Quoting armegon



Yeah ! Because of the absurd play off system of Turkish Volleyball federation, now that federation is looking for teams to play in Turkish cup, they planned and excellent schedule this year


Well, there must be a reason for it. You now we have a tournament ahead for Olympics qualification and it´s a tight schedule. If they were to make it "first to win 3 games would win" then they need to plan for 5 games (worst case 3-2 rather than 3-0 ).

Turkey’s national women’s volleyball team will try to maintain its form when it rolls into the semifinals of the European qualification for the 2012 Summer Olympics. 

Turkey has won all three of its games to lead Pool A, and will meet the runner-up of Pool B, which will be decided after the Netherlands plays Russia. The game was still in progress as the Hürriyet Daily News went to print on May 4. 

Poland will meet Germany as the winner of Pool B, unless Russia beats the Netherlands in three sets. The winners of both semifinals will meet in the final on May 6. The qualifying tournament matches are being played in Ankara, the Turkish capital. 

Turkey has not been represented at the Olympics in team sports since the 1960 Rome Olympics. Prior to that date, the country was represented six times in football and twice in basketball team. No Turkish volleyball team has played in the Olympics before.



Note :  Hopefully this time we will play in the Olimpics in team sports.

This wikipedia page has all the scores and other details and it was up-to-date a few minutes after we beat Poland at the final match. Amazing speed!

Quoting gezegen



Granted, but let´s not forget the factor and effect of Anka, Celina, Ewa and Irenka (my favourite)! I have a strong feeling that women volleyball in Poland has still a brillant future and is pregnant to many, many successes if the mentioned girls assist each other, don´t lose eye contacts and remain beautiful.


My two cents! {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}


Girls can hardly assist each other, when it comes to pregnancy.    {#emotions_dlg.alcoholics}

Magic Turkish squad claims third consecutive gold medal
2012 CEV Junior Volleyball European Championship – Women

Ankara, Turkey, August 26, 2012. In front of 6’500 electrified spectators at Baskent Hall in Ankara, Turkey outclassed Serbia in straight sets (25-21, 25-22, 25-18) to win their third consecutive gold medal within two years in CEV and FIVB youth and junior competitions.






Only one year after their magical coups at 2011 CEV Youth Volleyball European Championship – Girls as well as at 2011 FIVB Volleyball Girls´ Youth World Championship, Turkish captain and Most Valuable Player Damla Cakiroglu led her team to an undisputed straight-set win versus 2010 runner-up Serbia (25-21, 25-22, 25-18) in today’s gold medal clash in Ankara. Best scorer of the match was Serbia’s captain Bianka Busa with 15 kills, whilst Kübra Akman scored twelve times for Turkey. The home squad booked ten aces, Serbia had only four.
In front of their famous home crowd, the promising Turkish talents started confidently, taking a merited 8-5 lead at the first technical break. Both teams showed some fantastic combinations at the net and outstanding defense actions. The main difference between the two adversaries at the start of today’s gold medal match was their serve. Turkey put a lot of pressure on the Serbian passers, but couldn’t stop Serbia bouncing back at 12-12 with a blistering Natasa Cikiriz winner from back row. However, Turkey kept cool to regain momentum at the second technical time-out (16-13). Serbia’s head coach Ratko Pavlicevic asked for a break at 13-17 to reorganize their game plan. At 21-23, 2010 runner-up Serbia had reduced the gap to two points, but it was already too late. Ceylan Arisan brought up set point with a quick combination on the right side, before Turkish setter Cagla Akin blocked Nikolina Lukic to give the host a hard-earned 1:0 set lead.
However, Serbia came back strongly. At the first technical time-out in set No. 2, the East Europeans already led 8-3. Captain Bianka Busa added some impressive winners to her scorers chart and the two Serbian middle-blockers Mina Popovic and Jelena Trnic were insurmountable at the net. At the second technical break, Serbia was still five points ahead. Turkey tried to take advantage of the imprecise passing of Serbian libero Nadica Dragutinovic, but her Serbian teammates helped her with some remarkable offensive actions. Nevertheless, Turkey came closer with six consecutive points to turn the tables at 19-17. It was the turning point of the second set. Turkey never looked back with Kübra Akman closing it out for the home squat at 25-22.
The story of the game didn’t change in the third set. Turkey jumped out for an 8-5 lead at the first technical stop. Serbia still struggled with passing, forcing setter Sladjana Mirkovic to slow down her game. As a consequence, the Turkish defense players showed some brilliant back court play. At the second technical time-out, the scoreboard already displayed a seven-point gap in Turkey’s favor. The team of head coach Gökhan Edman continued their run. Cakiroglu smashed for 21-13, before some rallies later Akman blocked for a 23-16 Turkish lead. Aktas brought up match point with an impressive winner on the right side, before a Serbian net touch bounced the Turkish ladies in heaven (25-18).        

