The Brazilian Women’s Volleyball champions Itambé Minas persuaded a two-time Olympic Games winner Sheilla Castro to interrupt her retirement, beating Hinode Barueri who also had the same idea!

 

Sheilla Castro is back to Itambé Minas (the 2019/20 Brazilian Championship, South American Club Championship, and Brazilian Cup winners) after 15 years and to professional volleyball after three years. A 35-year-old opposite hitter defended the colors of Minas, the club from the city where she was born, between 2001 and 2004, winning two state titles and one national title (2001/02).

Besides Minas, Sheilla played for Mackenzie Esporte Clube, São Cristóvão Saúde/São Caetano, SESC RJ and Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax in her home country, as well as for Waves Virtus Pesaro (Italy) and VakıfBank (Turkey) abroad. While wearing jerseys of these teams, she won the Brazilian Championship, FIVB Club World Championship, Brazilian Cup, and Italian Super Cup once each. With Brazil national team, the opposite hitter won, among others, the Olympic Games in 2008 and 2012 and was named FIVB World Grand Prix MVP on three occasions.

Sheilla’s last full season was in the 2015/16 season. Before the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the athlete announced that she would give a career break to dedicate herself to the pregnancy.

Recall tha Minas brought back another two-time Olympic Games champion earlier.
