STARE JABLONKI 2005 - The scenic recreational centre amidst the lakes and woods hosted its first “major” beach volleyball event in 2004 when the men’s SWATCH-FIVB World Tour saw Olympic Champions Emanuel Rego and Ricardo Santos win five-straight elimination matches enroute to the Stare Jablonki title.  The 2004 event marked the return of Ricardo to action after spraining his right ankle two weeks earlier in Mallorca.  The gold medal finish also started a string of three-straight event titles for Emanuel and Ricardo, who also won in Austria the next week followed by their Olympic win in Athens.  Two Polish teams finished 25th in the 2004 Stare Jablonki event.  The Stare Jablonki stop is situated on courts at the Hotel Anders resort in the Mazurian Lakes District in the north-eastern Poland, about 30 km south-west of Olsztyn. The Hotel Anders, situated in the Taborskie Woods on the Lake Szelag Maly, is a 150-room resort thate features both Polish and European style cuisine
