The 2010 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship was the 16th edition of the FIVB World Championship. Like the previous 2006 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship, the 2010 edition also was held in Japan, from October 29, 2010 to November 14, 2010, though the range of venues and locations was modified slightly (Matsumoto and Hamamatsu replaced Sapporo and Kobe in 2010). Twenty-four teams participated in the tournament.

The tournament was won by Russia, who finished with a perfect record, defeating Brazil in the intense final game.[1][2] Japan defeated the United States for the third place, winning their first bronze medal in the tournament history, and the first medal since 1978, having so far three gold and three silver already to their name.[3] Russia won its second straight title,[4] while Brazil was prevented from achieving a volleyball double of winning both the men's championship and the women's championship in the same year.

Russia's towering outside hitter Yekaterina Gamova was named the tournament Most Valuable Player.[5]

Final[edit]

The final was a repeat of the 2006 final, between Russia and Brazil. Both teams had cruised through the group stages undefeated, though Brazil got to the final after winning a tough five-set semifinal match with Japan the day before.[6]

Russia was forced to rally from a set down twice, winning in five sets (21–25, 25–17, 20–25, 25–14, 15–11). Russia's 2.02 meter tall Yekaterina Gamova led all scorers with a tournament-high 35 points, while Sheilla Castro led Brazil with 26.[6]

The match was played at the Yoyogi National Stadium in Tokyo in front of a crowd of 12,000.[7]
