Vietnam continued their remarkable run at the 2023 Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship in Thailand following their second win against Uzbekistan in Group C on Thursday.

Despite resting their best players, Vietnam demolished the unfancied rivals in a one-sided battle, winning each set 25-11, 25-12, 25-9 over a combined 65 minutes.

Right from the outset, the team asserted their dominance by showcasing its potent attacking capability.

While there were moments when Uzbekistan attempted to catch up, the Vietnamese players’ higher level enabled them to preserve their lead.

Middle blocker Tran Thi Bich Thuy delivered 14 points and 12 attacks from 18 attempts for Vietnam, while skipper Jamolova Nozimakhon led Uzbekistan with seven points.

Securing the 3-0 win guaranteed Vietnam a place in the second qualifying round of the championship, despite one more match remaining in Group C.

They also stayed atop Group C with five points from their two consecutive wins.

They staged an epic comeback to secure a surprising 3-2 victory against South Korea in their opening match on Wednesday.

The 2023 Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship takes place in Nakhon Ratchasima Province, Thailand through September 6. Fourteen participating teams are competing in four groups.

The tournament’s top three teams will earn a spot in the 2025 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship.

In the event’s 20 previous editions, China has claimed the highest number of titles, totaling 13, while Japan has won five and Thailand has clinched two. 

The 2021 edition was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Vietnam’s most notable achievement was a fifth place in both 2015 and 2017.

Their next match against Taiwan is set for Friday at 12:00 pm.
