Short characterization

 

BULGARIA

 

STARTING PLAYERS / SUBSTITUTES

 

Mood swings on the court led them both up and down during match performances. Bulgaria ranked first in the serve receive skills (41.09% perfect) for all 16 teams but were mid pack in most other skills. Powers, Dobriana Rabadzhieva (5th) and Elitsa Vasileva (9th), led this team with 131 points and 120 points, respectively. They probably had close to the tallest team with a 1.85 height average. Future seems to be bright in the attack and block elements but errors may have not allowed them to fulfill their dream of a medal. Defensively, they were not in the category of the top 3 teams.
