A belated victory is also a victory.

  The Chinese women's volleyball team won the Italian women's volleyball team 3:0. Before the game, most people should not have thought of this result.

  In the fourth Tokyo Olympics group match of the Chinese women's volleyball team, they finally ushered in their first victory.

However, this victory came a bit too late. Prior to this, the Chinese women's volleyball team had already determined in advance that they missed the qualifying group.

  In the game, the women's volleyball girls still treated every ball seriously as before.

Once, Yuan Xinyue made a high-decibel roar almost hoarse after scoring a spike.

This is the face of the Chinese women's volleyball team that fans want to see.

  What a turbulent day, because the women's volleyball team was destined to be eliminated and was traumatized, but they saw hope because of a game.

With such complex emotions, someone is destined to have trouble sleeping tonight.

  I still remember that ten days ago, Lang Ping led the team out of Japan's Narita Airport. She confidently said to the camera: "We are ready." At that time, the fans were also expecting the women's volleyball girl to raise the national flag and play the national anthem in Japan. .

But after the start of the game, one after another defeat, the hope of defending gradually shattered.

On July 29th, in the Tokyo Olympic Games women's volleyball group match, the Chinese team lost 2 to 3 against the Russian athletes.

  After two consecutive 0:3 losses to Turkey and the United States, we also expect the "Rio miracle" to be staged again.

However, "Goddess of Luck" did not care about the Chinese women's volleyball team again after all.

The Chinese women's volleyball team has already reached the edge of the cliff when the Russian Olympic team was defeated in the third game.

  With Turkey's victory over Argentina on the afternoon of the 31st, Beijing time, the Chinese women's volleyball team decided to stop the group stage.

After playing Italy and Argentina, the women's volleyball team can go home.

  What makes the fans unacceptable is not that the previous victory is hard to find, but that the Chinese women's volleyball team has not played the level and state that it should be.

On July 29, the Tokyo Olympic Games women's volleyball group match continued. The Chinese team lost to the Russian Olympic team 2:3 and lost three straight in the group match.

As the champion of the last Olympic Games, the Chinese women's volleyball team may not be able to qualify for the embarrassing situation.

The picture shows the women's volleyball coach Lang Ping directing from the sidelines.

  Lost to Turkey in the first match, even Lang Ping bluntly said: "I am surprised." Recalling the impressive record of the Chinese women's volleyball team from 2016 to 2021: 2016 Olympic champion, 2018 World Championship third place, 2019 World Cup champion... once ranked No. in the world. The first team to break the group stage in such a way is unexpected.

  But for the Chinese women's volleyball team, the Tokyo Olympics is different from other world competitions.

After five years of waiting for the team to enter the finals, who is not eager to pull the defending champion down?

  Obviously, the Chinese women's volleyball team has not made enough preparations for the tough rivals that are coming.

Today, it is an indisputable fact that the group is out.

  Fortunately, in the match against Italy, the state of the women's volleyball girls has bottomed out.

I hope they can continue to play the team spirit in the last game against Argentina.

On July 29, the Tokyo Olympic Games women's volleyball group match continued. The Chinese team lost to the Russian Olympic team 2:3 and lost three straight in the group match.

  It was regretful to end the trip to Tokyo in this way, and many fans found it difficult to settle.

But the cruelty of competitive sports is that no team can always be at the top.

  When Lang Ping took over the women's volleyball team in 2013, the team was in a state of unacceptable.

After several years of hard work and hard work, the Chinese women's volleyball team was able to return to the top of the world.

  Entering the Tokyo Olympic cycle, the pattern of world volleyball has changed again.

Thanks to the continuous emergence of new stars, the strength of the Italian, Serbian, Turkish women's volleyball team and other teams has greatly increased.

The Chinese women's volleyball team is still dominated by the main lineup of the Rio Olympics.

  The postponement of the Tokyo Olympics has put more pressure on the team.

Yan Ni's shoulder injury, Zhu Ting's wrist, weak candidates in some positions, lack of reserve force... These problems are like "time bombs" that always plague the women's volleyball team.

In the end, various factors led to Tokyo's defeat.

On July 27, local time, the Chinese women's volleyball team, which lost the first match, ushered in the second group stage of the Tokyo Olympics.

Captain Zhu Ting played with an injury and scored a team-high 18 points, but the Chinese team still lost 0:3 to the US women's volleyball team and suffered a two-game losing streak in the Tokyo Olympic group stage.

  Back in 1981, the first world championship of Chinese women's volleyball team was won in Japan.

On this night, it was also a victory, but the scenes in the memory seemed like a world away.

  After the Olympics, 61-year-old Lang Ping will be disarmed and returned to the field. As early as last year, she said that she would retire after the Tokyo Olympics.

A group of old players like Yan Ni, Liu Xiaotong, Ding Xia will leave the team with a high probability.

The "Lang Ting's Prosperity" in the fans' mouths may also come to an end.

  The trough, the peak, and then the trough, this is the law of competitive sports, and it is also a cruel fact that every team cannot avoid.

  However, we are still very grateful to the Chinese women's volleyball team for the touch of fans.

This kind of moving is not to win the championship, but to do everything you can if you know you won't win.

  This time, I hope that the Chinese women's volleyball team that encountered "Waterloo" in Tokyo will not sink for too long and get up from wherever they fall.

For the Paris Olympics, look forward to the women's volleyball team making a comeback.
