Brazil crush Russia in one-sided final

Macau, China, July 31, 2005 - Brazil produced some magic in Macau to win the FIVB Girls' U18 World Championship for the second time on Sunday. The fired-up South Americans romped past a strangely subdued Russia 3-0 (25-17, 25-14, 25-17) to claim the gold medal.

In addition to their team's success, 16-year-old power spiker Natalia Pereira was named Most Valuable Player.

Brazil's one-sided victory maintained the country's incredible record in July 2005, and follows their success in the men's World League Final in Belgrade and the women's victory in the World Grand Prix Final Round in Sendai, Japan.
