Osaka, Japan, 5 October 2018 - Rio 2014 Olympic champions China go
head-to-head Sunday at the 2018 FIVB World Championship in a rematch of
the 2018 Asian Games final which China won in straight sets. The two
sides meet for the third in a World Championship with China having won
both previous encounters. In fact, Thailand have only beaten China twice
in an FIVB competition, at the 2011 and 2012 FIVB World Grand Prix.
