Team profile

Germany is coming off of its most successful period in its history, after finishing fifth in the 2012 Olympic Games in London and reaching the final round of the 2012 World League for the first time  – also placing fifth – under new coach Vital Heynen.

For 37 years, Germany tried to realise their dream of participating in the Olympics. They finally got there in 2008, finishing ninth and parting company with coach Stelian Moculescu, who had already announced his retirement, During Moculescu's term, Germany became a world-class team, finishing ninth in the 2006 FIVB World Championship and fifth in the European Championship.

Under former Poland coach Raúl Lozano, the team won the 2009 European League, qualified for the 2010 World Championships and the 2010 World League, and placed sixth at the European Championships in 2009.
