There were no surprises in the final of the 2019 South American Women’s Volleyball Championship as Brazil National Team conquered the competition for the 21st time.

 

In the final of the 33rd edition of the South American Women’s Championship held in Cajamarca, Peru, Brazil defeated Colombia in straight sets, partially 25-22, 25-23 and 25-20, to win the tournament for the 13th successive time, the 21st time overall. Interestingly, Brazil managed to reach the final in all 11 editions of the tournament that included eliminations after the round-robin stage. The team coached by Zé Roberto crowned the campaign in which they were undefeated with five wins (lost only one set), while Colombia repeated the silver medal which they collected in the previous two editions. Two years ago, on home soil in Cali, they played the final for the first time ever.

The hosts Peru claimed bronze (the ninth in total) after defeating Argentina by a 3-2 (25-19, 26-24, 17-25, 19-25, 16-14).

Since the top four countries from the 33rd edition of the continental championship secured a spot in the South American Olympic Qualifier, and Brazil arrived in Cajamarca already with the guaranteed Olympic quota by winning one of the FIVB International Qualifiers, Venezuela assured their participation in the continental qualifications for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics despite finishing as the fifth-placed side. They beat Bolivia in straight sets in the face-off for the No.5 in Cajamarca.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
