The tournament was won by Russia, who finished with a perfect record, defeating Brazil in the intense final game. [1] [2] Japan defeated the United States for the third place, winning their first bronze medal in the tournament history, and the first medal since 1978, having so far three gold and three silver already to their name. [3] Russia won its second straight title, [4] while Brazil was prevented from achieving a volleyball double of winning both the men's championship and the women's championship in the same year.
