2005 Informational Kit

BERLIN 2005 - The 2005 SWATCH-FIVB Women's and Men's Beach Volleyball World Championship powered by Smart (www.beachvolleyball2005.com) will take place on the Schlossplatz June 22-26.  The 48 men's and 48 women's teams will compete for the medals as US$1,000,000 will be distributed.  Olympic gold medallists Emanuel Rego and Ricardo Santos of Brazil and Misty May and Kerri Walsh of the United States are expected to compete in the fifth annual SWATCH-FIVB World Championship as both teams captured the world titles in 2003 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Brazil has claimed six World Championship gold medals, including three men (1997, 1999 and 2003) and three women (1997, 1999 and 2001).  Mariano Baracetti and Martin Conde of Argentina captured the 2001 men’s title in Austria.  Emanuel claimed the 1999 world title with Jose Loiola in France while Guilherme Marques and Para Ferreira captured the 1997 crown for Brazil in Los Angeles.  May and Walsh denied the Brazilian women their fourth-straight world crown by defeating Adirana Behar and Shelda Bede in the 2003 finale.  Adriana and Shelda won the 1999 and 2001 for Brazil after placing third in the 1997 World Championships after losing to eventual champions Sandra Pires and Jackie Silva in the semi-finals.  A total of 449 teams from 41 countries have competed in the first four SWATCH-FIVB World Championships where over US$2.5-million has been distributed.

Women – The women’s SWATCH-FIVB World Tour returns to Berlin for the fourth-time as the 2005 stop will be part of the SWATCH-FIVB World Championships.  Host Germany will be looking for its first podium finish for its women’s teams as Suzanne Lahme and Danja Musch placed fourth in the 2004 Berlin stop.
