TV replay coming for volleyball worlds

The president of volleyball’s governing body says video replay

will be introduced in time for the world championships.

FIVB President Wei Jizhong says with shots reaching up to 75 mph

”a line judge cannot judge this, impossible. (We will) use new

technology in the line and above (the) net to solve all the

problems.”

Wei said the sport would introduce line sensor technology and TV

replay for net calls ”to guarantee fair play.”

Wei, whose term ends in September, added he was happy with the

men’s competition at the Olympics but the women’s tournament

”level is not as expected. … they did their best but due to

their age they cannot reach (a) high level.”
