ARGENTINA WON THE SILVER MEDAL AT THE SOUTH AMERICAN JUNIORS' CHAMP.

Argentina could not stop Brazil at home

Saquarema, Brazil, October 27, 2012 - In the great "classical" final match of the Juniors' Men South American Championship and with both teams already with their tickets for the 2013 World Championship to be held in Turkey, the host team of Brazil won the crown 3-0 (25-14, 25-17, 25-17) without giving Argentina any chance of getting the lead and showing an outstanding volleyball. Venezuela meanwhile won the Bronze Medal over Chile, aso 3-0 as third South American team for next year's world competition. The goal of the team coached by Fabian Muraco to advance to next years' international tournament fulfilled already on Friday.

Brazil spikes were the best weapon to put the team ahead very quickly 6-1 and get a clear lead on the first set and they never lost their momentum. Argentina could do little even though they won the silver medal without losing a single set on the first four games of the competition.
