HORREM & EITHUN
Together since: 2012 (18)
Norway’s pair of over-30, Iver Horrem, 36 and Eithun Geir, 33 have
shown that they are willing to mix it on the court since joining up
at the start of 2013. They started at the Fuzhou Open, then moved
on to the Shanghai and Corrientes Grand Slams and from there
crossed the border from Argentina to Brazil to compete at the World
Cup Final in Campinas, where they reached the quarterfinals. They
also appeared at the Hague and Rome Grand Slams. For Horrem, this
year’s FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships is his seventh time
at the tournament. He played in six from 1999, but then missed the
2011
tournament in Rome. He also competed at the Athens 2004
Olympic Games with Bjorn Maaseide. Geir is playing at his first World
Championships. He made his senior FIVB debut at the 2004 Stavanger
Open, but then didn’t appear in an FIVB event any more until the
Fuzhou Open at the start of this year.
