Team profile

Brazil has been one of the strongest teams in Volleyball history, and the defending champions will be favourites to reclaim their title this year. The seven time FIVB World League winners will be following up from success at the FIVB Grand Champions Cup in Japan last year as well as their record-breaking ninth FIVB World League title in 2010.

Their recent success has run alongside the recruitment of Bernardinho as coach in 2001.

He led the team to memorable victories including first place in the 2001 and 2003 editions of the World League and the gold medal at the 2002 World Championship.

In 2003, Bernardinho’s work became better as he guided the team to further titles in the World League and the World Cup.


In July 2004, Brazil claimed their fourth World League title picking up its second Olympic gold medal, in Athens.


In 2005 he earned his fourth gold in the World League and gold at the FIVB World Grand Champions Cup before winning another gold at the World League and the FIVB World Championship the following year.


2007 saw victories in the World League and the World Cup. However in 2008, Brazil failed to win another Olympic Games and came fourth in the World League in Rio de Janeiro.

In 2009, however, the coach led a new team that won the World League and the World Grand Champions Cup, before following it up with another World League triumph this year.

Coach profile

As a player the 50-year-old "Bernardinho" won bronze at the 1981 World Cup and silver medals at the 1982 World Championship and the 1984 Olympics.

As Brazilian women’s coach he won silver at the 1994 World Championship, bronze twice at the Olympics (1996 & 2000) and gold at the World Grand Prix (1994, 1996, 1998).

As Brazilian men’s coach he has won Olympic gold (2004) and silver (2008), and gold at the World Championships (2002, 2006), the World League (2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010), the World Cup (2003, 2007) and the WGCC (2005, 2009).
