Gold for Brazil and the USA
This year’s first tournament for the women brought us a new winning team: Brazilians Eduarda “Duda” Lisboa and Elize Maia won gold on Sunday at Maceio Open. From the Qualification on they faced their opponents flawlessly. No set was lost in any of the matches they played throughout the whole tournament. They defeated the European Champions Ludwig/Walkenhorst, Dutch power pack Meppelink/Van Iersel and Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals bronze medal winners Agatha/Barbara in a tremendous scoring spree. We guess, we have to add yet another Brazilian team to the watch-list of 2016.
While four of the three remaining men’s teams were Brazilian, the US team of Dalhausser/Lucena claimed the throne of the Maceio Open in Brazil. Pedro Solberg/Evandro were defeated in three sets and brought the US Team’s Olympic dream one step closer. Bronze was handed over to Guto/Saymon.
