Two of the best Asian teams clashed for the bronze medal match at Earls Court before the 2012 London Olympics was over.
Yes, guys… JAPAN and SOUTH KOREA were really competitive to bag the bronze medal from London.
These two teams are really quick inside the court. I was expecting that it was really a tight match. Either one of them would reach 25 points first.
In other words, Saori Kimura from Japan and Kim Yeon-Koung from South Korea used their powerful kills against the middle blockers of each team.
However, the Koreans didn’t have enough juice to outwit the Japanese. Japan showed nicer digs than Korea. Thank you for Yuko Sano. You rock girl!
Kim Yeon-Koung was in a perfect shape to spike that volleyball but massive blocks above the net were the powerful weapons the Japanese could ever used.
Congratulations for team Japan! 🙂 The Japanese outsmarted the Koreans in 3 straight sets (3-0), 25-22,26-24,25-21.
Till the next Olympics! CONGRATULATIONS ^^
