France, July 20, 2003 - America's Misty May and Kerri

SWATCH-FIVB World Tour on Sunday when they destroyed
Brazil's Ana Paula Connelly and Sandra Pires Tavares in
the final of the $300,000 Marseille Grand Slam.

produced a near-flawless performance to secure the
$40,000 winners' cheque with a 21-10, 21-13 victory that
ended the Brazilians' domination of women's Beach so far
