A lot of intensity on the faces of the VakifBank Istanbul in their match against Volero Le Cannet at the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship.

Zhu commanded VakifBank’s offence with her towering spikes against the Volero blockers. As Zhu went on that unstoppable scoring spree, Karakurt joined in, making it more difficult for Volero to execute their defence.

Bjelica tried to keep the Volero offence going, but Zhu and Karakurt’s scoring flair sparked a bigger run that secured the match in favour of the Turkish club.
