Hurrah to the strongest team in World Grand Prix 2012, the number 1 team in the world, USA 🙂

It was the fourth winning moment of the Americans after they clashed with the Cubans late this afternoon in Ningbo, China. The team nailed the Cubans in three straight sets, 25-14,26-24,25-14 (3-0). Heather Bown built of her sturdy wall on the net against the powerful spikes from Cuba. It was so impressive that Bown showed her classic running spikes throughout the match.

The birthday celebrator, the lovely Kristin Richards scored 17 points, 13 attacks, 2 blocks and 2 serves.  Megan Hodge contributed 17 points too, 14 attacks and 3 blocks. 

In fairness with the Cuban team, Yoana Palacios bombed 11 points, 9 attacks and 2 serves. The Cubans almost got the second set with their unstoppable kills but no enough juice to down the Americans, 26-24. 

USA will play against China,who suffered a 3-1 defeat from the strong Turkish team (24-26,25-22,25-23.25-21). 

It would be the final game, final match… If USA will win tomorrow, gold medal will be awarded. It will be their 5th  title in FIVB WORLD GRAND PRIX, the highest women volleyball league. Good lick ladies ^_^ Go for gold !
