ACH U19 W: Japan new champions of Asia

909 1

A little bit unexpected but Japan are the new champions of Asia after they won the final match of the19th Asian Women’s U19 Volleyball Championship in Vietnam.


In the big final, Japan defeated China in straight sets (25-20, 25-14, 25-20) and won their sixth gold medal, teh first after ten years. Interesting, this was the 11th time that Japan and China have met in the final of this competition and the result is now 7-4 for China.

Japan won matches in 1984, 1986, 1988 and 2018 while China were winners in 1994, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2006, 2014 and 2016. On the other side, China are still the most titles (12) in this competition. 

As we already mentioned after the semi-final matches, Japan and China also earned the last two spots for the World Championship 2019 in Italy.

Ayumi Yoshida and Haruna Yamashita similarly scored a match-high 15 points for Japan, while Che Wenhan was the lone Chinese to score a double-digit with 12 points.

In the match for the bronze medal Thailand outplayed Chinese Taipei with 3-1 (25-22, 26-24, 17-25, 25-23), Thanacha Sooksod was the lone Thai player who scored a double-digit after scoring 25 points including 20 attacks from 53 attempts, while Yeh Yu-Wen led Chinese Taipei with 17 points.

South Korea pulled off a sensational straight-set 25-17 25-16 25-23 victory over Vietnam to clinch the fifth place.

Kazakhstan defeated Iran in the match for the seventh place with 3-1 (25-15, 22-25, 25-23, 25-12).

Japan was the most well composed and disciple team in this u19 tournament. They didn't even lose a single set to any respective rivals on their way to gold.
