Mr. LUI Lai Yee, the competition director of FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix – HK, had a brief introduction of the four participating team: ” The world ranking of China, Turkey, Argentina and Czech Republic are 5th, 7th, 18th and 26th. It is expected the match between China and Turkey will be a highlight because Turkey has defeated China and won the bronze medal in 2012′s WGP. In addition, Czech Republic also demonstrated their power in 2010 World Championship by beating the Italy 3:2 and lost only one set when they were defeated by Brazil 2:3. Argentina, a new but powerful team from South America, also help making the Hong Kong leg more exciting.”
