For the 9th time, Brazil has taken the gold medal for the FIVB World Grand Prix.
It was the sweetest victory for the Brazilians against all the strong teams in the 2013 edition of grand prix. They were so determined and remained tough until the end of the final match with the Chinese national team.
Brazil did not lose any matches during the Final Round. Here are the results of their five matches against the other teams:
Brazil versus USA – (3-0) – 25-19,25-12,25-10
Brazil versus Japan – (3-0) – 25-21,25-22,25-17
Brazil versus Italy – (3-0) – 25-16,26-24,25-11
Brazil versus Serbia – (3-0) – 27-25, 25-21,25-22
Brazil versus China – (3-0) – 25-15,25-14,25-20
Brazil was too difficult to handle by the other squads. They haven’t stolen any single set but almost for Serbia and Italy (26-24/27-25).
Danielle Lins did a very well setting job for the entire grand prix. It was so amazing. Her attackers were also in good shape to spike above the net.
Brazil’s biggest weapon was massive blocks above the net. The Brazilians were really tough above the net to block every time the Mikasa ball was hit by their opponents. The Americans and the Italians suffered much to let the ball pass.
