The Turks took advantage of their size to create a lot of problems to their smaller rivals, who never were a major threat.

Turkey took an 8-6 command in the first set with 4 points from Ozbek and 3 by Hanikoglu, and increased to 13-8 with Ozlem Ozcelik and Demir scoring two spikes apiece. Hanikoglu and Demir provided most of the offense the rest of the way. In the second set, Demir and Osbek gave Turkey an 8-3 lead and Demir finished the set with 7 attacks and one ace. In the third, Turkey went to the court more relaxed and allowed some points to Argentina before sealing the victory with a smash from Demir and ace by Seda Tokatlioglu.
