Olympiakos’s women lift CEV Challenge Cup in Turkey

Dressed in blue, Greek women’s volleyball champion Olympiakos triumphed 3-1 at Bursa on Wednesday to overturn its 3-2 home loss and lift the CEV Challenge Cup, Europe’s third-tier club competition.

The Greeks lost the first set 25-23 in Turkey, in front of a full house, but powered back to win the following three 25-20, 25-18 and 25-16 in emphatic fashion.

Last season the two teams had also met in the final, but this time Olympiakos avenged its defeat last year winning the trophy at the very court it had lost it in 2017.

Later in the evening the Olympiakos men’s team faled to overturn its 3-1 loss at Ravenna in men’s CEV Challenge Cup final, losing at home by the same score.
