Women’s Junior World Championship: invincible Brazil retain their world crown four in a row
 
NAKHON RATCHASIMA, Thailand, July 27 2007 - Brazil brought the curtain down on the 2007 FIVB Women’s Junior World Championship with a big bang after storming past China in the showdown to retain their world crown four times in a row.
The sensational 25-22, 24-26, 26-24, 25-14 victory stretched the Brazilian girls unbeaten run in the World Championship to a record sixth time. Since the tournament’s inception in 1977 in Sao Paolo, Brazil won their first world title in 1987 in Seoul. They repeated the feat in 1989 (Lima), 2001 (Santo Domingo), 2003 (Suphan Buri), 2005 (Turkey) and 2007 in Thailand.
