China's women's volleyball team beat South Korea 3-1 in the last game of the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) preliminary phase for their third straight win on Sunday.

With a 25-13, 19-25, 25-19, 26-24 victory, China registered their eighth win from 12 games in the tournament.

Li Yingying scored 23 points and Gong Xiangyu added 17 for China, while Lee Han-bi had 12 points for South Korea.

China, who secured a place in the upcoming VNL finals after beating the Dominican Republic 3-0 on Friday, now sits fourth in the preliminary phase on 26 points.

South Korea is the only team without a win in the league.

The women's VNL kicked off on May 31. The finals will be held in Ankara, Turkey from July 13 to 17.
