Another medal for Austria on the World Tour
After last weekend’s gold for Lena Plesiutschnig and Katharina Schützenhöfer, Austrian beach volleyball celebrated another medal on the World Tour as Daniel Müllner and Florian Schnetzer took home a silver medal from the one-star tournament in Bangkok on Sunday.
The Austrians, who have previous taken part in Beach Major Series events in Klagenfurt, Gstaad and Hamburg, lost out to Japan’s Yusuke Ishijima and Takumi Takahashi in straight sets in the final (15-21, 14-21), having beaten teams from Germany, Thailand and Spain on en route to the gold medal match.
It was Müllner’s first FIVB World Tour medal, while Schnetzer picked up his second after he won silver in Langkawi last season.
In the women’s final, the United States’ Aurora Davis and Bree Scarborough beat Spain’s Maria Belen Carro and Paula Soria in three sets (21-13, 17-21, 15-8).
