Team profile

Historically one of the most consistent competitors among the world’s elite volleyball nations, Brazil will be aiming to go one better than last year’s World League second-place finish behind Russia in Mar Del Plata, Argentina. They are seeking to avoid an unwanted reputation as bridesmaids having also finished runners-up to the same opponents at the London 2012 Olympic Games. However, the nine-time champions enter the competition on the back of some fine recent form. Though pushed all the way by Argentina, Brazil won last August’s South American Championship, earning qualification for the 2013 Grand Champions Cup and 2014 World Championship in the process. They won the former tournament in Kyoto, earning a measure of revenge over Russia in the process, while the latter is set to be held in September.

During the 13-year reign of renowned coach Bernardo 'Bernardinho' Rezende, Brazil have at times seemed unstoppable, racking up numerous pieces of silverware. He led the team to the 2001 World League in his first outing and they claimed the championship in successive years from 2003 to 2007. The Brazilians won back-to-back World League titles again in 2009 and 2010, three successive titles at the World Championship (2002, 2006, 2010), and the World Cup (2003 and 2007).

Coach profile

During a notable playing career Bernardo Rezenda, nicknamed Bernardinho, won a World Cup bronze medal with Brazil in 1981 and silver the following year. He competed at the 1980 and 1984 Olympic Games, helping the Brazilians to silver at the latter. He was appointed head coach of Brazil's men's team in 2001 and has since guided them to eight World League titles. He also led Brazil to World Cup titles in 2003 and 2007, and World Championship gold in 2002, 2006 and 2010. Before becoming coach of the men’s team, Rezenda guided Brazil's women to World Cup bronze in 1999, Olympic bronze in 1996 and 2000, and World Championship silver in 1994. He is the author of two books on volleyball.
