BABO-chan is looking forward seeing you!


SÚrgio Dutra Santos

SÚrgio has been one of the best liberos in world volleyball since making his international debut two years ago and his performances throughout the 2003 World League illustrated that his form continues to blossom.

Superbly quick and agile he plays the game with so much enthusiasm and passion it can be quite draining just watching him from the other side of the net.

Always one to lead the Brazilians celebrations SÚrgio is one of the key pieces in the World League and World Championship titleholders jigsaw following his awesome performance son court. The 2001 World League Best Receiver and 2002 World League Best Digger took a slight dip in form at last year's World Championships, where he "only" finished third and fourth in the best receiver and digger stakes.

But the 28-year-old proved that he's back to his best with a superb average of 1.55 digs per match in the finals and a success rate of over 70% when receiving.
