At exactly one o’clock this afternoon, the Americans clashed the Thai spikers in Ningbo, China for the FIVB World Grand Prix 2012. As we all know for a fact that Thailand defeated the USA national team in 5 sets last 2008. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7tQ4-0bvfs That was their biggest win in their volleyball history. Great job!
Since then, Thailand has been one of my favorite Asian teams in volleyball. I love Onuma Sittirak, Nootsara and Peumjit and Piyanut. However, my superb American team is always here. They won’t let Thailand nail them again. Hehehe 😀
The Americans showed their powerful spikes against the Thais. They defeated the former Asian champ in 4 sets, (3-1) 25-18,27-25,18-25,25-18. However, it was still a good job for the Asian team since they were able to steal a single set from the American powerhouse. According to US captain Scott-Arruda “Playing Thailand is more and more difficult”. http://www.fivb.org/EN/volleyball/competitions/WorldGrandPrix/2012/viewPressRelease.asp?No=35657&Language=en
