NAIROBI , Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- The Kenyan women's volleyball team once again ruled the continent by clinching the eighth Africa Nations Championships crown.

But the question remains whether they can extend the same dominance at next year's World Championships in Italy.

The hosts recovered in the final set to complete a 3-0 whitewash of Tunisia on Thursday night (25-17, 25-20, 25-23) to complete the perfect record at the round robin tournament having dismissed Cameroon, Senegal, Algeria and Egypt by the same score line to underline their continental supremacy.

"We are now embarking on training ahead of the World Championships qualifiers in November but I'm pleased my team did as I asked of them in a very difficult match ," the team's coach, David Lung'aho enthused after leading the girls to yet another Africa crown.

While it goes without question Kenya are among the favourites to secure one of the two berths reserved for African teams for the 2014 FIVB World Cup in the November continental qualifiers, what remains is whether the talented side can make an impact at the global stage.

At the last World Championships in Japan in 2011, the East Africans finished joint 21st (last) with fellow Africans Algeria, Canada and Kazakhstan in the last edition in without winning a single game , collecting only two sets against Chinese Taipei.

Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) has the task of investing heavily in the team to give them a chance against global women's volleyball superpowers Russia, Brazil, U.S. Japan and Italy who crushed the African queens in humiliating fashion in Japan.

Reports that the team was ejected from the hostels of the tournament venue, Nairobi's Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani before the African Championships cast a dark shadow on KVF- led by veteran administrator , Waithaka Kioni, who is also the vice-president of CAVB, the continental body.

While Kioni and his administration have mastered the art of begging for funds, it is shocking that the enormous commercial potential the team possesses, such marketing female products in Kenyan and beyond owing to their extended continental success has not be exploited.

"We have sent numerous proposals to companies but they are yet to respond ," was Kioni's wistful reply when that was passed across to him.

However, his assessment contradicts recent developments in the country's sports sponsorship environment where companies are spending millions of dollars in engaging federations, teams and in some cases, individual athletes.

Athletics Kenya, Kenya Rugby Union , national football team Harambee Stars and individual athletes like Javelin star, Julius Yego and sevens rugby ace Collins Injera are few examples of sports institutions and exponents who have benefited from the corporate windfall in recent times in Kenya.

A team that has won eight African crowns, participated at the Olympics and World Championships should be an easy sell to enable thorough preparations for the global showpiece if the kind of beating Kenya suffered in Japan is not to be repeated.

Lower Bengal is known as the Land of Rivers and Rivulets characterised by a labyrinthine maze of water bodies-rivers, rivulets and creeks.

The Indian Sunderban tour is known as the Hooghly (lower part of the river Ganges)–Matla estuary. Here, the freshwater of the rivers mingles with the sea water as the latter enters hundreds of creeks and channels during high tide. The rivers swell and subside with water levels rising and falling as much as 15 feet. There are two tides and two ebbs every day. A working formula is used by local people of <"">Sunderban National Park for calculating the tide. On the full moon or new moon if the high tide is at 5.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. , the next day it will be 45 minutes before, i.e. at 4.15 a.m. and 4.15 p.m. After 6 hrs of high tide, the low or ebb tide follows.

According to their water flow in the various creeks and channels are given different names. Some channels in the Sundarbans National Park, which have tidal flow, end blindly , finding no possible outlet, after traversing some distance. They form swampy areas called Morani, whereas in some creeks which have connection with tidal rivers at both ends, water flows from both sides even at low or high tide. These creeks are commonly called Bharani. Again, some creeks with an east-west direction of water flow which show a great rise of water level or no sign of receding water level even during ebb tide , are called Duania.

While our sundarban tour we found that the rivers of the Indian Sunderbans carry much less silt and sweet water in comparison to those of the Bangladesh Sunderbans. Consequently, they draw more sea water inside. More-over, due to bulk drainage of water from the Hooghly river system to the Padma River in Bangladesh, the fresh-water rivers like Matla and Bidyadhari do not get much freshwater and have become almost tidal rivers. Due to this influx of sea water in the riverine terrain area of Sundarbans National Park, the rivers of the Indian Sunderbans are more like outstretched arms of the sea rather than freshwater rivers. Salinity is intense and it has a threatening impact on the mangrove community. Salinity of the Indian Sunderbans varies from as low as eight parts per thousand to as high as 20 parts per thousand.

The major rivers of the Indian Sunderban Travel destination are:

Matla: Three rivers viz. Bidyadhari , Khuratya and Rampura Khal join near Canning and flow as the wide-mouthed Matla into the Bay of Bengal.

Bidyadhari: This is a branch of the river Hooghly. In bygone days it was highly navigable, but now it acts as a dump for sewerage and an outlet for excess rain water for the city of Kolkata. Tweet <.
