I always long to watch volleyball matches of different teams in FIVB World Grand Prix. I always monitor which teams are always qualified from Europe, Asia, North and South America and Africa. Last year was a clean finish for the Americans (USA) who bagged the title and Destinee Hooker (one of my favorite players) won the MVP award. It was a back to back winning moment for a gold medal since the team also won in 2010 and Foluke Akinradewo (one of my favorite middle blockers) won the MVP. Brazil is always their opponent in the final round.
This year’s grand prix is so exciting. All the teams are strong. They have the spirit to win in their scheduled matches. I like the teams – THAILAND, TURKEY, CUBA, and CHINA who remain strong after the second round. Turkey has its premiere in the grand prix after it won gold in the European League.
China and USA kept their unbeaten streak alive on Sunday as they finished the day unbeaten in the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix in Switzerland last June 17th.
China picked up a straight-sets (25-19, 25-17, 29-27) win while USA defeated Brazil (20-25, 25-18, 25-18, 25-20)
