 Ukraine Team
 
Since the 2001 Womenís U20 World Championship, where Ukraine failed to qualify
for the finals, the Ukrainian Womenís U20 team has been improving and look to
be peaking at just the right time for the 2003 edition of the World
Championship in Thailand.

Following a 13th place finish at the 1997 Junior World Championship, it has
been a long time between drinks for the Ukrainian Womenís U20 team, who missed
out on qualifying for the final round of the 1999 and 2001 World Championships.

Despite relatively encouraging lead up form, when it came to the big games
Ukraine were outclassed.

But more recently they have turned things around and following a silver medal
performance at the 2002 Junior European Championship the Ukraine qualified for
the World Championship after winning their qualification tournament.

Bright signs for a country which isnít synonymous with Volleyball but one
hopes this is the start of something good.
