their best finish ever in the event with fourth place.

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
