Overview

Team profile

Peru

Peru are making their fifth appearance at the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix. They returned to the World Grand Prix in 2014 after they had not taken part since 2011, when they finished 16th. On their debut in 1994 they finished 11th. In 2014 they finished sixth in Group 2 winning a match against Canada and two against Cuba. Last year, they played in Group 3 and also hosted the second week in Trujillo.
 
The 1980s represented a golden age for Peruvian volleyball. With a team including Natalia Malaga, the team won silver at the Seoul 1988 Olympic Games, silver at the 1982 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship and bronze at the 1986 World Championship. More recently the team has failed to reach those heights; their last Olympic appearance was in 2000 and they have not won a World Championship medal since the 1986 bronze. They failed to progress to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games after finishing seventh at the Women’s World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Japan.

At a continental level, Peru have always been a force and have won a medal at every South American Championship since 1951, including a bronze in 2013. They have won the title 12 times, most recently in 1993.
