Yes, Bernardinho hasn't forgot it and learned a lot with all that happened.

Yeah....This particularilly match is very important to us and our Volleyball History. Basically was when we got so close to the highest spot (Olympics gold medal), but didn't won because lack of prepartion and focus. The coach Bernardinho was in that team, and every time he talk about this match, you can clearly see that he hasn't forgot it.

This match transformed Brazil in the volleyball power house it is nowadays. It was a national sadness and after that they decided to invest in this sport, juniors and boys were selected and exaustivelly trained to win. Result: winner OG1992, OG2004, WC2002 to 2010, WCup2003 & 2007, 9 WL... several time world champions with the boys and the juniors, and lots of people around the world envying the brazilian way to play this sport. And that includes me!

I like to watch old matches, so this video is really nice. In my opinion if we are among the best today, one of the reasons is this amazing "silver generation" of Willian, Montanaro, Renan, Xandó, Amauri, Fernandão and...Bernardinho. I wish I could have seen these guys on court.

what's that about the points ?? they can only make a point on their own serve isn't it ??

I think game was more exciting when there wasn't a libero. It'll be better when FIVB would change this rule back. I think it would be more exciting if everyone can defend the ball including middle-blockers. And of course they would can attack from the back row like Muserskiy. Also quick ball would be more interesting ("double" quick ball, more combinations).
