It didn’t work for Brazil. Going through an intense moment of renewal, the Brazilian women’s volleyball team struggled, but could not resist Italy’s enthusiasm, led by Paola Agnou, in the final of the League of Nations. The Grand Final, held in Ankara, Turkey, ended in 3 sets with 0, partials 25/23, 25/22 and 25/22. The Italians are the great champions of 2022, having earned an unprecedented title in the competition.

At the age of 23, one of the highlights of the sport, Agonu was elected the championship’s MVP. The young Italian star scored 21 points this Sunday, playing a decisive role in the Italian victory. Also in Italy, Caterina Bosetti, Anna Denesi, Elena Pietrini and Cristina Chirichella took 7–7 points, led by setter Alessia Oro.

In Brazil, someone was the top scorer with 14 points. Captain Gabby downed the ball 11 times, but that was not enough. This is the third consecutive silver selection in the League of Nations, after the United States’ two titles.

However, this time the scene was different. The renovation, led by coach José Roberto Guimaraes, also exceeded expectations. Now, the attention turns to the World Cup in September and the sequel to the 2024 Paris Olympics.
