Gaming facemask | Covid masks are worn by China's volleyball team during a match, causing anger.

Who went insane and made the choice? a user on Weibo wrote.

SINGAPORE — The Chinese national women's volleyball team made an incredible comeback, but because its players were shielded from view at the start of the match, the triumph received more attention than usual.

The Chinese players were hiding their faces as they lost 24-26 to Iran in the opening set of their match at the Asian Volleyball Confederation Cup taking place in the Philippines.

After that, though, the masks came off, and they easily won the remaining three sets, 25-19, 25-10, and 25-13, to win Group A.

The reigning champions, China, will now play Saturday's quarterfinal opponent, Australia. While many on social media quickly criticised the decision to play wearing masks, some applauded the triumph. On the Chinese microblogging site Weibo, a hashtag associated with the incident has garnered nearly 80 million views.

One person asked, "Who went insane and made the decision?" "Such arduous activity is already making me gasp for air."

Don't you have any common sense, someone else wrote.
