Men's German Grand Slam
Berlin, Germany June 25-29 2003                                           

Harley and Franco Take First Grand Slam
Berlin, Germany, June 29, 2003 – Brazil’s Harley Marques Silva and Franco Jose Vieira won their first SWATCH-FIVB World Tour event together on Sunday when they downed Argentina’s Mariano Baracetti and Martin Conde in the final of the $300,000 Berlin Grand Slam. The duo, who only got together in March, defeated the 2002 World Tour champions 21-18, 21-16, which allowed Harley to successfully defend the title he won last year with his former partner. It was an emotional and fully-deserved victory for the pair and gave Franco his first World Tour title since 1996, the year he finished top of the rankings. more Spanish Pic: Brazil's Franco (L) and Harley with their Berlin gold medals