Turkish head coach Gökhan Edman: "My players made a fantastic job today. They followed our game plan from A to Z. I would like to congratulate my staff members and the Turkish Volleyball Federation for the great efforts they made."
Turkish captain Damla Cakiroglu: "We were ready for today´s game. We prepared very well. I guess, we played a great tournament and deserve the gold medal."
Serbia head coach Ratko Pavlicevic: "Congratulations to the Turkish team; they were the better team today. Thank you for hosting us, it was an great organization."
Serbia captain Bianka Busa: "I don´t know what to say. Congratulations to Turkey, they played better than we did today."

Turkey qualify for semis, Bulgaria relegated to classification matches


As the coaches predicted before the beginning of the tournament everything was still open in Pool II before the last day. Bulgaria, Spain and Turkey were all in position to book a ticket for the semi-finals in Poland, so one team had to be the joker and not make it. In the first match of the day Pool leaders Spain faced Bulgaria that was ranked second with one round still to go. Spain cemented their first place in the group by downing Bulgaria in straight sets (25-16, 25-23, and 25-2 to qualify for the semis as the first-ranked team of Pool II. Afterwards, Turkey cruised to a 3-1 win over Greece to be finally ranked second in the group, and this result - combined with the 3-1 win of Germany against Denmark - sends Greece home and sees Germany make it to the next phase to play the classification matches 5-8 together with Bulgaria, plus the third and fourth ranked teams of Pool I that will come to a close on Thursday. 


Much was at stake in combination with the penultimate match of the prelims in Randers. As Bulgaria had lost in straight sets to Spain, Turkey could go past the Bulgarian team in the charts and claim the last spot for the semis with a 3:0 or 3:1 win against Greece. With this motivation in their minds Turkey was unstoppable and won the match 3:1 (25-20, 25-18, 18-25, 25-22).
The teams were all even in the beginning of the first set. Turkey led 8:7 at the first technical time-out. From here the Turkish team increased their lead to 16:9 by the second. The Turks seemed much focused with good reception, strong attacks and solid blocks. Throughout the set they delivered a great performance and won it 25-20.
It was like Turkey was playing at home ground with a lot of Turkish supporters on the tribune in Skyline Arena giving great support to their team. The waterproof blocks from the tough Turks continued in the second set and gave them an 8:5 lead by the first technical time-out and 16:12 by the second. Turkey’s opposite Metin Toy put the Greek’s finger strength to the test many times during the set and the match making 11 points. Turkey won the second set 25-18.
Greece was much stronger in the third set leading 8:6 at the first technical time-out and 16:13 by the second. Behind 14:18 Turkey’s head coach Ali Kazim Hidayetoglu called a time-out trying to turn the set over in Turkey’s favor. It did not work as planned and behind 14:20 Ali Kazim Hidayetoglu called another break. No way back in this set for Turkey, Greece won it 25-18.
The intensity rose in the fourth set. Turkey took the lead 8:4 by the first technical time-out with some strong attacks. The Turkish constellation of two or more of their two meter guys Toy, Sahin, Günes, Gökgöz and Senol in the block made Greece have a hard time finding a way through and Turkey led 16:11 by the second technical time-out. Though the set got close (24:22) Turkey kept cool and won the fourth set 25-22 and the match 3-1.
With three points Turkey goes past Bulgaria in the table and claims the second and last spot for the semifinals 1-4.
