Number of WCh so far: 10
Best achievement so far: 1st – 2013
Qualified as: Defending World Champions
Coach: Morten Soubak
Reigning world champions after a wonderful championship in Serbia in 2013 when the team went undefeated through the tournament. However the Brazilians had certain problems in the quarterfinal when Hungary twice forced the later champions into extra time after 26-26 after 60 minutes and 29-29 after the first extension.
During the managerial helm of Danish Morten Soubak Brazil has developed a style of play where the players combine a high technical level with an admirable physique.
Most eye-catching players in the strong Brazilian collective are right wing Alexandra do Nascimento who in 2012 was chosen as the world's best female handball player, hard hitter Eduarda Amorim, goalkeeper Barbara Arenhart and the general of defence Daniela Piedade.
The countdown to the Olympics in Rio is running and the Brazilians will be optimally prepared for their defense of the World Championship.
