Your Favorite Volleyball Golden Triangle/Holy Trinity?

I am just wondering which is your favorite golden triangle or holy trinity in volleyball teams? golden triangle or holy trinity which i am referring to is the trio that simply carry the team whether it is on offensive skills or defensive skills. let's share our favorite, be it the women's or the men's.

my all time favorite golden triangle will be Mari-Paula-Sheila of the Brazilian Women NT. these players were the epitome of killing machines back in their glory days, especially during the Beijing Olympic Cycle. Paula Pequeno was dubbed the female version of Giba back then. Sheila brought a whole new level of being an Opposite with her great angles, her firepower, and most of all her clever tip. and Mari Steinbrecher is a meat-grinder. over the top of the block with power was her forte. and it is safe to say the Beijing Olympic gold medal that Brazil won has her name written all over it.

who are your favorite volleyball golden triangle/holy trinity? let's share!

Giba/Dante/André. I only followed the female NT when I was a kid (the era with Leila, Virna, Érika, Elisângela etc) until I discovered the male Brazilian team back in early 00s and those three made it so easy to be a fan right away. I was already deep into male volleyball by Athens 2004 and I remember going crazy over their gold medal.

Mari-Paula-Sheila was indeed an incredible triangle, but saying the 2008 gold was only thanks to them is unfair to the other players. Every single starting players of this team were absolute beasts, all of them in the top of their shape, way above the level of the competition. I cannot think of any weakness in this team (maybe Fofao's block height ?). Brazil would still have easily get the gold without one player of this triangle, maybe even two of them.

About the topic, I can quickly also think of :
Gamova-Sokolova-Godina (WCH 06)
Kim-Sokolova-Tom (Fener 2012)
Ravva-Rasic-Centoni (Cannes)
Piccinini-Gioli-Aguero (Italy)
Ana Moser-Marcia Fu-Hilma (Brazil 90s)
Ruiz-Calderon-Carillo (Cuba 08)

And I can't remember the golden times of italian league, but there must have been fantastic trios as well ^^
