Korea downs China for AVC bronze

BIÑAN, Laguna—Korea avenged its failed bid for a championship and dismantled China 25-11, 25-18, 25-20, to earn the bronze medal in the AVC Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship Thursday at Alonte Sports Arena.

The Koreans lost their chance for the gold when Thailand swept them in the semifinals, 25-20, 25-20, 25-21, Wednesday.
