Thailand shows strength and beats China – Web Volleyball

China were one set away from finishing the first stage of the Women’s Volleyball Nations League with 100% success. This Sunday in Ankara (TUR), however, the favorites took the turn of Thailand, losing 3 sets to 2, partials 25-23, 13-25, 14-25, 25-23 and 15-11 .

A huge result for the young Thai team, in the process of reforming after leaving the Fab 5, a group of five players treated as fabulous, who have contributed a lot to the popularization of the sport over the past 20 years: Nootsara Tomkom, Onuma Sittirak , Wilavan Apinyapong, Pleumjit Thinkaow and Malika Kanthong.

Thailand’s top scorer was against Kokram Pimpichaya, with 28 hits, 26 of which were on offense. Then came the Moskri Chatch-On tip, with 14.

China’s top scorer was Yingying Li, with 28, followed by his opponent Xiangyu Gong, with 20. The pair’s presence on the pitch shows that China used their main weapons in the Asian classic.

With 10 points, the Chinese are waiting for the last game of the United States to define the first and second positions of the table. A huge chance for the Americans to take the advantage, who will later face the good team of Japan.

Next week, China will face Belgium, Canada, USA and Japan in Quezon City, Philippines.

Thailand, who will be in the same city, will face Canadians, Poles, Japanese and Americans. There were three wins and one loss in Ankara, temporarily leaving the team in seventh place. Check Women’s VNL Ranking.
