FOPMA & SWEAT
Together since: 2012 (10)
The USA duo of Jennifer Fopma and Brooke Sweat are both playing
their first ever FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships after
they teamed up for the first time at the Gstaad Grand Slam in 2012.
They have been regulars on the NORCECA Tour for a number of
years and this year they won gold at the Boca Chica tournament
in the Dominican Republic and bronze at the Cayman Islands event
before competing at the first five FIVB events of the season, with an
encouraging ninth-place finish at the Rome Grand Slam. The 31-year-
old Fopma was born in Leiden in The Netherlands as her father was
there to play professional basketball. She made her FIVB debut at
the 2009 Barcelona Open, alongside Whitney Pavlik, while Sweat,
debuted at the 2009 Aland Open, with Tealle Hunkus.
