Kobe, Japan, May 15, 2017 - The final day of competition at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship shone the spotlight on the many faces of celebration at the Green Arena Kobe on Sunday.
It was a day to highlight the ultimate showcase of women’s club volleyball.
It was a day to applaud lightning-swift serves.
It was day to anticipate competition between league rivals.
It was a day to celebrate a win before heading home.
It was a day to rejoice the bronze,
with much meaning as any medal of another colour.
It was a day to strengthen team pride even in defeat,
and a day for gratitude to be surrounded by love and support.
It was a day to savour the sweet taste of victory,
Even after the bitter moments of struggle and challenge.

Among the best of the best.
It was a day to honour the real MVP behind each one of Sunday’s winners.
