It’s a three-peat for Brazil in the Men‘s World Volleyball Championships as they won the Finals by beating Cuba in straight sets 25-22, 25-14, 25-22.

The lopsided victory by Brazil, extends their international domination, since the World Championships in 2002. Brazil now has won 15 out of the last 17 major international tournaments. The Brazilians has only missed out the Olympic Games and World League in 2008. The only other team to have earned the feat is Italy in 1990.

Brazil exacted a sweet revenge against Cuba who have dealt the Brazilians loss in the tournament’s first pool stage. The Brazilian‘s have also vindicated themselves from a straight sets loss in the hands of Bulgaria during the second stage of the pool competition.

Cuba was plagued with 27 errors against 14 for Brazil. The Brazilians, however, needed four match points to bring down Cuba.

Serbia has taken the bronze medal by beating hosts Italy, 3-1. –
