Beijing Olympic gold medalists Brazil defeated Japan in four sets to win a record eighth title at the World Grand Prix women's volleyball tournament on Sunday.

The Brazilians scored a 25-21, 25-27, 25-19, 25-19 victory over the hosts for five straight wins out of five in the six-team round robin final tournament.

Brazil pocked the top prize of 200,000 U.S. dollars.

Earlier, world champions Russia saw off the Netherlands 25-20, 25-23, 25-21 to secure second place with a 4-1 win-loss record, while Germany defeated Athens Olympic champions China 25-14, 23-25, 25-21, 25-14.

The Netherlands missed out on a medal with a 2-3 record, the same as Germany, who took third place thanks to a better points ratio.

China and Japan both ended with 1-4, with the hosts finishing bottom of the pile.
