of 2012 at the Fuzhou Open in China. While this is Hüberli’s first
senior FIVB tournament, it is Goricanec’s second FIVB Beach Volleyball

of her home crowd at the Gstaad Open.The 23-year-old was a regular
in FIVB age-group tournaments and has played in five U19 World
Championships and two U21, with her best result coming at the
Brighton 2008 U21 World Championships. Hüberli competed in the
inaugural U23 World Championships earlier this year in Myslowice
with Sarah Leemann and also the 2010 U19 World Championships
with Ines Egger in Porto. The 20-year-old is currently studying for a
teaching degree at the University of Berne.
