MANILA, PHILIPPINES, August 11, 2017 – Maldives women’s national volleyball coach Mohamed Nadheem stays positive despite losing against Iran and closed the doors to get their first ever trophy in the ongoing Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship on Friday at the Muntinlupa Sports Center here.
Mohamed explained that in this tournament, they gained experience and knowledge for them to develop for the coming games.
“This is a very important game for Maldives because we are not like up to the standards of other teams, and we are still developing our team,” said Nadeem.
He also saw a good point in his girls that developed against competing other Asian teams.
“Fighting spirit. We showed it since our girls are short and our jumps were not that high and powerful,” he added.
In their last game, Maldives fell short against Iran in three straight sets, 25-4, 25-13 and 25-14 to shut their dream on at least playing in the quarter-finals.
Maldives will next see in action in the South Asian Games, after competing for official placing in the AVC.
