Raquel Peluci Xavier Camargo da Silva
 
 

 

Raquel Peluci Xavier Camargo da Silva started playing volleyball at the famous Flamengo club of Rio de Janeiro, where she built herself a career spanning seven years from 1990 to 1996 before signing for Rexona 97/98, MRV/Minas 98/00 and Vasco da Gama 2000/2001. This season she will play with Virna in MRV-Minas.

With all that experience it didn't take long for da Silva to make the Brazilian national team and excel where she has won the Youth South American title (94), the Junior South American title (94/96) and a silver medal in the Junior WCH 1995. Her progress in the junior ranks continued in the senior team where she has helped Brazil to a World Grand Prix title (98), a PanAmerican championship in 1999, a South American crown in 1997 and 2001 and a bronze medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.

Now in 2003, at the age of 25 and married, da Silva returns to the Brazilian team following one year's absence in the hope of completing one of her dreams - winning a gold medal at the Olympic Games.
