25-Jul-2004 Canadians Capture Cagliari Challenger Crown
CAGLIARI (Italy) - There was a big surprise at the Cagliari FIVB Challenger
event with the Canadian Team Lessard-Maxwell jumping on the first step of
the podium. The Canadians seemed very at ease in the Maestrale (the typical
Sardinian wind) which blown all over the afternoon on the "Spiaggia del
Poetto". Coming from Quebec, both 27 years old, in Cagliari seeded 7th in
the entry list, after the successful match of the Semi Final against the
top seeded Italians Gattelli-Perrotta, in the final Maxwell and Lessard
could beat the Brazilian team of Rocha-Salgado Rufino, a very young pair
who do not participate to the Swatch FIVB World Tour events, yet, but who
has already earned the satisfaction of a Third place at the Under 21 World
Championships in 2002 in Catania, Italy. Rocha-Salgado Rufino are
considered the future of women's beach volleyball.
