Bio Bits

Except for missing one season (2001) due to the birth of her son (Gabriel), Ana Paula has ranked as one of the top women's Beach Volleyball players in the world as she is the only player, man or woman, who has won SWATCH-FIVB World Tour gold medals with five different partners (Monica Rodrigues, Sandra Pires, Shaylyn Bede, Leila Barros, and Shelda Bede).

 

The top server on the international circuit, Ana Paula's best season on the SWATCH-FIVB World Tour was 2003 when she and Sandra Pires won the points title after playing in eight finals with four gold medals for 10 events.  Despite placing fifth at the Athens Olympic Games after being eliminated by Brazilian rivals Adriana Behar and Shelda Bede in a three-setter, the 2004 season was a "major" disappointment for Ana Paula and Sandra as both players were hampered by injuries and limited to only six events.

 

On the Brazilian domestic tour, Ana Paula and her partners have finished among the top three teams four times, including a second in 1999 with Jackie Silva, a third with Adriana Samuel in 2001, a second with Tatiana Minello in 2002 and a second with Sandra Pires in 2003.  Ana Paula, who has won a beauty pageant in her hometown, won the Brazilian Queen of the Beach competition in 2002.  Ana Paula teamed with Natalie Cook in February 2006 to win an Australian domestic event together.

 

Ana Paula was a standout player on the Brazilian National team in the 1990s.  She was a member of Brazil's bronze medal Volleyball team at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games, and helped the South American country to three Grand Prix championship teams (1994, 1996 and 1998).  She was also the most valuable player at the 1994 World Cup.
