FIVB: Sanya Qualification Round (LIVE Video)
There is a twelve hour time difference between Sanya, China and Kill on Two in Toronto. This is great for doing the math on the time zone differences, but isn't that great when... actually wanting to watch a match. With Marie and Annie dropping out of FIVB Sanya, Canadians are left with three teams still in the tournament. In the first round, team Rodrigue-MacTavish will face off against the 38th seed from Austraila, Marie-Kelly. Team Valjas-Whitaker are matched up against the 30th seeded French team of Longuet-Larche. Liz Maloney and Heather Bansley got a bye in the first round and will play a team from the Netherlands in the second round later on in the day.

After three rounds of qualification, the three women's duos from Canada were all eliminated. They all made it past the first round defeating Australia and France but came up short in the second round with two of our teams losing to two Italian teams. Team Bansley/Maloney made it past round two, but their main draw hopes came up short losing in the third round to the Russians 2-1.
|Bansley-Maloney||def||Kadijk R.-Mooren||2-1 (19-121)(21-19)(15-12)|
