April 7, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.

Tournament favourite Sierra Leone and host nation Guinea have proceeded to the second phase of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games qualifiers in the CAVB Continental Cup as both their male and female teams finished above Guinean Bissau to progress.

The two nations proved too strong for Guinea Bissau in their Pool 3 Zone 2 qualifiers as both Bissau teams suffered heavily in the three days tournament.

Sierra Leone topped the men’s ranking after beating both Guinean Bissau and Guinea to secure a total of 16 points, which leaves the host in second place with 12 points, whilst Guinea Bissau ended up with eight points.

However, things were different in the women’s classification as Guinea finished at the top of the table with 15 points, followed by Sierra Leone with 13 points and Guinea Bissau in third with eight points.

Both Sierra Leone and Guinea now await their next opponents in the next round of the qualifiers as the polling will be announced by the African governing body, CAVB.
