Javier Weber, in his fourth year as coach, continues to bring growth to Argentina. They qualified to the 2011 World League Finals and finished in a very creditable fourth place (Argentina’s best ever World League result) after a semifinal loss to Brazil and bronze medal match loss to Poland. They also lost to Brazil in the final of last year’s South American Championship.
Argentina had a historic 2009, with a strong campaign in the World League (fifth), qualification for the World Championship and a runner-up finish in the South American Championship. The South Americans hosted the 2010 World League Finals before Weber reorganized the team at last year's World Championship, putting faith in his young players, and the move paid off as they finished ninth. Facundo Conte shone and Rodrigo Quiroga easily slotted into the captain's role. Luciano De Cecco surprised with wonderful setting, Alexis González showed that he deserved his place as libero and supporting them were Lucas Ocampo, Federico Pereyra, Pablo Crer and the very young Sebastian Solé.
Previous key results include a bronze medal at the World Championships in Buenos Aires in 1982, bronze at the Seoul Olympics in 1988, while in the Pan American Games, they have earned one gold and three bronze medals.
