HONG KONG - China women's volleyball team arrived in Hong Kong on Tuesday night to prepare for their second week matches of the FIVB Women's Nations League.

The team enjoyed a perfect winning record in four matches in the first week of the tournament in Nagoya, Japan. When the team led by head coach Cai Bin walked out of the airport, they received a warm welcome from local fans.

"We are pleased to come back to Hong Kong to play and see many fans waiting here," said Cai. "We will focus on fitness recovery after our Nagoya campaign. The opponents in Hong Kong, especially those European sides, are strong, but we will just keep our own style of play."
