Rubinho is back as Brazil NT's Assistance Coach!
How long does a fractured hand heal? Lucas is currently out with injury.
This one is the SF between Brazil and Mexico
Brazil vs Dominican Republic
Add Larissa to ever growing list of Brazil's MBs. Her performance in this tournament is so good.
Portal Volei Brasil reports that it is possible that there will be 14 players rosters for the Olympics in Paris but a coach will have to be chose 12 players for each game.
The Sabrina Machado needs to be in Brazil's 14 player list after her performance at Santiago.
What’s really significant here is that Luis is only 1.75m. She is perhaps the greatest female volleyball player of all time!
Everything else being equal, height is obviously a big advantage in volleyball! However, height is not the be all and end all, there’s also agility, skills, ball sense and more importantly attitude and heart, that makes a great volleyball player.
Give me Zhuang YS any day of the week over the likes of Wyl!!
Cai Bin, please take note! Zhuang didn’t get awarded the World U 21 Championships MVP by chance and it’s her skill and excellence that was recognised!
She demands and deserves a place in the China’s first team!!
There is no perhaps for Luis. She is the GOAT of women's volleyball.
I think Brazil was not concerned of their placement here. They just needed experience for their upcoming talents. I mean in the 3rd set you got Helena, Aline and Luzia all playing on court. Sabrina Machado will definitely be on Brazil's roster for VNL 2024 considering her performance here. Larissa also is another young MB that has promise. Brazil really do have a talented group of MB for the next 10 years: Julia Kudiess, Diana, Lorena, Larissa, Luzia, Juju.
Helena also had a good showing in these tournament.
Man, Sabrina Machado needs to play in VNL 2024 even if its only Round 1-2

she’s just so bad
Her 1st match in her 1st league. Took Ana Cristina 2 years to find her footing in the Turkish League and look at her now.
Btw, Julia B blocking Boskovic.
What a bad start for Bergmann. If I am not wrong, she broke the Turkish league record with her attack percentage.
I don't get the hate Julia Bergmann is getting online. That's her 1st game in her first league. Lets not forget Ana Cristina took 2 years to find her footing.
It's okay, it's your opinion.
plus think of their travel time. EU to Chile is like a day in travel with 1-2 stops. We all saw what happened with Brazil in VNL when they travelled from Brazil to Japan then Thailand then to US. It affected their conditioning.
You must be blind then, because it's one of my favourite teams, in both men's and women's volleyball. I didn't follow then that much in the last 5/6, because almost all their best players are gone, but they were among my favourites for many years.
I was simply hoping Brazil would give a sense to this tournament, sending a good team. That's all. I know the schedule inside the club season is ridiculous, because it will keep the best teams from sending their best possible players.
In the women's side, having just DR with the main team is unattractive, because they will sweep all the teams. Puerto Rico won't ask to release the players abroad for the tournament and just lost one of the 2 starters available for the tournament, who signed in Italy. Brazil sends such a weak and young team. No idea about Argentina, Colombia and Chile, but they are no challenge. Same for Mexico and Cuba.
As what I've mentioned, its the clubs' decision if they will allow their players to join this competition. This team aint weak. You have Naiane, Maiara, Edinara, Tainara and Lorena as well as Brazil's future starters.
Ze Roberto used to care about this tournament and sent the full A team or a mixted team to this tournament. This group won't Challenge Dominican Republic IMHO.
you are obviously a Brazil hater. USA and Canada didn't even bother to compete in this event. Win-win for Brazil either way. Gain more international experience for their youngsters. They only get to meet Dominican Republic in the Finals, they are in different groupings.
