Qatar defeat China

Tehran, 16 November 2022 - Qatar's Cherif Younousse and Ahmed Tijan made a perfect start the Bandar Abbas-hosted Asian Senior Men’s Beach Volleyball Championship as the superb duo defeated Chinese Wang Yanwei/Zhou Chaowei 21-16, 23-21 in Pool B.

With only top two teams from each pool advancing to the knockout round of last 16, the Chinese duo suffered two straight losses to eventually crash out of the championship.  

Cherif and Ahmed, bronze medallists at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, winners at the 2018 and 2019 Asian Championships and gold medallists at the 2018 Asian Games, will next play Thailand’s Dunwinit Kaewsai/Intuch Techakijvorakul, who earlier came back to beat the Chinese duo 2-1, in their last match in Pool B on Wednesday. 

However, win or lose, both Thai and Qatari teams have already guaranteed their spots in the Thursday’s round of 16.
