Great effort against the "classical" Argentine rival, Brazil

Montevideo, Uruguay, November 26, 2011 - In one of the semi-finals of the first ever Girls' U Youth South American Championship, Argentina fought until the end at the same level with its "classical" rival, Brazil and now goes for the Bronze Medal after it was defeated in a terrific tie-breaker 1-2 (20-25, 28-26, 14-16).
