The Brazilian lineup for the Pre-Olympic tournament includes:

  • Outside Hitters: Adriano, Honorato, Lucarelli, and Lukas Bergmann

Coach Renan Dal Zotto expressed, “We had a good training period in Saquarema, and the team is focused on this final stretch of preparation for the Pre-Olympic. Our main goal for the year is to secure a spot in Paris 2024. We were counting on all three of our opposite hitters, but unfortunately, Felipe Roque had a personal issue and won’t be with us in the competition. We wish him all the best, and we remain determined to give our best at the Maracanãzinho.”

The Brazilian national team will commence their journey in the competition with a match against Qatar on September 30th. Subsequently, they will face formidable opponents, including the Czech Republic, Germany, Ukraine, Cuba, Iran, and Italy, as they strive to clinch their ticket to the Paris 2024 Olympics.
