HISTORICAL ARGENTINA: FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

All the grass-root teams to the World Championship together for the first time.

The qualification to the U20 Women’s World Championship led Argentina to harvest a unique achievement: its participation in the three World Tournaments in the female, as well as the male gender, proof of years of constant growth.

By 2016, five out of six national teams had already secured their places in the 2017 World Championships. The outstanding results of the men’s team are no longer surprising, especially those of the Boys U19 team: the first position won in the South American Championship secured a place in the U19 World Championship to be held next August in Bahrein.

In addition to these achievements, the youth team certainly left a mark in Bariloche last October with a glorious victory against Brazil. Once more, the team was proclaimed champion, paving the way for this year´s U21 World Championships in the Czech Republic. The U23 Team traveled to Mexico, where they became the winners of the PanAmerican Cup, ensuring a ticket to the 2017 U23 World Championships in Egypt.

Undoubtedly, the performance of the women's team deserves special attention. To begin with the U23 team, it showed its skills in a game that will be hard to forget. Not only they got to the final, but they also qualified for the first time in history to a U23 World Championship.

Last, but not least, this year, Argentina will host the Female World Championship, and, of course, the U18 team will be testing its worth. Rosario and Santa Fe are already in motion for the great volleyball event next August. The last to confirm attendance was the U20 team, who competed in the PanAmerican Cup in Costa Rica with the goal of getting to the World Cup in mind. Proof of their work and commitment was their superb 3-0 against Peru that sealed the qualification.

Six national teams in World Championships is not only a real challenge but also a dream come true.
