Ankara, Turkey, August 22, 2013 – The team of China intend to keep winning, while the guys from Morocco are at the FIVB Volleyball Men's U21 World Championship in Ankara with gaining experience and improving their game in mind.  China shut out Morocco by 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-21) in the first Pool A match in the Turkish capital and these are the first words of the coaches and the captains after the end of the game.

Tianyi Mao, captain of China: “Morocco is a good team, but we were better than them today. We want to win all of our matches. We have strong teams in our pool. We want to do our best everyday in this Championship.”
