ANTONELLI & AGATHA
Together since: 2013 (5)
Maria Antonelli and Agatha Bednarczuk are long-time fixtures on the
FIVB World Tour, but only teamed up at the start of the year. They did
not wait long to win their first medal together when they finished
second and claimed the silver medals at the Corrientes Grand Slam.
Maria Antonelli then played with her ex-partner Talita Antunes at the
World Cup Final and delighted their home crowd in Campinas by
winning gold. They had previously played together from 2009 until
the end of 2012 and won eight gold medals along the way. Agatha
has played with a number of different partners since her debut at the
2005
Shanghai Grand Slam and won a silver and bronze at Open
events. Maria Antonelli has played in the two previous FIVB World
Championships with a bronze medal in Stavanger in 2009, but for
Agatha this is her first.
