Japan to medal after 32 year wait?

Posted by devo on November 22, 2009

Hosts Japan put themselves within a whisper of a podium finish in an FIVB event for the first time since the 1977 World Cup after claiming their third victory from as many matches on day three of action at the FIVB Men’s World Grand Champions Cup 2009 in the Nippongaishi Hall on Saturday. Japan beat Iran in an outstanding evening match 3-2 (27-25, 18-25, 25-23, 20-25, 16-14) while defending champions Brazil also remain unbeaten after beating Poland 3-0 (25-17, 25-17, 25-18) and Cuba overcame Egypt in a five set thriller 3-2 (25-17, 23-25, 25-14, 23-25, 15-7). more@fivb
