FIVB Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

:CHN China won the title without losing any match, the silver went to :BRA while the :USA finished with the bronze medal. The other participants were Russia, hosts Japan and South Korea, who sent such a poor selection that they lost in one of the sets to China in 25-4. :lol:

IMPORTANT! Do you know (because I do not find it here as thread):

      Now is providing World Championship wemen U(nder) 23 years old  and Bulgaria is one of the three european countries casting...

Today is our 3-rd win, but this time over even Cuba! 

I personally do consider it for real good job as Cuba is among world volleyball powers ever!

Even more - also INTERESTING AND IMPORTANT!

This World Champonship wemen under 23 years tries to return the 4 of 7 games in volleyball!

This is experimental and the purpose is to be played less minutes as games are up to 7,

but points wanted are not 25 but 15 ....

what do you think, which system is better - the old or the "experimental'?!

Spoiler

:smoke:

 I'm with experimental , if they return service as usual , because it's one of volleyball major skills that can't be modified , these new rules really help small countries to compete with big ones and make big results

IRAAAN :IRI Another victory in the Grand Champions Cup, this time against the United States. They have 2/2 wins and  still have to play against the weakest Japan so perhaps this is the tournament Iran will finally win a medal in :champion:

@VolleyRuller96 Ferdinando De Giorgi lost his work as coach of Polish men's national team. 

Not really surprising after the EC. Hopefully PZPS will hire a decent coach this time. I heard Mauro Berruto is looking for a job in NT...

I heard that for the first time since "x" years coach of this team will be any Polish coach... I don't like this idea at all, seeing what Polish coaches did with women's team.
