At that time I played with great players like Carolina Costagrande and Romina Lamas, and Argentina obtained the second ranked place with our Seniors”.

Afterwards, Orduna worked with the grass-root categories of National Women Teams, with the Youth‘s at Macao World Championship in the year 2005 as higher point, with players that became then, great Seniors‘: Yamila Nizetich, Lucía Gaido, Aylín Pereyra and Julieta Lazcano.

With reference to the near future, he added: “Next March, we will start watching and evaluating players. Until then, we will follow those that are playing in Europe”. The Grand Prix 2013, with their third consecutive participation at the most important international competition for women teams organized by the International Volleyball Federation, will be an important challenge for a team that starts to follow the new Olympic path.
