The Canada Men’s Volleyball National Team has joined the party at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

 

The Tokyo ball was in Canada’s court on the last day of the 2020 NORCECA Men’s Olympic Qualifier. After prevailing over the biggest rivals for playing at the 2020 Olympic Games, Cuba, in the penultimate round of the qualification tournament, Canada didn't miss the opportunity to celebrate progression to the event in the Japanese capital on home soil in Vancouver. On the last day of the tournament, they smashed Puerto Rico by a 3-0 (25-21, 25-15, 25-15).

Arthur Szwarc was the top scorer for Canada with 13 points. Thus, Canada annulled the 3-1 win of Cuba against Mexico. The team coached by Glenn Hoag will appear at the Olympic Games for the 5th time, 2nd in a row.

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
