Twelve women’s teams undefeated in Youth Olympics after two pool play rounds
Nanjing, China, August 18, 2014 - Twelve countries improved their women’s pool play records to 2-0 here Monday during the second of five days of group Beach Volleyball competition in the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games at the sport’s venue in the Nanjing Sports Park Complex.
Beach Volleyball newcomers from Chinese Taipei (Tzu-Yi Pan/Yu-Rong Song) and Saint Lucia (Skye Mondesir/Dala Noel) have made “surprising” break-throughs in Pool C and will be seeking their third-straight win in the Youth Olympics against teams from Uruguay and Turkey, respectively.
