Team Profile Head coach
After winning five gold medals this season, including its fifth World Grand Prix title, the Brazilian national team coached by Mr. José Roberto Guimarães is looking to win its first World Grand Champions Cup title in Japan this year.

The Brazilian team had its best result at the first edition of the World Grand Champions’ Cup in 1997, when it took third place ahead of China and Japan after three victories and two defeats. In 2001 the tables were turned as the team took fourth place behind China, Russia and Japan with two victories in five matches. Coach José Roberto Guimarães also won the silver medal in the competition in 1993, with the Brazilian men’s team.

The Brazilian girls remain undefeated in their 2005 season. The first gold medal came in the Courmayeur Championship in Italy, followed by first place in the Montreux Volley Masters in Switzerland. The main title was, however, the Grand Prix, where the team won its fifth title and Paula was chosen as the best player. Brazil also won the Qualification Tournament to the 2006 World Championship and the South American Championship.
