Team profile

Kazakhstan has a strong tradition of women’s volleyball, with many Kazakh players playing on USSR teams that won Olympic or world titles. After Kazakhstan gained independence, a newly formed national team began to represent the country in AVC and FIVB competitions. 

In 2005, Kazakhstan qualified for the 2006 World Championship and won the silver medal at the 13th Asian Women’s Championship. 

In 2007, the team appeared for the first time in the FIVB World Grand Prix and finished 10th, beating the Dominican Republic and going close to downing Russia in an epic five-set match. They were somewhat unlucky in the Asian Continental final, losing to Korea, and failed to qualify for the 2007 World Cup. 

However, the team took part in the 2008 World Grand Prix and claimed the fourth and final place at the Olympic Qualification Tournament in Japan in May 2008, securing an opportunity to compete in the Beijing Games with two last-gasp victories. 

In 2009, after successfully taking part in qualification tournaments, Kazakhstan won the right to participate in the 2010 World Championship but failed to reach the second round.
