FIVB BEACH VOLLEYBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
MAZURY 2013 MEDIA GUIDE
GUNNARSSON & BRINKBORG
Together since: 2008 (54)
Two of the most enduring players on the FIVB Beach Volleyball World
Tour, Hannes Brinkborg and Stefan Gunnarsson are playing in their
second FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships together after
they featured at Rome 2011. The Stockholm natives’ first senior FIVB
tournament was the 2008 Sanya Open and their best finish was
a quarterfinal place at the Quebec Open in 2011. The 34-year-old
Brinkborg made his FIVB debut at the 2002 Cadiz Open with Mattias
Magnusson and they played together until he joined up with Bjorn
Berg for a further three seasons. Gunnarsson made his FIVB bow in
2003
at the Rhodes Open with Mike Fredriksson and played with five
other partners before joining up with Brinkborg.
