Azerbaijan take men’s Volleyball silver at Islamic Solidarity Games
Miscellaneous

Baku, Azerbaijan, May 22, 2017. The 2017 edition of the Islamic Solidarity Games ended on Sunday in Baku – and the programme of the final day included, inter alia, the medal matches in the men’s Volleyball competition. After sweeping all of their games in the pool phase, hosts Azerbaijan eventually settled for the silver medal, a truly historic result – especially since they lost the ‘grand finale’ to a men’s Volleyball powerhouse such as Iran. This accounts for the first ever medal won by Azerbaijan in any international men’s Volleyball competition.

Iran rallied to a 3-0 victory (25-16, 29-27, 25-18) in the matchup with Azerbaijan at the iconic Crystal Hall – the same venue which hosted Volleyball competition during the highly successful Baku 2015 European Games. Iran team captain Rasoul Aghchehli top scored in the match with 22 points, as two players from Azerbaijan finished the game in double digits as well – Rasul Ibragimov and Bartlomiej Lipinski with 11 apiece.

Earlier in the day, Algeria claimed the bronze medal match edging Turkey 3-1 (20-25, 25-22, 25-18, 25-22).

As for Azerbaijan, their men’s national team will now travel to France to contest this week a qualification tournament to next year’s World Championship before competing in the 2017 edition of the CEV Volleyball European League – thus making their second appearance in the competition as men’s Volleyball keeps on growing and developing in the Land of Fire.
