    highlights of last night game between USA and Peru here:

    Argentina almost upset the whole world last night with an excellent performance in the first two sets.

    The first Argentina was ahead 24-22, but they let brazilians to recover and win 26-24.
    Then the second set Argentina built a fair advantage of 4-5 points, and could hold the pressure from the Olympic champions.
    The third and fourth sets, the brazilian block worked almost perfectly to help them win the game.

    see the comments from the norceca website:…road%20to%20Argentina.htm

    the game statistics here:…787/062809BRAARGStats.pdf

    About Argentina, they are building a very interesting and young team that may be a nice surprise in the few next years.

    Last year in the VII Panam Cup they reach the third place, and was the only team to beat the Dominicans wich at the end ended up being the champions.

    Then in the Final four tournament played in Brazil (Brazil, Cuba, Dominican Rep, and Argentina), Argentina upset the cuban team 3-1 in the game for the third place.

    The real goal for Argentinians this year is to qualify for the WCH2010. The tournament will be held in Brazil in four weeks. Only two spots were given to South America. :huh:

    Well, as I said before, it seems that they will only show peruvian matches, which may or may not be interesting enough. here is the list of games and time (GMT):

    PANAM CUP 2009:
    FRI 26: PER x MEX 23:00
    SAT 27: PER x CRC 24:00
    SUN 28: PER x P.RICO 23:00
    MON 29: PER x USA 24:00
    TUE 30: PER x GUA

    The games and time for 1/4, semis and final are still to be confirmed

    good luck! :cup:

    No, I don't live in Peru, but I can watch that tv channel online.

    so if you're interested I will post the links to watch these games for both PanAm games and U-18 world championship in Thailand LIVE! :rolll:

    Peruvian television will broadcast Panam Cup 2009, but I'm afraid it will show only Peru games :aww: , and probably the gold medal match wich I think will be between USA vs Brazil. :win:

    The same network "frecuencia latina", will broadcast the girls's U-18 World championship from Thailand.

    This is the TV-commercial regarding these two competitions to be broadcasted (in spanish of course :dance6: ) . :cup:


    Good group for Poland. Only Brazil is really strong. Comparing with pool D, ours is very easy.

    I'm not sure if this is an easy pool for Poland. Brazil es very strong, but it's not as in previous world championship.
    As for Dominican Republic, they have a competitive team and they have two stars: Eve Mejia and Joselyne Rodriguez, players that are playing for the senior team. In fact these two player were in the starting line-up for the Dominicans in the recent tournament in China beating Cuba and Turkey.

    Argentina and Venezuela qualify for the last round to join host country Brazil and Peru.
    The last round in south america concedes two tickets for the WCH2010 in Japan.

    USA volleyball web site is out of date.

    Cuba and Venezuela, teams that were originally scheduled to play in this tournament, decided to withdrawal, and there is not official statement about the reason for this decision.

    I think this is just a political situacion, because we al know the anti-american policy from the governments of Cuba and Venezuela. It is just my personal opinion.

    It's a pity that this happens because , Cuba will not play in this tournament and therefore not being able to qualify for the 2010 World Grand Prix.

    Yesterday result


    Dominican Republic JUNIOR team beat Bulgaria SENIOR team 3-2: 25-23, 19-25, 26-24. 14-25 y 12-15.

    Yaneva with 20 points and Chitsigoy with 16 were the top scorers for Bulgaria. Rodriguez and Mejia played also very well.

    Dominican Republic is taking these games to prepare for the upcoming FIVB Junior World Championship in July.

    Very disappointing performance from Russia and Holland. On the other hand, Italy and Serbia are likely going to play for the gold medal match.
    Italy has improved their height with a couple of players above 2.00m...... impressive :what:

    BRAZIL 3x1 PERU: 25-27, 25-12, 25-20, 25-19 :cup:

    Lima, Peru September 6, 2008 – Brazil won the Youth South American Championship 2008 for the sixth straight time after an intense final match with Peru finished 3-1. Both Brazil and Peru qualified for the Youth World Championship in Mexico in 2009.

    The champions started dominating the “jogo” during the first set, but the Peruvians, showing great power of recovery, equalled the score and then won the set 27-25.

    In the next two sets, Brazil, using their players’ height, powerful spike and block, came back at the Peruvians and secured the sets 25-12 and 25-20.

    In the fourth set, the hosts, supported by 5,000 people in the Dibos Coliseum in Lima, pushed for the set, but it wasn’t enough. Brazil through second setter Priscila finally closed the set 25-19 for the match.

    “Two years ago, the people and their support was the same but the response of the Peruvian team wasn’t the same, they have developed a lot in this time,” said Brazil captain Rosane Maggioni.

    For the third place, Venezuela beat Argentina 3-1 (33-31, 19-25, 25-20, 25-23)
