Both Jolien Sinnema and Michelle Stiekema have been on the beach
volleyball scene for a number of years, but it was only this year that
they joined up as a team, playing together at the Fuzhou Open and
the Shanghai, The Hague and Rome Grand Slams, with a promising
ninth place in the Hague. Although this is both players’ FIVB Beach
Volleyball World Championship debut, they both featured heavily in
age-group tournaments. Stiekema, 23, won gold at the 2007 U19
World Championships with Danielle Remmers and then claimed
silver at the 2008 U21 World Championships in Brighton, England,
with Sophie van Gestel and the 2009 U21 World Championships in
Blackpool, England with Remmers once again. Stiekema made her
FIVB debut at the 2007 Fortaleza Open in Brazil, while Stiekema took
her bow at the 2011 Myslowice Open in Poland.
