Canada was no match for Russia in its opening match of the men’s world volleyball championship on Monday in Poland.
Canada, ranked 15th in the world, was swept 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-21) by Russia, ranked No.2. Former Brandon high school stars Dustin Schneider, a 28-year-old setter, and Toon Van Lankvelt, a 29-year-old left side, were in the Canadian lineup but did not play.
Next action for Canada (0-1) is Wednesday when it battles Bulgaria (1-0), which is ranked eighth in the world.
