One of the best Brazilian female setters ever interrupts her one and a half year long retirement for Spanish top division team.


A 46-year-old Hélia Souza ’Fofão’, one-time Olympic champion and four-time FIVB World Grand Prix winner with Brazilian Women's National Team, ceazed playing professionally in May 2005 on a farewell match.

But, after more than year and a half without stepping on the court, Fofão accepted the offer from a Spanish club CV JAV Olímpico Gran Canaria for the second part of the season 2016/2017.

Brazilian setter is not the only reinforcement of a ninth-placed team in the Spanish Superliga. Polish receiver Laura Tomsia, who spent last season competing in Italian Division 2 team Beng Rovigo, also arrived.
