It was Australia who took the final spot in the Olympic Qualification a month ago. It triggered me to be interested to watch out for this powerhouse from the Asia Pacific.

However, the Aussies were outsmarted by the strong Argentinians in 3 straight sets (3-0), 25-21,25-22,25-20 in their opening match for preliminary round Pool A at Earls Court on Sunday.

Sebastian Sole, Facundo Conte and Pablo Crer finished with 13, 12 and 11 points respectively to spearhead the winning offense while Australia’s Thomas Edgar had a match-high 16 points and Igor Yudin added 13 to the count of the guys from “Down Under”.
