Team profile

Mexico

Mexico are in a phase of rebuilding and finished bottom of FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix Group 3 in 2015. The team were one of the dominant forces in North and Central American volleyball from the 1950s to the 1970s. They took the gold medal on their debut at the Pan American Games in 1955 and followed that by claiming bronzes in 1963, 1971 and 1975. It was a similar story at the NORCECA Championships with triumphs in 1969 and 1971 followed by bronze medal performances in 1975, 1979 and 1981. They also took seventh place competing against the world’s elite teams at the Mexico City 1968 Olympic Games. They ended a 20-year absence from the FIVB Volleyball World Championship in 2002 and returned again in 2006, but their best result came in 1974 when they finished in 10th place. The World Grand Prix provides a great stage for promising young players such as Andrea Rangel, Claudia Rios and Lizbeth Sainz to gain international experience.
