1991-2000 Cuban Women's National Team
2012 Court of Honor
Led by 2006 Volleyball Hall of Fame coach Eugenio George, the Cuban Women’s National Volleyball Team were one of the most dominating volleyball teams of all time from 1991-2000. In that span Cuba won three consecutive Olympic gold medals in 1992, 1996, 2000 as well as two FIVB World Championship crowns in 1994 and 1998. There were three straight FIVB World Cup titles in 1991, 1995, and 1999, two FIVB World Grand Prix Championships in 1993 and 2000, and two straight FIVB World Grand Champions Cup gold medals in 1991 and 1995 as well as two Pan-American Championships in 1991 and 1995.
All of these accolades add up to a grand total of fourteen championships over a nine year span between six tournaments. Supremacy like this might never be replicated in not only volleyball, but in all of team sports as well.
Some of the greatest players of all time played for the Cuban National Team during this time including Hall of Famers Magaly Carvajal, Mireya Luis, and Regla Torres. The dynasties this team created are unparalleled to any other team in the world.
The Volleyball Hall of Fame is proud to welcome the 1991-2000 Cuban Women’s National Team into the Court of Honor in recognition of achieving an unprecedented level of international success.
