Jaqueline Carvalho, born 31 December 1983 in Recife, Brazil is a female volleyball player named Best Receiver at the 2006 World Championship in Japan, where Brazil claimed the silver medal after a loss in the final against Russia. She also won the silver medal and Best Spiker award at the 2010 FIVB World Grand Prix. Jaqueline was part of the National Team who won the gold medal at the 2011 Pan American Games held in Guadalajara, Mexico. At only 17 years of age, she was voted as the best player of the Youth World Championship in which Brazil competed and won she was invited to play for the senior team. The following year in 2002, she seriously injured a vein in her right hand with doctors saying they might have to amputate it. She left volleyball for 3 months and went through intensive therapy to unblock the vein. During the years 2002 to 2004 these injuries and her therapy prevented her from representing Brazil at the 2004 Olympic Games as well as the Pan American Games.

She rejoined the Brazilian squad and became a starter in 2005. Two years later, Jaqueline received the devastating news that she tested positive for doping from an appetite suppressant called sibutramine, but was declared innocent after the laboratory learned more about the substance. Instead of a 2 year suspension, she only received 3 months, but she missed the Pan American Games hosted by Brazil. She travelled to Japan for the FIVB World Cup where she won a silver medal. Carvalho was out of the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Cup 2011 after a head injury at the Pan-American Games ruled her out for six to eight weeks according to her coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes. Jacqueline suffered a concussion when she collided with libero Fabi Oliveira when both dived to save a ball during Brazil's opening match against the Dominican Republic. She was carried off the the court on a stretcher while Fabi stayed in the game.

"Jacqueline is back in Sao Paulo, Brazil in good spirits and resting for six to eight weeks by recommendation of the doctors,” Guimaraes said. “After that, she will be back training."

Having encountered serious trials like this, the hand injury, a miscarriage and serious neck injury, she remains strong and sees herself as a warrior. She hopes to inspire others to never give up and how strength helps in overcoming obstacles in life.

"When I became pregnant my plans were different, but from the time of that loss, I have new plans."

After leaving Sollys Osasco, Carvalho was supposed to play for Sesi, a new Brazilian women’s club team, but her contract was dissolved when she got pregnant. Sesi hired Sassa instead which left Jaqueline without a team for her next season. She received offers to play in Europe but declined because she wanted to stay in Brazil to be with her husband. Due to the player point system in the Brazilian League, her only choice was Sollys Osasco. After some talks, Osasco finally opened their doors again to the MVP of the 2009/2010 edition of the Superliga.

"I have resumed my training. I am very focused and thinking about the new season with Sollys and the 2012 Olympics. These are my goals at this point. I will devote much and give my best."
