Zoran Terzic was waiting for this moment since 2002 when he came to lead the Serbian national team! It paid off since Terzic won many medals with this team. This result is one of the most important in his career!

 

It's hard to find words. We are happy and proud. It was our dream. I have been the coach since 2002. We saw Russia and the U.S. win golds at previous World Championships and thought it would be great if we could do it. This is the biggest success in the history of Serbia women's volleyball. When I took over we were ranked something like 100th in the world.“

I am very proud of this historic victory. We played good volleyball. It was amazing. They fought well until the end. I'm proud we came back. It was tough. To be the champions is our dream come true. We have some special energy and have played together for a long time,” says Maja Ognjenovic, the captain of the team.

The MVP of the World Champs Tijana Boskovic has also commented on this big success:

It was a long road but we made it to historical success. I am very proud of everybody. I am happy and honored to be named MVP of the World Championship. I could not have made it without the help of the team, staff and coaches. This award will give me big motivation for the future. We played as a team and supported each other in difficult moments.”

Serbia player Brankica Mihajlovic:

I'm extremely happy and proud. We played well from the beginning of the tournament. Italy was strong. We showed our mental strength to come back and win.”

The Serbian team defeated the Italian girls in the final of the World Champs!

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
