Olympic MVP Zhu Ting Leaves Champions League Semi-Final With Injury

The 2016 Olympic and 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix Most Valuable Player Zhu Ting has left the semi-final of the Champions League semi-final with what appears to be a right leg injury.

With her Turkish club VakifBank Istanbul leading Imoco Volley Conegliano 2 sets to 0 on Saturday evening in Bucharest, Zhu Ting took a seat behind the team’s bench and was being attended to by trainers. She didn’t wind up returning to that 3rd set, as Conegliano, dealing with a rash of injuries of their own this season, roared their way to a 25-16 set win.

But the scare was short-lived, as Zhu has returned to the court in the 4th set for VakifBank.

As indication of Zhu’s value to the team, VakifBank hit at 50% in the 1st set and 45% in the 2nd set, but that fell to just 34% in the 3rd set.

In spite of Zhu’s return, the Italian champions Conegliano, who have shown an indomitable fight through adversity all season, still have sprinted out to an early 8-5 lead in the 4th.

Full recap will come at the conclusion of the match.
