Turkey's women volleyball team lost to Brazil in their first face-off of the London Games. The 'Sultans' failed to keep up with their competition on the court, resulting in a final score of 3-2.

The team will play against China in the second match of the group scheduled for July 30.

This is the first time in 52 years that Turkey is being represented in team sports, with both the women’s volleyball and basketball teams winning Olympic berths.

I suspect the writer of this article has seen the full game. The BBC presentar concluded the emission with the following words: "Match goes to Brasil, but the honour, passion, excitement, ... goes to Turkey. They made their country proud! " As he iterated many times this was a fantastic 1st day sportive event, the best of the day. I am very proud of the team and think they will do even better in the days to come. Go girls !

You have such high standards! Did you even see the game. A game against the best team in the world? A game that saw the Turks come back from severe deficits twice. A game that the Turks took to the limit of 5 sets. No other volleyball match went that far. What were you watching? "Failed to impress"? What "fails to impress" are the Turkish men"s teams. What fails to impress is your inability to see a positive achievement. A pathetic article, that's what fails to impress me.
