Kenya face daunting task at Volleyball World Cup

26 June 2015, 18:20

Nairobi - The national Kenyan Volleyball team will face a tough task at the 2015 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Cup, set to be held between August 22 and September 6 in Japan.

They have been drawn in tough group that includes Japan, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Cuba and Russia.

Former Kenya head coach Paul Bitok has played down the fact that they are in the group of death as he feels that Kenya have the advantage as there are some teams that have not competed in while.

"It might have been considered a group of death, but as far as I am concerned that’s a favourable pool," Bitok told standardmedia.co.ke

"Apart from Russia and Japan, the rest of the teams are making a comeback after many years in the cold."

He then proceeds to explain that they can overcome the group if they can get past the South American teams as Japan and Russia will probably give them the most trouble.

"We have been at the same level with Cuba, Dominican Republic and Argentina," said the former Kenya head coach. 

"We will have problems with Japan and Russia but with our Grand Prix experience (2014 and 2015) we have what it takes to qualify to the second round."
