FIVB BEACH VOLLEYBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
MAZURY 2013 MEDIA GUIDE
SCHWAIGER D. & SCHWAIGER S.
Together since: 2002 (135)
The Schwaiger sisters have established themselves as one of the most
consistent pairings on the Beach Volleyball World Tour over the last
few years. They reached the quarterfinals at the Olympic Games in
Beijing (2008) and London (2012) and made history in London by
becoming the only pair to take a set off three-time gold medallists Kerri
Walsh and Misty May-Treanor. At 28, Doris is the elder by two years
and Stefanie has been her only partner since their World Tour debut
in 2003. Stefanie’s only time away from Doris was at the 2003 U19
World Championships, when she paired up with Stefanie Frotschnig.
This is their fifth FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championship and their
fifth place finish in Stavanger in 2009 was their best result. They won
silver in this year’s Shanghai Grand Slam, which they add to the silvers
they won at Kristiansand in 2009 and Marseille in 2010 and a bronze
in Shanghai in 2011.
