Volleyball: Argentine Women Comeback Over Colombia to CSV Olympic Qualifier Triumph

A comeback victory was needed for Argentina to win the CSV Women’s Olympic Qualifier. Overall, four teams competed in a round robin tournament where the winner qualified to the Olympics. The CSV Women’s Continental Olympic Qualification Tournament was held in Bogota, Colombia from January 7th to January 9th 2020.

The first two round of matches saw Argentina and Colombia triumph over Peru and Venezuela in straight sets, making the final match between the two nations the decider. Colombia won the first set 25-16, but Argentina would go on to win the next three sets to win the title and an Olympic quota.
