The South American Volleyball Confederation (CSV) decided which countries will organize Olympic qualifications in both competitions at the meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

 

The Executive Committee of the CSV, commanded by the President Rafael Lloreda and attended by the five confederation members, that was held in Rio de Janeiro formalized the decision on the organization of the two continental Olympic qualification tournaments in January.

Colombia (the city of Manizales) will host the Women’s tournament, beating the proposals of Argentina (whose federation President was certain his country will get the organization), Peru. In addition to the home team, Argentina, Peru and Venezuela will also play the tournament. Brazil is the only female national team from South America that already secured a berth in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Chile (the capital of Santiago) will organize the Men’s qualifier and will face Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. Chilean federation was the only one to bid for hosting the tournament. Brazil and Argentina have already sealed the two continental tickets for the event in Japan.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
