Chinanews Client, December 19 (Reporter Xing Rui) The 2020 Women's Volleyball Super League ended in silence.
After three rounds of battle, Tianjin Women's Volleyball Team won the championship trophy with a big score of 2:1.
Different from previous years, the Tianjin team on the podium did not enjoy the applause and cheers from the audience.
Due to the need for epidemic prevention and control, the league was held empty this season, and the schedule was compressed to just over 40 days.
Although the league has shrunk significantly, it does not affect the excitement of the game.
Judging from the "white-hot" competition in the final stage of the league, we may be able to glimpse the state of the national players preparing for the Tokyo Olympics.
In this special year, the Chinese women's volleyball team conducted 7 months of training.
Since then, the National Women's Volleyball Championship started, but some national players did not appear in this competition.
Until the start of the league, fans did not see familiar faces.
Affected by the epidemic, the number of foreign players in this year's league has dropped significantly, which has increased the number of teams playing in the all-Chinese class, and also made the final stage of the "Zimbabwe War" more interesting.

The Tianjin women's volleyball team represented by Zhu Ting and Li Yingying and the other two national players Zhang Changning and the Jiangsu women's volleyball team led by Gong Xiangyu were separated from each other. The Tianjin women's volleyball team finally reversed and won after losing a game first.
Although the Jiangsu women's volleyball team finished runner-up, their indomitable spirit was praised by the fans.
In fact, the Jiangsu women's volleyball team has the ability to relive the championship dream three years ago. The team's secondary attack, setter and free agent's strength should not be underestimated.
But an accident in the second round completely changed the title of the finals.
At that time, Diao Linyu, the main setter of the Jiangsu team, stepped on Li Yingying's foot when he landed after a block, and was then helped off the field.
The Jiangsu women's volleyball team lost the second game with a lead.
Even if Diao Linyu insisted on returning to the court in the third game, her injured ankle still affected her performance, and soon she was replaced by the coach to rest.
The Jiangsu women's volleyball team hugged and wept.
After regretting losing the gold medal within reach, the girls of the Jiangsu team hugged and wept. Diao Linyu also limped on the sidelines and clapped with the teammates who ended the game.
Although the medals were changed to a different color, the women's volleyball spirit was shining with the women's volleyball team, "I know I won't win, but I must go all out."
After the match, Zhang Changning, the leader of the Jiangsu women's volleyball team and one of the main members of the Chinese women's volleyball team, also wrote to encourage her teammates at the first time. She wrote: "In my heart, the Jiangsu women's volleyball team is the champion. Sisters, you are the best."

Aside from the touches of the fans in the finals, the competitive state of many national players also brought surprises to the fans.
The offensive firepower of Zhu Ting and Li Yingying still made their opponents frightened; Zhang Changning gave full play to the role of the core figure in this league. As a comprehensive main attack, she became one of the heroes of Jiangsu women's volleyball team entering the final.
Although Gong Xiangyu responded, but in the case of Diao Linyu's injury, she played as a setter in the last game and grabbed a round from the Tianjin Women's Volleyball Team.
In addition, although the Liaoning women's volleyball team finished the league tour in sixth place, the coordination of the national team's main setter Ding Xia and main deputy attacker Yan Ni is still tacit.
Their presence has added a lot to the Liaoning women's volleyball team and is an indispensable part of the Chinese women's volleyball team.

The steady performance of the national players also reflects the results of this year's training camp, which undoubtedly gives fans more confidence in the Tokyo Olympics next year.
With the stable output of the "veterans", a group of teenagers such as Ni Feifei and Chen Boya also performed well in the competition.
The Chinese women's volleyball team will start a new round of training in January next year, and fans may be able to see new faces in the training team.
It is said that "friendship first, competition second", the Chinese women's volleyball team has always been a harmonious family.
Although they are rivals in the league, this does not affect their friendship.

After Diao Linyu was injured, Zhu Ting and Li Yingying paid a visit, and the latter also fed Diao Linyu chocolate.
After Gong Xiangyu's guest setter, Ding Xia, who played for Lego at "Freedom", started the online Tucao mode...All these made fans feel the warmth and joy of the Chinese women's volleyball team.
With the end of the Women's Volleyball Super League, all the 2020 Chinese women's volleyball matches will come to an end.
In this special year, the organization of the league also has a more special significance.
It provides a competitive arena for the national players, and reserve talents are constantly produced and grown from the league.
Soon in Tokyo, we may be able to see a familiar but unfamiliar team galloping on the field.
