2 min read

After a Day 4 in which Colombia defeats Peru (who ended the competion with 0 points) 3-1 (25:21, 25:17, 23:25, 25:15), and Argentina defeats Chile with the same result (25:16, 21:25, 25:21, 25:22), Brazil overtook the archrival Argentina in a reunion after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Games bronze medal match and won the 2021 South American Volleyball Championship.
They prevailed with a 3-1 (25:17, 24:26, 25:18, 25:18) in the final at home soil in Brasília to claim the continental title for the 33rd time, the 28th time in a row.
Actually, Brazil won all gold medals since the tournament was established in 1951, except for one, in 1964, when Argentina became the winner.
Brazil finished the competition with four wins and one lost set.

The Brazilian opposite Alan Souza dominated the match, scoring 24 points while Bruno Lima and Nicolás Méndez were the top scorers for the Argentineans with 14 points each. The setter from the winners Bruno Rezende ‘Bruninho’ had a great performance throughout the tournament and was elected MVP, while his teammate, the libero Maique Nascimento, was elected the best player of the match against Argentina.

In any case, both Brazil and Argentina booked tickets for the 2022 FIVB World Championship in Russia.
