Hi Everyone:

Big win by Canada Men last night - 3-1 over Italy. It puts Canada in 2nd place in their pool, ahead of BRA, USA and FRA. They will play Russia who ended up in a 3 way tie for first place in Pool B but got ranked in 3rd with the tie breaking system. 

Tie Breaking Procedure:
Ranking System

In order to establish the ranking of teams, the following criteria shall be implemented.
1. Number of victories 

The teams will be classified in descending order by the number of matches won.

2. Ranking Points

In case of equality in number of matches won the ranking points will be considered.   
Results Winners Losers
3-0 3 pts 0 pts
3-1 3 pts 0 pts
3-2 2 pts 1 pts

3. Set ratio 

In the case of equality in the number of matches won by two or several teams, they will be classified in descending order by the quotient resulting from the division of the number of all sets won by the number of all sets lost.

4. Points ratio

If the tie persists as per the set ratio, the teams will be classified in descending order by the result of dividing all points scored by the total of points lost during all sets 

5. Still tied? 

If the tie continues as per the point ratio between two teams, the priority will be given to the team which won the last match between them. When the tie in points ratio is between three or more teams, a new classification of these teams in the terms of points 1, 2 and 3 will be made taking into consideration only the matches in which they were opposed to each other.
