Overview

Team profile

China

China have competed twice in the Olympic Games, their latest outing as hosts in Beijing 2008 where they ranked 5th. They have consistently represented Asia in the FIVB World Championship - their best results being 7th place in both 1978 and 1982. They ranked 15th in the last edition in Poland in 2014. At continental level China have won three gold medals at the Asian Games (1986, 1990 and 1998) and have been crowned Asian champions in 1979, 1997 and 1999.
China have been competing in the FIVB World League on and off ever since the inaugural edition of 1990 - though they've still some way to go to match their women's National Team achievements internationally.
China's best World League finish was back in 1996, when they made the Final Six in Rotterdam but dropped all their matches there to rank 6th overall. More recently, China finished second to last in the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League with a 3-12 record for 15th place. They later ranked 22nd amongst the 24 entrants of the 2018 FIVB World Championship.
