The Slovenian women’s volleyball team started the qualification tournament for the Olympic Games in Lodz with an expected defeat. In the first match, the Slovenian women beat the hosts, the Polish women, 3:0 (18, 15, 22).
The Slovenian women were in a subordinate position for the entire match against their opponents, whom they had reliably defeated already at this year’s European Championship, and they did not even once threaten the victory of the favorites.
The next match will be the chosen ones of the Italian strategist Marc Bonitta already played on Sunday, when they will face strong Italy.
The two best national teams from the group will qualify for the Olympic Games, Slovenian women have no real chance of that. In addition to them, the hosts and the Italian women, there are also German, Colombian, American, Thai and the South Korean team in the group.
