Now, it is official! Itambé Minas confirmed the agreement with a two-time Olympic and five-time Brazilian Championship winner Thaísa Daher Menezes.


A 31-year-old player officially returned to the club in which she set off her professional career 14 years ago. Thaísa gave hints for this transfer, two weeks ago, when she came to cheer for the Belo Horizonte team in Game 1 of the Brazilian Championship finals against Dentil/Praia Clube.

The middle blocker, who spent the last season in Hinode Barueri, has the résumé filled with great achievements. With Brazil national team, Thaísa won the Olympic Games twice (2008 Beijing and 2012 London) and FIVB World Grand Prix five times (2008, 2009, 2013, 2014, and 2016). With the clubs whose colors she has defended, Thaísa won five Brazilian Championship titles (three times with SESC RJ and two times with Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax), three Brazilian Cup trophies and two FIVB Club World Championship titles (Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax and Eczacıbaşı VitrA from Turkey, once each).

In addition to Thaísa, the new Brazilian titleholders Minas confirmed contract renewals with setters Macrís Carneiro and Bruna Costa “Bruninha”, middle blockers Caroline Gattaz “Carol Gattaz” and Laura Kudiess, the opposite Bruna Honório, libero Léia Silva and outside hitter Lana Conceição.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
