Almost forgot that matches today changed from start at 11 am to start at 9 am at my gym Hanom. Yesterday had 4 matches and all were reasonable volleyball. Canadian men got off to a bad start, losing 3-0 (and badly) to Iran. I think they were a ‘victim’ of jet lag as they only arrived a couple of days ago. Live and learn, I guess but maybe too late for them to respond in their pool.

There is a record number of athletes here at the event, about 13,000 participants from 149 countries have registered. Team Russia has 680 players and 250 coaches, Japan has 684 delegation members, followed by China with 610 and USA with 590. Team Iraq is here with 5 players and sport officials. North Korea decided not to participate at the last minute. 

Tonight is opening ceremonies and it is supposed to be a gala affair. For more pics on the affair go to:

That is it for now, off to the bus,
