A step back for Argentina
While some teams still had Olympic qualification
tournaments to play in, world No. 8 Argentina
had the luxury of knowing they were already
qualified for the London Olympic Games, having
won a qualification tournament on home soil in
mid-May. “It is a different situation for us as we
have already qualified for London,” coach Javier
Weber said. “Nevertheless, the World League
is very important. We have a young squad and
our aim is to play better every day.” Well, maybe
they did, but they didn’t play better than last
year when they reached the semifinals for the
first time in the World League. They completed
the 2012 FIVB World League with a 6-6 record
in Pool D for 19 points, finishing third behind
Bulgaria and winners Germany. Like the other
three teams, they managed to beat Portugal
four times, although Portugal did manage to
pick up their only point off Argentina in their
final game. Argentina lost four straight to
Germany – 3-0 every time – but they certainly
gave Bulgaria a hard time, winning 3-0 in the
first match, 3-1 in the second match and losing
3-2
in the final two.
