Zhu shines at Club World Cup
    2017-May-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

RIO 2016 Olympic gold medalist Zhu Ting was named Most Valuable Player of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship 2017 at the Green Kobe Arena, after she spearheaded VakifBank Istanbul to win the title in Kobe, Japan, on Sunday.

Zhu leads a stellar cast of outstanding performers in the five-day competition in Kobe. The Chinese star was also named Best Outside Spiker.

The 22-year old won the Best Outside Spiker award in Manila 2016, when VakifBank made a bronze medal finish.

European champion VakifBank Istanbul topped South American champion Rexona-SESC Rio 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-21) to claim its second title in the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship at Green Arena Kobe on Sunday.

Zhu topped all scorers with 19 points, then Kimberly Hill and Lonneke Slotjes recorded 12 and 11 points, respectively.

VakifBank’s consistent performance is certainly worthy of a gold medal, as the team completed the tournament with an unbeaten record.

The Turkish club once again reigned over the Rio de Janeiro-based club, after facing each other in 2013, when the Rio team played under the name Unilever Volei.

After last year’s bronze medal finish in Manila, its Olympic stars Zhu, Hill, Sloetjes and Milena Rasic worked very hard to help the club claim the top podium spot this year.

In the bronze medal match, Volero Zurich prevailed in their thrilling five-set clash with Eczacibasi Istanbul 3-2 (25-22, 25-15, 22-25, 23-25, 15-12). Olesia Rhkyliuk, Kenia Carcaces Opon, Foluke Akinradewo, Dobriana Rabadzhieva and Ekaterina Orlova delivered crucial points when it mattered most.

Volero Zurich gained the early two-set edge, but Tatiana Kosheleva helped Tijana Boskovic out on offense to force a tie-break set. (SD-Agencies)
