WEBER SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMP. GOALS

Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 2, 2013 - The Argentine Juniors' Men Team already thinks on their trip to Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, venue of the South American Championship to be played August 6th - 10th. This next Sunday, at 21.30 the Argentine Delegation will leave Buenos Aires city.

After a very hard training week prior to their trip and after the FIVB World League Final 2013 and with three changes on the players' roster (Agustin Ramonda, Ezequiel Palacioss and Pablo Kukartsev - this last one replacing yesterday the injured Ivan Castellani), the team is ready to face its new important international engagement for next year's international season.

“We have the dream of looking forward to the growth of the team and of course, our goal is to qualify for next year's World Championship" expressed the coach Javier Weber. "We have worked to improve and the engagement of the players is large. We are facing a very big challenge" added the coach.

With reference to the injury of Ivan (right knee meniscus) Weber regret saying: "I was very sad because Ivan was growing during the FIVB World League in his first strong season with the team so we had to replace him as our doctors advised us so we preplaced him with Kukartsev, that stands on the roster of the South American Championship we gave the Confederation some time ago".

Therefore the official 14 players Roster travelling to Brazil includes:

Setters: Luciano De Cecco - Nicolas Uriarte

Opposite players: Bruno Romanutti - Pablo Kukartsev

Middle players: Pablo Crer - Sebastian Sole - Martin Ramos

Wing spikers: Rodrigo Quiroga - Federico Pereyra - Pablo Bengolea - Agustin Ramond -, Ezequiel Palacios

Liberos: Alexis Gonzalez - Facundo Santucci

The team coached by Javer Weber is part of Pool B together with Paraguay and Venezuela in the preliminary round that will take place, August 6th and 7th. On August 8th the team will rest and on the 9th start semi-finals and finals.
