Brazil pretty much dominated the 29th edition of the South American Championship without losing a match and by defeating Facundo Conte and Argentina in the gold medal match. Brazil has won the crown a staggering 28 times out of 29. The only time they didn’t compete was in 1964 due to a political turmoil in the country. This also means that the only time Argentina won the crown was 37 years ago.

Below is the complete list of match results:

We’d like to take this opportunity to give SIDAO a special shout out because he truly deserves it after playing as one of the starting Middle Blockers together with Lucas. No doubt his girlfriend Dani Lins is extremely happy for him.

He’s such a talented player!

Since they don’t really get a lot of international exposure, check out pics of the other teams that competed. Playing against Brazil and Argentina have allowed Venezuela, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay to gain valuable experience for the future.

Keep training and working hard BBs!
