Benjamin and Marcio Araujo Triumph in Gstaad 
Gstaad, Switzerland, June 22, 2003 - Brazil's Benjamin Insfran and Marcio Henrique Araujo secured their first gold medal of the 2003 SWATCH-FIVB World Tour on Sunday when they overcame the brave challenge of Germany's Markus Dieckmann and Jonas Reckermann in the final of the Men's Gstaad Open. The Brazilians, second on the 2002 World Tour rankings and runners up in this event last year, fought back from a set down to win 23-25, 21-13, 15-10. The result helped them make amends for their loss in the final of last week's Rhodes Open. Swiss fans were given a boost when Stefan Kobel and Patrick Heuscher claimed the bronze medal thanks to a 21-18, 19-21, 15-10 victory over Austrians Clemens Doppler and Niki Berger. More.
