'Big Red' downs off-colour Brazil
Visakhapatnam, India, August 14, 2005 - Russia
brushed aside Brazil 3-0 in the final of the
FIVB Men's U21 World Championship on Sunday. In
another powerful all-round team performance, the
"Big Red Machine" romped home 30-28, 25-18,
25-23 in 73 minutes.
Brazil, wearing an unfamiliar dark green uniform
as opposed to their customary canary yellow,
never really got going against the European
aristocrats, and finished well beaten.
It was Russia's third victory in the 13th
edition of the junior men's world championship,
and followed four earlier gold medals by the
former Soviet Union.
Vacancies per Continent: 12 teams
