Team profile

The Serbian women’s team is presently ranked ninth by the FIVB. Over the past five years the “Blue Ladies” have achieved some notable results that have brought them to the level of the finest teams in the world.

The rise of the Serbian women’s team started with the bronze medal at the 2006 World Championship in Japan, followed by the silver medal at the 2007 European Championship.

For the first time ever in the history of Serbian volleyball, the “Blue Ladies” took part in the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008 and finished fifth.

For the next three years (2009, 2010 and 2011), the women’s team won the CEV European League, making them the only winners of this competition.

This year, the “Blue Ladies” will participate for the first time in the FIVB World Grand Prix. Jelena Nikolic returns to the team after injury problems and Vesna Citakovic-Djurisic is coming back after being absent for three years. With these two players, the young and talented Serbian team will pose a threat to every rival in the competition.

Coach profile

Zoran Terzic studied physical education at the Faculty of Physical Culture in Belgrade and played for VC Crvena Zvezda. At the start of his coaching career, he worked with ex-Yugoslavia coach Drago Tomic and then as assistant to Goran Nesic of VC IMT. Terzic debuted as head coach of the Serbian women’s team in 2002. His first major success was qualifying for the 2003 European Championship after a 12-year absence. Over the past five years, he has achieved a number of successes, including the bronze medal at the 2006 World Championship. In 2008, he led the team to qualification for the Olympic Games for the first time.
