“We are the champion, we are the champion”, sang the Russians after their gold medal match against the Germans in 4 sets, (3-1), 25-23, 23-25 ,25-23, 25-14.
I saw their great determination to bag the precious gold in the tournament this year. After a very three tight consecutive sets of the game, the Russians maintained their powerful plays inside the court. But the Germans tried to stop the Russians in their quest for gold. Margareta Kozuch was unstoppable in the 2nd set of the match.
The flow of the story has changed in the 4th set when unforced errors glued the Germans and didn’t able to make their run. This has made the Russians enjoy to finish the game in 25-14. It was still a good fight from the Germans being the host of the league.
