Germany’s Markus Böckermann and Mischa Urbatzka have been
playing together as a team since the start of 2010, but this is their

they have played at the Shanghai and The Hague Grand Slams, while
Urbatzka also competed at the Rome Grand Slam with Sebastian
Fuchs and they secured their best-ever Grand Slam result in Shanghai
with a fifth-place finish. Before teaming up with Böckermann,
Urbatzka – who has four FIVB silver medals to his name – appeared at
the 2003 U21 and the 2005, 2007 and 2009 World Championships,
