World Tour lands in the Sin City

After a couple of weeks in China, the World Tour returned to the American continent with the city of Las Vegas hosting an event for the first time. The double-gender four-star tournaments features some of the best teams in the world, such as Norway’s Anders Mol and Christian Sørum, and new formations, including the one of Americans Kerri Walsh Jennings and Brooke Sweat.

Sweden added to the international calendar, Norway returns

Sweden and Norway will be part of the World Tour in 2019 as a pair of one-star indoor events has been added to the countries. Sweden will be part of the competition for the first time with a double-gender tournament scheduled to take place in Göteborg from April 18-21. Two months later, between February 21-24, Norway will return to the World Tour for the first time since the 2015 Stavanger Major with a men-only event hosted in Sand.

Laura and Kira training together

Reigning Olympic and world champions Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst said a couple of months ago that they are planning on returning to Beach Major Series next February in Fort Lauderdale. And it seems the German heroes have already started their preparation for it, as they trained together for the first time in the year this past week in Hamburg.

First training as a team. The countdown to the World Champs has just begun. Feels amazing!

Social Media: Vikings’ taking backflip to another level

At this point, you have probably already seen the BeachVolley Vikings celebrate one of their numerous recent victories with a sick backflip inside the court, haven’t you? So, Anders Mols took it to another level while he was traveling around the United States. What do you think?
