José Suárez - Spanish
Nacido en Rodas, Cuba en 1953, José Suárez llegó a Venezuela en 1992 para empezar a trabajar en el desarrollo del voleibol en este país. Comenzando con un grupo de entusiastas jóvenes, este ex integrante del seleccionado cubano que participó en todos los grandes torneos internacionales -incluyendo Campeonatos Mundiales y Juegos Olímpicos- se convirtió en el responsable del consiguiente progreso de este deporte en Venezuela. El equipo juvenil que ya había estado incluido dentro de los mejores, acabó en el tercer lugar del pasado Campeonato Mundial Juvenil en Polonia 2001. El mismo año, los sueños de Suárez se hicieron realidad cuando bajo su mando Venezuela tuvo un excepcional debut en la Liga Mundial. El año pasado su escuadra sólo alcanzó una victoria, pero Suárez y sus jóvenes muchachos tendrán una nueva oportunidad en el 2003 para demostrar que han crecido en fuerza y en tácticas. Suárez ya ha sido elegido en dos ocasiones el mejor técnico por la prensa venezolana.
