Germany, June 29, 2003 – Brazil’s Harley Marques
Silva and Franco Jose Vieira won their first
SWATCH-FIVB World Tour event together on Sunday when
they downed Argentina’s Mariano Baracetti and Martin
Conde in the final of the $300,000 Berlin Grand Slam.
The duo, who only got together in March, defeated the
2002 World Tour champions

defend the title he won last year with his former
partner. It was an emotional and fully-deserved
victory for the pair and gave Franco his first World
Tour title since 1996, the year he finished top of the
Franco (L) and Harley with their Berlin gold medals
