the asian championship is being played in tehran.
semis between iran and korea.
as usual koreans prove their short fuse reputation and their
little libero guy walks under the net into iran side to pick a fight
and gets shoved off like a fly.both players got a red card.
action starts around minute 4:30.
iran won 3-1 and will play australia in the final.
russia has been suspended in all sports for 4 years.
that means their football team will miss wc2022 and
their volleyball team will miss the 2020 olympics.
iran was in the group with russia and placed second so
theoretically iran should get the berth now.
This morning and at last you could see that tiny smile on their faces, they were glad to have accomplished something great as athletes.
Man, you need to be an athlete yourself to understand the value of what they have achieved, this must be their life and the way their dreams come true.
Yesterday I saw the fight versus South Korean (a C or at the best case a B team in this context), it was devastating to see the face of TeamMeli's boys, there was no joy in their playing, it was almost very close that it cost'm the tickets to the Tokyo Olympics 2020, while SK players were jumping around for any single point they gained as it was they are close to their unassailable tickets to the moon.
I think it was in the morning (yesterday morning) right before the semifinal against S K the players heard the truth about the crash accident of the Flight 752 (own defense system).
My thoughts go to the families and relatives of the unfortunate passengers of the Ukraine Flight 752, very sad indeed.
Rest in Peace.
