Egypt women volleyball team has withdrawn from Rio 2016 Olympic qualifiers playoff.

Egyptian Volleyball Federation (EVF) has formally withdrawn Egypt women volleyball team from Olympics 2016 contention.

The team was to participate in the playoffs to determine the intercontinental qualifier. This is after they missed out on automatic qualication.

School final examination is the reason for withdrawing. The exams period coincides with the playoff tournament. Squad members’ parents preferred their children sitting for exams.

Withdrawal was via a letter, sent by EVF president Fouad Abdel Salam, to the international governing body. Egypt was to compete against Colombia, Kenya and Puerto Rico.

The playoffs will take place in Puerto Rico from May 20-22, 2016.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
