Asian girls' teams battle for ticket to Youth Olympic Games

Beijing, China, March 31, 2010 – Thirteen teams will battle it out for a place in the Youth Olympic Games as well as the 2011 FIVB Girls’ Youth World Championship when the 8th Asian Girls’ Volleyball Championship gets under way in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from May 20 to 28.

The tournament will see just one team qualify for the first Youth Olympic Games, due to be held in Singapore from August 14 to 26, joining hosts Singapore as well as Egypt, Belgium, Peru and the NORCECA continental champions who is yet to be decided.

Additionally, ten Asian boys’ teams have registered to take part in the Asian Boys' Championship, also taking place in May in Iran.

The drawing of lots for the Asian Girls’ Volleyball Championship was conducted by Mr. Shanrit Wongprasert, chairman of the AVC Sports Events Council. The teams were divided into four pools for the preliminary round.

Pool A will see hosts Malaysia play Kazakhstan and Singapore whilst Pool B includes defending champions Japan, Australia and New Zealand. China, runners-up from 2008’s tournament, will take on Chinese Taipei and Iran in Pool C and Thailand face tough tests against Korea, Vietnam and India in Pool D.

Japan will be one of the favorites to clinch the Asian Youth Olympic Games ticket although arch rivals China will be desperate to dethrone the defending champions.
