Team profile

For 37 years, Germany tried to realise their dream of participating in the Olympics. They finally got there in 2008 after an emotional roller coaster ride, inspirational appearances and a bit of luck. In Beijing, Germany played well but lacked stability, eventually finishing ninth and parting company with coach Stelian Moculescu, who had already announced his retirement, During Moculescu's term, Germany became a world-class side, finishing ninth in the 2006 FIVB World Championship and fifth in the European Championship. The former international player always said that the development of a team needed one or two Olympic cycles. Former Poland coach Raúl Lozano took over and in his first year celebrated excellent results. After his team won the 2009 European League, they qualified for the 2010 World Championships and the 2010 World League. Sixth place at the European Championships in 2009 was also a positive result (being defeated only by the finalists: Poland and France). Most recently, Germany finished ninth in their first World League appearance since 2003, an unprecedented result that proves the turnaround of this side, as does their eighth-place finish at last year’s World Championship. 


Coach profile

Raul Lozano has been coach of Germany since 2009 and was previously coach of Spain and Poland. His biggest success so far was winning the silver medal with Poland at the 2006 FIVB World Championship. His main aim for Germany is to introduce younger players into the side and to improve technique. This was certainly the case in the 2010 FIVB World League, where his side finished second in Pool D, a phenomenal display on their return to the tournament. Lozano is expecting more this year.
