2017 Women’s U20 African Nations Volleyball Championship – Egypt Win Women’s U20 World Championship’s ticket
Egypt have claimed the 2017 Women’s U20 World Championship’s ticket after they overcame Tunisia 3-1 (25-22, 25-6, 23-25, 25-9) in their second decisive game at 2017 Women’s U20 African Nations Championship at the Olympic Centre in Cairo, Egypt on Sunday.
Egypt had already won the first match in straight sets (25-7, 25-20, 25-10) on Saturday.
The CAVB President Dr Amr Elwani honoured the winners with the cup and the gold medals, and Tunisia with the silver medals.
Egypt easily won the first and second sets, but the Tunisian team fought aggressively in the third set using their solid blocks and the disturbance in the Egyptian defence to narrow the score to 1-2. Eventually the Egyptian team used the quick attacks through Mariam Metwally in the fourth set to win the match and capture the gold medals.
