Lausanne, Switzerland – The International Olympic Committee wants to lower the volleyball net at the next summer olympics in Tokyo in 2020.
“Lowering the net will make the match much more interesting,” a member of the committee stated:”At this moment the players constantly have to wave their hands, looking like idiots”. The committee decided on lowering the volleyball net by at least 50cm. “It is especially more fair for the participating team from countries where the average person height is lower,” the member of the committee added. Lowering the net will also make the phase of the game much faster. Resulting in more tense matches and higher scores.
