Brazil's double-gender event returns to Vitória

VITÓRIA 2006 - For the fourth-straight year, Brazil hosts a double gender event towards the end of the season as Vitória, the capital of the smallest state (Espírito Santo) in the country, hosts the world’s best beach volleyball players for the first-time since 2002.  Vitória has previously hosted single gender events and now joins Rio and Salvador in hosting both men and women at the same time.  Espírito Santo, almost the size of Portugal, has some of Brazil’s best beaches in terms of sun, mountains and nice cities and villas.  Vitória is a warm and sunny tourist island very close to the South American continent.  Vitória's location, climate and tourist attractions offer Brazil’s best facilities for staging international, national and regional conferences.

 

 

 

 

Men - The SWATCH-FIVB World Tour returns to Vitoria for the first-time since 2001.  The previous four Vitória events featured all-Brazilian gold medal matches with four different winners.  Brazil has hosted more men’s “open” SWATCH stops than any other country with the 2006 Vitoria event being No. 28.
