Team profile

Colombia

Colombia participated in the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix for the first time in 2015. They participated in the Women’s World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Puerto Rico from May 20-22, but failed to advance to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games after finishing second.

Colombia’s previous volleyball experience was at a continental level in the South American Championships where they finished fourth in each of their last three appearances dating back to 2009 and were also fourth when they hosted the tournament in Bogota in 2003. Their best result in the competition came in 1991 when they won the bronze medal. It remains their first and only medal at an international competition.

Over the last three years Colombia have competed in the Pan American Cup with gradually improving results. They participated for the first time in 2012 and finished 11th, a year later they rose two places to ninth and, after defeating Costa Rica, Peru and Mexico, they finished seventh last season.

Colombia have only competed once at the Pan American Games and finished seventh back in 1971, above Haiti and Bahamas. They came third when they hosted the 2005 Bolivarian Games, defeating Ecuador to win bronze.
