Rabita Baku 3, VakifBank TTelekom Istanbul 0 (Women’s Gold Medal)
Rabita Baku won the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship gold medal by defeating VakifBank TTelekom Istanbul 25-15, 25-18, 25-9 Friday evening in Doha, Qatar.

Natasa Osmokrovic sparked Rabita Baku early and finished with 16 points. Natalya Mammadova ended the match with 12 points in the winning effort. Bahar Toksoy and Malgorzata Glinka led VakifBank TTelekom with 10 points each.

While VakifBank TTelekom held a slim 3-2 in aces, Rabita Baku benefited from 24 opponent errors and held their own errors to four. Rabita Baku were playing their fourth match in four days. VakifBank TTelekom, which defeated Rabita Baku in the final round of the 2011 CEV Champions League, had not lost in set in the tournament entering the gold-medal match.

All seven gold-medal matches have been decided in three sets. In addition, the 2011 championship is the first year a Brazilian club did not reach the gold-medal match.

“We're very happy that we have won this prestigious championship,” Rabita Baku captain Natalya Mammadova said. “We prepared ourselves very well for this match. Tactically we played very good, we served very well and were stronger in defense and reception.”

“First of all I would like to congratulate Rabita Baku,” VakifBank TTelekom Istanbul coach Giovanni Guidetti said. “I cannot be angry with my players. We were only abe to train together once before the start of this competition. We weren't prepared. We weren't ready yet. The first matches we played against some weaker teams, which were very easy for us. Today we played against a very organised team, which was just too difficult for us.”
