FIVB BEACH VOLLEYBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
MAZURY 2013 MEDIA GUIDE
ERDMANN & MATYSIK
Together since: 2009 (54)
Jonathan Erdmann and Kay Matysik have already had strong
showings this year, with three quarterfinals finishes and a fifth place
in Rome. This is their third FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championship
since they first teamed up just before the 2009 World Championships.
They also qualified for the London 2012 Olympic Games, where
they placed ninth. In 2011 they won silver at the 2011 European
Championships in Kristiansand. It was the second time they won
silver at the continental championships, having also finished second
in 2008. Matysik, 33, made his FIVB World Tour debut alongside Karl
Strempel at the Berlin Open in 2001, while the 25-year-old Erdmann
made his tour debut alongside Marvin Klass at the 2007 Zagreb Open,
shortly after the duo won the 2006 FIVB U19 World Championships
together in Bermuda. Two years later he won bronze at the FIVB U21
World Championships alongside Stefan Windscheif.
