Update: Alessia Gennari will replace Valentina Diouf

What stupid decision. I really like how Valentina plays, i don't know how it's is possible..

Sure Gennari is now recovering from a knee surgery (but doing better and hopefully she will recover completely before the OG's start), but she's a better receiver than Diouf and we need more receivers in our team tbh. I'm sad for Valentina ofc, but I understand Bonitta's decision in the end.
It seems the other option was to leave Centoni at home, but he decided for Diouf.

I just looked on FIVB site, and now suddenly for quarter finals it says a2/a3 vs b2/b3, do i misunderstand something or there will be drawing of lots for the quarter finals for the second and third ranked teams?

yes it seems 2 matches in quarterfinal determine by draw because of betting programs , fivb wants to prevent predictable format, (one of their few good works!)

 

i'm not sure but i guess they did the same for the last 2 olympics

For sure in Beijing and London there was a drawing of lots to determine the quarter finals a2/a3 vs b2/b3.

Probably this time there will be the same procedure.
