BAHRAIN bowed to hosts Egypt to settle for the silver medals in the 21st Arab Men’s Volleyball Championship in Cairo last night.
The Bahrainis gave their best before eventually going down to Egypt in their final game 1-3 (23-25, 25-19, 23-25, 25-15).
It was a tightly contested final that could have gone either way, but once Egypt took control of the contest in the third set, their rivals looked increasingly dejected and rattled. The home team then took full advantage as Bahrain could not recover.
In other matches, Oman beat Iraq 3-1 (25-20, 25-19, 23-25, 25-19) and Algeria downed Palestine 3-0 (25-20, 25-6, 25-12). Full report – Page 20
