Overview

Team profile

Serbia

This year marks Serbia's sixth consecutive appearance at the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix. In 2015 they finished eighth overall but had a better performance in 2014 when they finished seventh in the Preliminary Round of Group 1 but failed to qualify for the Final Six. They won the bronze medal in 2013, following on from an 11th-place finish in 2012. At the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship they finished joint seventh after just missing out on the third round.

Appearing as Serbia and Montenegro, they won bronze at the 2006 World Championship. A year later Serbia claimed silver at the European Championship, while 2008 marked their first Olympic appearance when they finished equal-fifth in Beijing.

Serbia won the European League three times from 2009-11, while a gold medal at the 2011 European Championship and bronze at the same year’s World Grand Prix further boosted their reputation. Injuries plagued the team’s campaign at the London 2012 Olympic Games and they failed to win a match. They will have another chance at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games as they qualified for the event through their second place finish at the 2015 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Cup.
