Press release

I have a lot of respect for what the Dominicans showed today, says Turkey coach


Our advantage was our strong bench. I had many strong players to send in for the crucial moments of the match, said Turkey coach Edman Gökhan.

Brno, Czech Republic, June 29, 2013 – The Dominican Republic led 9-6 in the fifth set before a four-point run of the persistent Turks turned the tables in Turkey’s favour. Turkey eventually won 3-2 (26-24, 21-25, 25-19, 19-25, 15-13). We kept fighting until the end and showed, once more, our strong will, said Turkey captain Damla Cakiroglu.

Turkey coach Edman Gökhan: I have a lot of respect for what the Dominicans showed today. It was a tough battle until the end of the match. Our advantage was our strong bench. I had many strong players to send in for the crucial moments of the match. 

Turkey captain Damla Cakiroglu: Congratulation to both teams, it was a great game. We kept fighting until the end and showed, once more, our strong will.

Dominican Republic coach Roberto Rocha Wagner: I am so proud of my team. They gave their best. We are still young and can play again with the same team in two years. Then we will be even stronger.

Dominican Republic captain Marie Pamela Soriano: We are very saddened. We fought heroically and were that close to victory at the end. I am so sorry!
