Career

National team

Rezende started his career in the Brazil team in the youth teams, winning the second place in the 2005 U20 World Championship. Playing for the adult team in 2007, he won the FIVB World League, the Pan American Games, the FIVB World Cup and the South America Championship. In 2008, he took part in the Beijing Olympic Games, where Brazil won the silver medal.

In 2009, Bruno won two trophies with the national team: the World League and the Champions Cup. One year later, he won the World League for the third time and obtained his first FIVB World Championship. In 2011, he finished in second place in the World League and became a South American champion and Pan American champion. A few months later, Brazil won the bronze medal at the FIVB World Cup. In 2012, the Brazilian national team once again won the silver medal at the London Olympic Games.

In 2013, Brazil finished in second place at the World League and won two gold medals in the South American Championship and in the FIVB World Grand Champions Cup. The setter started the 2014 season with the silver medal in the FIVB World League and a silver medal in the dramatic final with Poland in FIVB World Championship. In 2015, Brazil won the gold medal in the American Championship. In the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Brazil won a gold medal after the final match against Italy, and Bruno was named best setter of the tournament.

Personal life

Bruno is the only child of former volleyball players Bernardinho and Vera Mossa. His mother took part in Olympics three times (1980, 1984, 1988). His father is a silver medalist with the 1984 Olympic Games and former coacher of Brazil men's national volleyball team. His parents divorced when he was a child. From his mother's first marriage to basketball player Éder Mundt Leme, Bruno has an older half-brother, Edson (born 1981). From her third marriage, he has a younger half-sister, Luisa. From his father's second marriage to former volleyball player Fernanda Venturini, Bruno has two younger half-sisters, Júlia (born 2002) and Victória (born 2009).

Bruno often faced accusations of nepotism when he first started playing for Brazil national volleyball team, since his father Bernardinho was the team's coach from 2001 to 2017. However, both he and his father have vehemently defended themselves against the accusations, and were always backed up by the other players, who said Bernardinho was tougher and more demanding of Bruno because of their family ties.

Bruno is close friends with footballer Neymar.
