Team profile

Peru will make their third appearance in the World Grand Prix in 2014. The last occasion Peru took part in the tournament was in 2011 when they finished 16th, and the time before was in 1994 when they came 11th. They will open their 2014 World Grand Prix campaign with a match against Canada in Pool J.

The 1980s represented a golden age of Peruvian volleyball. With a team consisting of Natalia Malaga, who now coaches the team, the team won silver at the 1988 Olympic Games, silver at the 1982 World Championship and bronze at the 1986 World Championship. More recently the team has failed to reach the heights of Malaga's heyday. 

Their last Olympic appearance was in 2000 and they have not won a medal at the World Championships since the 1986 bronze. At the continental level they have always been a force though, and have won a medal at every South American Championships since 1951. In total they won the title 12 times, but the most recent triumph was in 1993.

Coach profile

Natalia Malaga took charge of Peru’s women in October last year and leads them into their third appearance at the World Grand Prix. As a player, she represented the country at four Olympic Games stretching over 20 years. 

She helped the team to the silver medal at Seoul 1988 and also took part in their campaigns at Moscow 1980, Los Angeles 1984 and Sydney 2000. She won a silver medal with them at the 1982 World Championship and bronze at the 1986 World Championship. 

As a coach, Malaga guided the Peruvian women’s youth team to bronze at the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games and gold at the 2011 Pan American Cup. She was nominated her nation’s most influential woman in 2012.
