PROKOPIEV & BOGATOV
Together since: 2006 (38)
Russia’s Serguei Prokopiev and Yury Bogatov are appearing in their
second FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships after they took
part at Rome 2011. The Muscovites began life as a team on the
FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour in front of their home crowds at
the Moscow Grand Slam and since then their best senior FIVB finish
was fourth place at the 2009 Sanya Open in China. Prokopiev and
Bogatov, both 26, made their senior FIVB debuts at the St Petersburg
Open; Prokopiev did so in 2005 and Bogatov a year later. Both players
featured in FIVB age-group tournaments; Prokopiev competed at
U21 World Championships in 2004 and 2006 and an U19 World
Championships in 2003, while Bogatov featured at the 2006 U21
World Championships in Myslowice, Poland.
