Floods and power blackouts caused by a tropical storm forced organizers to postpone the opening matches of the 15th Asian Senior Men’s Volleyball Championship, scheduled to be held in Manila today (Sept. 26).

Harry Anping, chairman of the Philippine Sports Commission, told Xinhua that the two stadiums in downtown Manila, where the matches were scheduled to be held, were flooded and organizers are yet to decide on the reschedule dates. more ~ A report on the storm

    Interesting that almost 2/3rds of respondents think the guys will make top 4!

      The must be expecting VTAM to come top of pool D. Pretty difficult road if they don’t. With previous results carried through they would have to defeat Japan or come up against one of the top two from the other second pool to win through to the medals.
