2010 SWATCH FIVB Junior World Championships

Turkey has again secured a spot on the international Beach Volleyball calendar as the Mediterranean seaside resort city of Alanya will host the 2010 SWATCH FIVB Junior World Championships for players under 21 years old.  It marks the second-straight year that Turkey is staging a world finale after hosting the 2009 SWATCH FIVB Youth World Championships for players under 19 years old.  The 10th annual SWATCH FIVB Junior World Championships will be September 15-19 in Alanya, which is located on the Gulf of Antalya and is situated between the Taurus Mountains to the north and the Mediterranean Sea.  With a population of more than 400,000, Alanya is part of the Turkish Riviera. The relatively moderate Mediterranean climate, natural attractions, and historic heritage makes Alanya a popular destination for tourism, and responsible for nine percent of Turkey's tourism sector and thirty percent of foreign purchases of real estate in Turkey.

 

The 2010 SWATCH FIVB Junior World Championships will mark the 10th annual event as countries within the European confederation have staged eight of the previous nine U-21 Beach Volleyball events.  England hosted the 2008 (Brighton) and 2009 (Blackpool) SWATCH FIVB Junior World Championships as the country continues to develop the sport prior to the London 2012 Olympic Games.  Other European sites for the U21 championships were France (Le Lavandou 2001 and Saint Quay Portrieux 2003), Italy (Catania 2002 and Modena 2007), Poland (Myslowice 2006) and the Madeira Island (Porto Santo 2004). The South American confederation hosted the 2005 event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

 

In 2009 at Blackpool, England, Poland became the second country to sweep the gold medals at a single U21 world championship.  The Polish pairs of Michal Kadziola/Jakub Szalankiewicz and Monika Brzostek/Kinga Kolosinska topped the podium in Blackpool by defeating men and women teams from Brazil and The Netherlands, respectively, for the gold medals.  Brazil swept the gold medals at the 2001 and 2006 SWATCH FIVB Junior World Championships.  It was the second world championship gold medal for Kadziola and Szalankiewicz as the Polish tandem won the U19 crown in 2007 at Myslowice, Poland.  Brzostek placed third at the 2008 junior worlds at Brighton with Karolina Sowala.

 

Of the nine previous SWATCH FIVB World Championships for players under 21 years old, Brazilians have captured three men’s and six women’s titles.  Pablo Herrera, who won the 2002 U-21 title for Spain with Raul Mesa, captured the silver medal at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games with Javier Bosma.  Martins Plavins and Aleksandrs Samoilovs, the 2005 U-21 champions from Latvia, placed ninth at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.  The Latvians upset eventual 2008 Olympic gold medal winners Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers of the United States in their first Beijing match.  Brazilian Pedro Salgado, the 2008 SWATCH FIVB World Tour champions with Harley Marques, captured the 2003 and 2006 U-21 titles with Pedro Cunha and Bruno Oscar Schmidt, respectively.

 

Russian Alexandra Shiryaeva, who competed in Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, captured the gold medal at the 2003 women's U-21 world championships with Anna Morozova. The Schwaiger sisters (Doris and Stefanie), who placed fifth at the Beijing Summer Games for Austria, claimed the bronze medal at the 2005 U-21 championships.

 

Francesco Giontella and Paolo Nicolai of Italy won back-to-back U-21 titles in 2007 (Modena) and 2008 (Blackpool).   At the 2006 U-19 in Bermuda, Giontella and Nicolai claimed the silver medal with compatriots Matteo and Paolo Ingrosso placing third for Italy. The Ingrossos captured the 2008 U-21 bronze medal.

 

Marleen Van Iersel realized her gold medal aspirations at a SWATCH FIVB Junior/Youth World Championship event as she teamed with Dutch partner Daniëlle Remmers to capture the 2008 U-21 title for women. Van Iersel was playing in her ninth FIVB Junior/Youth world finale since first competing internationally for the first-time in 2003. A bronze medal winner at the past two worlds for players under the age of 21 with Marloes Wesselink in Italy and Poland, Van Iersel was teaming with Remmers on a FIVB podium for the second-time as the pair was second at the 2006 U19s in Bermuda.  Remmers also placed second in 2009 at the U21s with Michelle Stiekema, who was also second in 2008 with Sophie Van Gestel.   Pictured below to the left are the 2009 U21 women winners (left to right) - Jakub Szalankiewicz and Michal Kadziola of Poland.
