The national Iranian women’s volleyball team began the 20th Asian Women’s Volleyball Championships against the powerful host country South Korean team and suffered a 3-0 defeat.
The Iranian women then won their second match against Hong Kong to advance to the next stage, where they suffered another 3-0 defeat against Thailand.
For their fourth match, the Iranian squad took on Taiwan and lost 3-1 (25-22; 25-22;25-19;25-12) to lose the chance to secure a place at the top of the table.
The female volleyball team will have to wait for the winner of the Indonesia-Kazakhstan match on Sunday to have the chance to secure a fifth place in the Asian competitions. A loss in this round of competition would mean no a better place than the 7th or the 8th for the Iranian squad.
