Laura Bloem and Rebekka Kadijk are another new partnership for
2013
and while the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships is
their first FIVB tournament together since joining up, they have played
together on the Dutch National Tour where they won one gold and
one silver. The 23-year-old Bloem made her FIVB debut in front of her
home crowd at the 2011 Hague Open having enjoyed a stellar age
group career. She won silver at the 2006 U19 World Championships
and then improved to gold in 2007. Moving up to the U21 ranks she
won gold in 2008 and silver in 2009. Kadijk, who is 10-years older
than her partner, has played over three decades, having taken her bow
at the 1997 Marseille Open. She has also competed in every World
Championships since 1997 with three different partners including her
elder sister Debora in the 1997 and 1999 editions. Her best result in
an FIVB competition was a gold medal finish at the 2001 Lianyungang
Open in China, alongside Marrit Leenstra.
