The top 24 teams from around the globe collide at the net in the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship in Japan. The tournament will be held from Sept. 29 to Oct. 20. The United States, the defending champions who beat China in the 2014 final in Italy, received an automatic invite to the event along with the host nation. The inaugural event was in 1952. Russia holds the record for the most titles with seven.
The last - and only - time that a North American nation won the Men's Volleyball World Championship, Ronald Reagan was in the White House. That was in 1986. The USA captured the global crown in France at the expense of the Soviet Union. The Soviet empire long ago crumbled, but the Americans are still going strong and are one of the betting favorites to earn the 2018 world volleyball crown.
