Team profile

Since José Roberto Guimarães took over as Brazil’s coach in 2003, success has been followed by success. 

In his first year, the team won gold at the South American Championship and silver at the World Cup. 

The following season, Brazil won the World Grand Prix and placed fourth at the Olympic Games. 

In 2005, they won the Montreux Volley Masters, the Grand Prix, the South American Championship, the World Championship Cup and the Courmayeur Tournament. 

They had an exceptional year in 2008, clinching their first Olympic gold medal and finishing first in the World Grand Prix and the Final Four tournament. 

They were almost perfect in 2009, winning the Montreux Volley Masters, the Pan American Cup, the World Championship qualifying tournament, the World Grand Prix, the Final Four tournament and the South American Championship. They had to settle for silver in the Champions Cup. 

In 2010, Brazil welcomed back wing spiker Jaqueline Carvalho after a year's absence and she was named Best Spiker at the 2010 World Grand Prix. Brazil took silver in that and at the World Championship after an electrifying final against Russia.

Coach profile

As a player, Ze Roberto twice won gold in the South American Championship and finished seventh in the 1976 Olympics. He started coaching in 1988 with the Eletropaulo women’s team and was soon an assistant on the men’s national team. In 1992, Brazil won the gold medal at the Barcelona Olympics. He started to coach the women’s national team in 2003, quickly winning the South American Championship and finishing second in the World Cup. He went from success to success, winning a number of major titles, culminating in the gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics for which he was named Coach of the Year for team sports in Brazil.
