Overview

Team profile

Brazil

Defending champions Brazil have been a dominant force in the FIVB Women’s World Grand Champions Cup. Having won the title twice in the competition’s six editions and collected in addition a silver and a bronze, they top the medals table.
Brazil is a volleyball-loving nation that are trying to put behind them the huge disappointment of their elimination in the quarterfinals of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in the hands of China – something they successfully set upon with winning the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix for a record 12 time this year
Brazil won the gold medal at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and did the same at London 2012 to become the third team, after the Soviet Union and Cuba, to retain the Olympic title. The Brazilians also took Olympic bronze at Atlanta in 1996 and at Sydney 2000. They have won the South American Championship 18 times, including the last 10 times of asking. They finished third at the World Championship in Italy in 2014 having come second to Russia at the previous two editions. They also won the Grand Champions Cup in 2005 and 2013.

Coach

José Roberto Lages Guimarães

José Roberto Lages Guimarães

Jose Roberto ‘Ze Roberto’ Guimaraes has already embarked on building a brand new team after several of the Brazilian stars of the past decade or so retired following the Rio 2016 Olympic Games – and he did this in style, winning the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix and the 2017 South American Championship.

His long list of achievements in the sport extends far and wide. He is the only coach to win Olympic gold medals with both a men’s and women’s team, when he led Brazil’s men at Barcelona 1992 and the women at Beijing 2008 and London 2012. Since taking over as Brazil’s women’s team coach in 2003, Ze Roberto has guided them to seven consecutive South American Championships from 2003 to 2013 and gold at the 2011 Pan American Games.
