Ukraine were medal favourites going into this tournament.--LauraHale (talk) 09:09, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

As Team GB was introduced, the crowd went absolutely nuts with several players getting very loud cheers. Great Britain served first. --LauraHale (talk) 08:01, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Ukraine took an early lead of 0-5 in the first set again GB. And then 0-6. When GB scored their first point, the crowd went nuts. And nuts again when they scored a second time to bring the score 2-6 with Ukraine winning.

Score went 6-9 with Ukraine still winning. Crowd remains into it and for the home side. --LauraHale (talk)

Ukraine started putting away the game more and got the score 7-16. --LauraHale (talk) 08:13, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Announcer said this was the first time that GB was playing, and the court is much smaller so it requires faster response times. Ukraine is the number one ranked European team. --LauraHale (talk)

Ukraine goes ahead 7-18. --LauraHale (talk) 08:13, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

GB trails 9-20. At this point, they called a time out. In sitting volleyball, players sit much closer to the net.

Despite the name sitting, several players can walk. Following the time out, four of GB's players walked back onto the court. --LauraHale (talk) 08:15, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Ukraine subbed out their captain when score 9-22. --LauraHale (talk) 08:18, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Crowd continues to go nuts when GB scores, which they did right away after time out 1-5. Ukraine answered right back to make it 1-6. --LauraHale (talk) 08:24, 31 August 2012 (UTC) GB takes early time out when they are down 0-5. --LauraHale (talk) 08:23, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

GB gets 2 quick points: 3-6. --LauraHale (talk) 08:25, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Player legs can go under net.

It is a let if both teams basically have ball stuck going over net and cannot do it. --LauraHale (talk) 08:26, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Ukraine ahead 8-14. Ukraine does really good at blocking at the net and one of the reasons they are ahead. Score goes 8-15. Then 8-16. Then second technical time out.

Announcer says GB shows flashes where they look like can play well. --LauraHale (talk) 08:33, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

pushing Ukraine deep in the court and spreading them out worked for GB and momentum shift with score going 15-20. --LauraHale (talk) 08:37, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

After a time out, only one Ukraine player walked back on to the court.

GB and Ukraine both had players called in the match for carrying the ball. --LauraHale (talk)

GB got score to 17-21 and Ukraine called a time out. Only two Ukranian players standing. Though two on GB stood during time out.

Announcer asked for people to cheer for Ukraine if they were supporting and really quiet. Asked for GB and place went nuts. --LauraHale (talk) 08:41, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

20-23 for Ukrain and then 24-20 for set point. GB does a substitution at this point. All Ukraine players at net. Ukraine goes on to win second set 20-25. --LauraHale (talk) 08:44, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Ukraine then ahead 2-8 and technical time out. --LauraHale (talk) 08:51, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Ukraine ahead 6-18. GB fans chanting Team GB. Then 6-19. --LauraHale (talk) 08:58, 31 August 2012 (UTC)Reply
