Team profile

Brazil



Brazil will count on their home-court advantage as they attempt for a three-peat at the women’s Olympic volleyball in Rio de Janeiro. Brazil won their first-ever gold medal at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and then followed it up with another gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games to become the third team, after the Soviet Union and Cuba to retain the title. The Brazilians will compete at the Olympic Games for the 10th consecutive time since the Moscow 1980 Olympic Games. The Brazilians also took Olympic bronze at Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000. They have won the South American Championships 18 times, including the last 11 editions. They finished third at the World Championship in Italy 2014, having come second to Russia at the previous two editions and they won the World Grand Champions Cup in 2005 and 2013.Brazil have been a dominant force in the World Grand Prix since its inception, and in the last 12 editions, they have been champions seven times and runners-up on three occasions and a bronze medallist in 2015. Brazil is a volleyball-loving nation, illustrated by the fact that more ticket applications have been made for volleyball than any other sport at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Their coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes is one of the most successful coaches in volleyball history and he is looking for his eighth World Grand Prix title and third Olympic gold medal with his team.
