Team profile

China come into the 2010 FIVB World Championships with what could be described as a mixed bag of results in recent years. At the last FIVB World Championships in 2006, and after being the model of consistency from 1994 to 2002, they dropped to 17th-placed finish.
 
However despite a poor display in the 2010 IVB World League where they finished with a 14th, they are showing positive signs of a turnaround.

In the FIVB World Cup, they twice finished fifth in 1977 and 1981 and after an 18-year gap came back to place 11th in 1999 and then 10th in 2003.

China has fared better in the Asian Games. They won the competition in 1990, placed second in '94, won in '98, finished third in 2002 and second in '06.

In the Asian Championship, they placed third in '91, fourth in '93 and second in '95, before winning the title in '97 and retaining it in '99. They then finished third in 2001, second in '03, second in '05 and fourth in '07.

Coach profile

Zhou Jianan, 46, previously a setter for the China Men's team from 1987-1999, has been a coach since 1999. He started at Sichuan before becoming China coach in 2006. He selected a younger side for the Beijing 2008 Olympics where they finished fifth in Beijing.

Zhou is still in charge until the next Olympic cycle, and he has vowed to accept the new challenge and continue to push his team forward.
