Team profile

Brazil has been one of the strongest teams in volleyball history and the 2010 World League champions – a record-breaking ninth title – will be favourites to defend their crown. Their recent successes have coincided with Bernardinho's sparkling 10-year run as coach. He has led the team to a string of victories, including first place in the 2001 and 2003 editions of the World League and the gold medal at the 2002 World Championship. In 2003, he guided the team to further titles in the World League and the World Cup, and in 2004 Brazil claimed their fourth World League title and second Olympic gold medal. They won the World League again in 2005 and took gold at the World Grand Champions Cup. After winning the World League in 2006, as well as World Championship title, they followed up by winning the World League and World Cup in 2007. Their run of success was halted in 2008, but they took the World League again in 2009, in addition to the World Grand Champions Cup. They capped off 2010 by winning the World Championship in Italy.



Coach profile

As a player, Bernardinho collected a bronze medal at the 1981 World Cup and silver medals at the 1982 World Championship and the 1984 Olympics. As coach of Brazil's women’s team, he won three World Grand Prix gold medals (1994, 1996, 1998), a silver at the 1994 World Championship and two bronze medals at the Olympics (1996, 2000). As Brazilian men’s coach, he has won Olympic gold (2004) and silver (2008), and gold at the World Championship (2002, 2006, 2010), the World League (2001, 2003-07, 2009, 2010), the World Cup (2003, 2007) and the WGCC (2005, 2009).
