Veterans Inguna Minusa and Inga Ikauniece are Latvia’s leading
female pairing and reunited at the end of 2011 having previously
played together at the 1999 CEV European U21 Championships. They
made their FIVB debut as a team at The Hague Open in 2011 after
Ikauniece returned to the court for the first time since stopping in
2004.
The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships is only their
fourth FIVB tournament together; they debuted together on the
FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour at the 2012 Stare Jablonki Grand
Slam and appeared at the 2012 Aland Open. A year earlier at the
Stare Jablonki Grand Slam the 34-year-old Ikauniece returned to
FIVB competition. Minusa made her bow all the way back in 2000
at the Berlin Open and has also appeared at four previous World
Championships, in 2001, 2007, 2009 and 2011.
