Defending champions Brazil debuted in the men’s volleyball tournament of the Pan American Games by outclassing Canada in straight sets 25-17, 25-13, 25-13 in Pool B on Monday. In a match of few errors from both sides (15 by Canada and 14 by Brazil) that lasted 1 hour and 4 minutes, the winners held a 9-4 advantage in blocking and blanked the oppo...nents 5-0 in service aces.

Louis Pierre Maniville (Captain of Canada): “This was a little bit disappointing in the loss; Brazil is a very experienced team. Our sequences were not so good, but we have seen improvements, since the last time we played. We expect a good performance for the rest of the tournament.”
