Argentina set sight on 2014 World Championship qualifier
Argentina, Peru and Colombia (Venezuela withdrew at the last moment) will compete for the second CSV place in the World Championship – the first vacancy was won by Brazil at the South American Championship – scheduled to take place from October 18 to 20.
“We have worked very hard to fulfil our goal of qualifying for the championship and we are very near its time. We will train even harder to maintain our dream of qualifying for next year's World Championship," said the coach of the Argentine team, Guillermo Orduna.

The winning team of the qualification tournament will represent South America together with Brazil at next year’s FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship, which will take place in Italy from September 23 to October 12.
