Universiade: Overall recap & results Day 8

Head coach Peyvand Mossavat took the blame for Friday’s loss. “We are obviously disappointed, however we have to be honest, they were a better team than us today,” said Mossavat. “We changed some things that just didn’t work for us. The coaches are going to take that loss. We should have done a better job trying to prepare the kids. The girls have done an amazing job, they have worked so hard and I’m so proud of them.”

Canada’s journey is not complete however, since it will still fight for a medal against Japan (3-1-1). The bronze medal clash will take place Sunday at 4 p.m. (3 a.m. ET) and will be webcast live and for free on www.livefisu.tv.

As they have all tournament long, the Canadian women’s volleyball team had to wage a fierce battle against China in the fifth place match at the Summer Universiade on Friday. This time it was the Chinese who outlasted Canada by 3-2 (27-25, 24-26, 18-25, 25-23, 15-11).

Hitters Danielle Brisebois (UBC) and Marie-Alex Bélanger (University of Montreal) each scored 25 points. Brisebois landed 21 kills and four blocks, while Belanger counted 24 kills and one block.

The Canadians finish the tournament in sixth place, the same result achieved by Canada at the 2013 Universiade in Kazan, Russia.

Friday was a busy evening at Gwangju’s World Cup Stadium for the athletics team. Six Canadian athletes competed in final races and three more athletes are in position to compete in tomorrow’s finals. Rachel Aubry of Ottawa, Ont., had the top finish of the evening, placing fifth in the women’s 800-metres. She passed two athletes in the final 300 metres after crossing the finish line the first time in seventh position.

The athletics competition continues tomorrow and will close on Sunday, July 12.

The Canadian men’s volleyball team fell 3-1 (23-25, 25-23, 22-25, 19-25) to Australia in their consolation game on Friday. After having a few days off to rest, the Canadians came out strong against Australia. They fought the Aussies to the bitter end and threw them off of their game but were unable to come away with the win.

Brandon Koppers (McMaster University) finished the game with 14 points and 11 kills, while Blake Scheerhoorn (Trinity Western University) registered 11 points on as many kills. Canada will now face China for the 19th place in their final game at the Universiade Saturday at 1:00 p.m. (12:00 a.m. ET).

On the final day in the pool, the Canadian swim team saw action in two event finals. Jacomie Strydom (University of British Columbia) finished seventh overall in the women’s 200m butterfly with a time of 2:13.24, while the relay team of Kylie Masse, Marie-Pier Couillard, Sam Corea and Caroline Lapierre-Lemire also placed seventh in the 4x100m medley with a time of 4:08.83.
Although the indoor swimming team only brought home one medal, head coach Lance Cansdale is very pleased with his team at the Universiade.

“As a team I saw a few things that were really good going forward. The biggest thing is the experience these younger athletes are getting. Getting the experience of a multi-games situation and the opportunity to swim a prelim, a semi-final and a final is something our athletes only see in international competition and I think they did a great job adjusting,” said Cansdale.”Our goal coming into the games with half the athletes that we had in Kazan was to qualify for 28 of the top 16 swims, and heading into the open swim tomorrow we are already at 30.”
Swimming wraps up competition tomorrow with the open water 10km race.
