Team profile

Led by head coach Percy Oncken, the reigning World Champion Brazilian Junior Team is attempting to capture its fourth title (93, 01 and 07) at the July 31- August 9 event in Pune, India.

In addition to their three gold medals, the Brazilians have won five silvers (81, 95, 97, 03 and 05) and three bronzes (77, 89 and 99) at the World Championship.

The core of the team finished second at the South American Championship last season, when it lost to Argentina in the final. The main players in that tournament were wing-spiker Mauricio, elected the best receiver, and libero Thales, who was named best digger.

In 2009, Brazil will defend its world title against 15 countries: Argentina, Belgium, Belarus, Canada, China, Cuba, Egypt, France, Greece, India, Iran, Poland, Russia, Tunisia and the USA.
