HOST POLAND NETS SIX U19 WORLD ELIMINATION BERTHS
 

Myslowice, Poland, July 13, 2007 - Led by host Poland, a total of 32 men's and women's teams from 18 countries advanced to the elimination rounds at sixth annual SWATCH-FIVB World Championships for players under the age of 19 after the completion of pool play here Friday.

 

Poland gained three spots in each gender’s elimination rounds that will conclude Sunday with the medal matches.  In addition to claiming a gold medal, Sunday’s winning teams will also earn a “wild card” spot in a future SWATCH-FIVB World Tour event.

 

Saturday’s featured match will be in the opening round as two players that earned “final four” spots in the 2006 SWATCH-FIVB World Championships in Bermuda will face each other in the women’s competition.

 

Danielle Remmers, who netted a 2006 silver medal for the Netherlands with Marleen Van Iersel, and Michelle Stiekema challenges Tanja Goricanec, who placed fourth for Switzerland in Bermuda last September with Taryn Sciarini, and Marlen Brunner.

 

Remmers and Stiekema advanced to Saturday’s play with a 3-0 record after winning their pool while Goricanec and Brunner placed third in their group with a 1-2 record.
