    Volleyball Women's World Champs: Thailand had no chances with Poles

    The white and red team defeated Thailand 3:0 at the Volleyball Women’s World Championships being played in Poland and the Netherlands. The team led by Stefano Lavarini will face South Korea in Gdansk on Wednesday.


    The Polish volleyball team started the world championships in Arnhem, the Netherlands, with a victory against Croatia. For the second group meeting, the white and red team moved to the ERGO Arena in Gdansk, where they beat the Thai team with confidence. Tuesday’s rivals of the team led by Italian coach Stefano Lavarini appeared to be a difficult opponent – especially after their sensational victory over the widely considered group favourites Turkey.


    Fortunately, the reality turned out to be different. The Poles opened the first set brilliantly and maintained the lead till the very end. The second part of the match took a different course. This time it was the Poles who had to chase the score, while the rivals even managed to win five points at the beginning of the set. Eventually, the scoreboard again showed the result of 25:17.


    The next set proved to be the last one. The crowd had a great time, Lavarini was smiling from ear to ear, and the white and red players confidently claimed another victory at the World Champs.


    Poland’s next match is on Wednesday against South Korea. In addition, they will also face the Dominican Republic and Turkey in the group.
