On July 7th, the final of the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League took place in Nanjing, China, with the US team beating Brazil 2:1 to take home the championship.
Both countries are traditional heavyweights at volleyball, and this contest would guarantee a fantastic high quality volleyball show. The final went the full distance playing all 5 sets in 2.5 hours before the champions were decided. The US team only managed to win by a very narrow margin in the last set, with the final score being 15:13. Securing the win was not easy, but the result was more satisfying to the defending champions, leading to their second title win at the FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League.
The 2019 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League was separated into two stages with the first stage lasting from 5/21 to 6/20, and producing 5 nations (Italy, Turkey, the USA, Brazil and Poland) to contest the finals alongside the host country China. The second stage, which were the finals, lasted from 7/3 to 7/7.
China did not send their best lineup to play the tournament but ended up taking third place.
