Alberto Fabián Armoa was born in Buenos Aires on March 17, 1964. He started playing Volleyball as junior player for Velez Sarfield Team in 1981 before starting his coaching career in 1984 with the Instituto Malbernat team.

After coaching posts with Circulo General Belgrano, Nueva Chicago, Universidad Buenos Aires and Velez, Armoa began coaching both the Obras Sanitarias men's team and the Velez Sarfield women's team. In September 2003, Armoa was appointed coach with the task of gaining Olympic qualification and he did immediately at the South America Continental Qualification Tournament played in Venezuela in January.

Bidegain, Darraidou, Elgueta, Ferraro, Giani, Meana (L), Milinkovic (C), Patti, Peralta, Porporatto and Spajic are going to Athens, “first with the goal of getting the Olympic Diploma (qualify for the quarterfinals – the best eight teams) and then a medal,” Armoa said. In the long run, he adds, “I want to put Argentina among the first five teams in the world, qualify for the Final Round of the 2006 World Championship in Japan and return Argentina to the World League”.
