On October 29, Beijing time, Wu Sheng was elected as the new head coach of Chinese men’s volleyball team and will lead the team to prepare for the Paris Olympic cycle. Wu Sheng once led Zhejiang Women’s volleyball team to win the league championship in the 2013-2014 season, and turned to coach Zhejiang men’s volleyball team to help the team get out of the trough quickly. He will lead the Chinese men’s volleyball team to meet the new test this time.
Wu Sheng was handsome for the first time. The Chinese men’s volleyball team once led Zhejiang men’s and women’s volleyball team to create good results.
Wu Sheng, the new coach of Chinese men’s volleyball team, was born in 1966. he used to be a national player of the men’s volleyball team. After retirement, he started his coaching career in Zhejiang Women’s volleyball team, and later he joined Cai Bin, the assistant of the National Youth women’s volleyball team. In 2009, Wu Sheng succeeded Wang Hebing in coaching Zhejiang men’s volleyball team, leading the team to win the fifth place in the National Games. In 2010, Wu Sheng took over and became the chief coach of Zhejiang Women’s volleyball team as the old coach Xu Jiande raised the national youth team.
From the seventh place in the 2011-2012 league, to the bronze medal in the top three in the 2012-2013 season, and then to the champion in the 2013-2014 season, Wu Sheng led Zhejiang Women’s volleyball team to rise year after year, and also cultivated Li Jing, Wang Na, wang Huimin, Yang Zhou, Shan Danna and other excellent players.
Women Volleyball League matches is as strong as Lin. It is not easy for Wu Sheng to lead the Quanhua class in Zhejiang to achieve good results repeatedly. His coaching ability is beyond doubt by integrating a group of players who are not particularly excellent in physical condition to form a fast and changeable playing style. As early as 2013, when the Chinese women’s volleyball team selected the coach, Wu Sheng was once one of the hot spots. After Lang Ping returned to coach the national women’s volleyball team for the second time, he was invited to enter the coaching team of the Chinese women’s volleyball team, but Wu Sheng finally declined Lang Ping’s invitation.
In 2018, Zhejiang men’s and women’s volleyball team switched to the coach, and Wu Sheng turned to the coach of Zhejiang men’s volleyball team. Zhejiang men’s volleyball team only ranked 8th in the Premier League of 2017-2018 season. Wu Sheng led the team for just two years after taking office, helping the team out of the trough. Zhejiang successively won the fourth place and the runner-up in the 2019-2020 season and the just-ended 202020national championship. Young players such as Zhang Jingzhen, Li Yongzhen, Zhang Guanhua and Liu Hao made everyone fully feel the impact of the youth storm of Zhejiang men’s volleyball team.
Foreign teachers are not acclimatized. The old handsome is hard to pull back and stop the Tokyo cycle men’s volleyball team from drinking hate again
Chinese men’s volleyball team has participated in the Olympic Games twice in history. In 1984, Los Angeles Olympic Games won the 8th place as a supplementary team due to the boycott of Eastern European countries. In 2008, Beijing Olympic Games ranked 5th as the host. It is the goal of Chinese men’s volleyball team to get an Olympic qualification based on its own strength for many years. It’s a pity that many qualifiers and Olympic qualifier events are not as skilled as others or are difficult to remove. So far, this wish has not been realized.
The Chinese men’s volleyball team hired a foreign teacher for the first time in the Tokyo Olympic cycle, and invited the famous Argentine coach Raul. Raul has rich coaching experience and advanced volleyball concept. At the beginning of taking office in 2017, he also led the men’s volleyball team to play elegant demeanour in the World League, and new players such as Jiang Chuan and Liu Libin emerged. Unfortunately, he didn’t adapt to China’s national conditions and led the team for three years. The Asian Championship in 2017 was only ranked 6th. The 5th battle of the group match of the world championship in 2018 was all ink and almost fragile. The Asian Championship in 2019 lost to Taipei, China and then won 6th. The team’s performance was poor, morale was low, and the relationship with the players was not harmonious. Raul finally left sadly.
Tokyo Olympic Asian qualifier is imminent. The 64-year-old Marshal Shen Fulin went out without hesitation and took over the Chinese men’s volleyball team in October, 2019. After Shen Fulin took office, he paid close attention to the team’s mental outlook and achieved certain results. Unfortunately, in the Asian qualifier in January 202020, the Chinese men’s volleyball team failed to win the final match against Iran.
The team members have excellent skills but the hard men’s volleyball team has many difficulties in entering Paris.
Wu Sheng took over the Chinese men’s volleyball team this time and will lead the team to prepare for the Paris Olympic cycle, aiming to march into the 2022 Paris Olympic Games. Although the Chinese men’s volleyball team suffered another setback in the Tokyo Olympic cycle, the two coaches Raul and Shen Fulin also cultivated talents for the team. Jiang Chuan, Liu Libin and other players are in the year of playing and have excellent physical condition, but the team has additional supplement fresh blood in positions such as second pass and secondary attack.
The height of Chinese men’s volleyball team is good, but the basic skills and strength of the helpless players are lacking. In addition, the limited opportunities to participate in high-level confrontation and the poor ability of reading competitions and psychological endurance limit the team’s progress to a higher level. For the new coach Wu Sheng, the key is to cultivate good training and competition style of players and pay close attention to technical details.
It is difficult for Chinese men’s volleyball team to enter the Paris Olympic Games. Not only did the team need to add more new forces, but also the qualification determination of Paris Olympic volleyball competition changed, and the Olympic unsuccessful race was canceled. In addition to the host France, 6 teams were produced through the 3 Olympic qualifier in 2023, and the other 5 places belonged to the world’s highest ranking team among the teams that have not yet been shortlisted in 5 continents. This shortlisting method emphasizes the importance of world ranking.
In the new world ranking system of the International Volleyball Federation, the qualification matches of the Olympic Games, World Championships, National League matches, Intercontinental Championships and the above competitions will all be counted, and not only the ranking of each competition will be calculated, at the same time, we also consider the outcome of each match between teams. This means that the Chinese men’s volleyball team must strive to win in the above events. Even in Asia, Iran, Japan, South Korea and Australia are extremely difficult to deal.
When the Chinese men’s volleyball team is at a relatively low ebb, Wu Sheng’s courage to choose to take over is commendable. The past coaching result proved his ability, but for the first time, Wu Sheng and his players still need to make more efforts to take charge of the national character team independently to achieve the goal of marching into the Paris Olympics.
