Satisfactory Performance

The dust is yet to settle over Cameroon’s victory at the just-ended African Women’s Volleyball Championship in Kigali, Rwanda. The national women’s volleyball team made history for themselves after they won the African Women’s Volleyball trophy for the third consecutive time. They beat Kenya 3-1 sets during the final on Sunday September 19, 2021 at the Kigali Arena to lift the trophy. The victory came to quench the thirst of Cameroonian fans who had been waiting anxiously to celebrate another trophy for the country. 
The performance of the Lionesses in African Women’s Volleyball Championship is worthy of praise. The Lionesses put up an excellent performance throughout the competition wining all their games. The only defeat suffered by the team was when they lost the second set against Kenya during the final. From last Sunday’s victory, the Lionesses have set a record thanks to third consecutive win against the same arch rival Kenya (2017, 2019, 2021). The ladies of Coach Jean René Akono have not only maintained their dominance over rivals, Kenya but have equally proven that no team is invincible as far as continental volleyball is concerned. No Cameroonian team has won the African Volleyball Championship three times like the Lionesses.  Apart from the trophy, the Cameroonians bagged home other distinctions. Leticia Moma was crowned the best setter and team captain, Christelle Nana best player of the tournament. 
The Lionesses have equally qualified for the World Cup in Poland next year. The million questions that come to mind is will the present team be capable to keep up to standards giving the performances of some of the top players in the competition? Will they be able to stand a team like Kenya which has a young team in the next two years? Some pundits believe that even though Cameroon won the trophy there is still much work to be done. It is expected that the coaches will begin working towards building a more competitive team for the future. The Lionesses return home today as heroes of the Women’s African Volleyball Championship. The next step will be to begin preparations for the World Cup. As they prepare for future challenges, the wish of all Cameroonians is to see a more conquering squad.
