Germany Vote Cambodia Cellcard 2009 WOVD Volleyball World Cup Best Ever World Champions Germany unanimously voted the Cambodia Cellcard 2009 WOVD Volleyball World Cup the best tournament they'd ever attended at a team meeting prior to their departure on Monday.

Germany Coach Athanasious Papageorgiou and the team bade farewell to the local organising committee Monday morning and informed them of their vote taken the night before. The professionalism of the CNVLD together with the nationwide passion for the event, the electric atmosphere in the packed Olympic Stadium and the welcome from the Cambodian people all influenced the decision of the most experienced team in the world. Stars Oliver Gutfleisch and Robert Kampcyck remained in awe of the local support and highlighted the Germany Cambodia match as the most memorable of their lives. Never had the multiple world champions ever played before so many fans or witnessed such passion in support of athletes with a disability.

Coach 'Papa' felt that Cambodia had won regardless of the national team's unexpected forth place and had placed itself firmly on the map as a remarkable international venue. The bonds of friendship between the two teams goes back more than a decade and now after their second win on Cambodian soil, Germany are certain they will return and continue to stand up for standing volleyball with Cambodia.

Half the German team remained in Cambodia for an extended holiday on the coast, a direct socio-economic benefit to Cambodia as a result of the hosting an international sports event. The CNVLD congratulatesGermany once again for their victory as Cambodia Cellcard 2009 WOVD Volleyball World Cup Champions and wishes them safe journey home.
