Brazil wins their seventh World Grand Prix women’s volleyball title

Brazil beat hosts Japan on Sunday to win their seventh World Grand Prize title with a perfect record of 5 wins and zero losses.

Cuba beat Italy to win the silver and the United States finished fourth.

“We were expected to win the Grand Prix after beating Cuba yesterday, but still we had to pay attention not to lose this last match and continue to compete at a high-level,” said Brazil head coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes. “We have many things to do. I do not like the Brazil defence. I think we have to be better in Beijing.”

“The block is good, but on the counter-attack we made many mistakes. In general we played well here and I expect we can maintain the same level at the Olympics as we played here,” he added.

Brazil are certainly set to be favorites for gold at the Beijing Olympics.
