Kenya proved in home its prism on the continent. Disappointment is Algeria, participant in last two Olympic Games: in Beijing (2008) and in London (2012). This is next proof for wrong decision from FIVB with giving Algeria Wild Card for World Grand Prix 2013. I suppose that Kenya would play there at least a bit better, then it might appear an opportunity of tearing off by African team at least few sets and maybe even a point.
