Brazil's national volleyball squad unveiled the uniform they will wear at the London Olympics on Friday. The squad that holds the number one spot on the FIVB World Rankings has its eye on a third Olympic gold.

The Brazilian Men's volleyball team is in Rio de Janeiro busily preparing for the upcoming London Olympics. Boasting an all-star lineup as well as several budding talents, the team's aiming high for this summer. A surprise arrival at training was Brazil's former captain Ricardo Garcia who left the team controversially in 2007. After five years, Garcia is fighting to regain his spot.

Ricardo Garcia, Brazilian Men's Volleyball Team, said, "I want to make this very clear. We will talk now to see if the things are going good and what the coach thinks is important to discuss. He will talk and I will understand him. But we are in the same tune and you can see that at the practices. Our connection was just a bit dusty, waiting at the garage. But we just need to wash and put the car back on the track."

The squad is known as the "Dream Team" due to its success under coach Bernardo Rezende and his winning style. The man in charge says he is investing in a number of the younger players.

Bernardo Rezende, Coach of Brazilian Men's Volleyball Team, said, "The first thing is for the players to recover, so we can build the team and give opportunities to young guys, like Mauricio Silva and Theo Nery. These players can contribute a lot in the future."

After practice, both the men and women players modeled their new uniforms for the 2012 Olympics. The Brazilian men’s squad claimed silver at the 2008 Olympics and is now aiming for gold in London.
