China wins U20 Women's World Champs without conceding a set
News from the FIVB

Brno, Czech Republic, June 30, 2013. The gold medal of the 2013 FIVB Women’s U20 World Championship went to China, which was missing it since their first victory in 1995. This is the eleventh medal for China in this age group. In the final match they beat Japan in straight sets (25-13, 25-17, and 25-15) completing an outstanding series of eight 3-0 wins out of eight games played, a 24-0 sets record which underlines the supremacy of Jiande Xu’s team. Japan could not resist to the attacks killed by the Chinese ironclad.
In front of 4’000 enthusiastic spectators at Kajot arena, the two teams offered a great Volleyball show, with outstanding defense actions from both sides. Japan was never too close to China, despite their similar playing system. Attack, pass, block, serve, in any fundamental China was superior. Japan never gave up, trying to use all of their weapons but they had to face the incredible power of Ting Zhu, MVP of the championship, who scored another 26 points in this match becoming the best scorer of the event with 167 paired with Brayelin Elizabeth Martinez of the Dominican Republic. Zhu eventually closed the match with a block, her last point which ended a fantastic Sunday night in Brno.

Brazil, the only team to participate in every edition of the U20 World Championship so far, got the bronze on Sunday with a victory in straight set against Italy (28-26, 25-21, and 25-18). World Champion Italy, after their title abdication in the semifinal with Japan, left definitively the podium conquered in 2011 in Peru. For Brazil is the twelfth medal out of 17 editions (6 gold medals plus 4 silver and 2 bronze). The first set was the more balanced of the bronze medal match, an exciting fight which ended when Brazil middle blocker Vaquiria’s block on Anna Nicoletti finished it off at 28-26. Brazil was always ahead in the second set, helped by some wrong serves from Italy, which suffered this gap for the entire set. Rosamarie Montibeller did not fail the second set ball at 24-21 to make it 2:0. The third set started with a change of line-up for Italy: head coach Davide Mazzanti confirmed Alessia Fiesoli as opposite spiker in place of Anna Nicoletti, Laura Melandri as blocker with team captain Cristina Chirichella on the bench. Then at 12:7 the Italian coach changed also the setter (Chiara Scacchetti in, Giulia Carraro out). Brazil was leading 15:10 and it was clear that Italy was too far from the South Americans’ rhythm in this match. The second set ball was scored by Sara Aparecida Dias Silva from the right side of the net closing the crucial set 25-18 and sending the enthusiastic Brazilian girls to dance in their changing room.
