Brasilia Hosts First SWATCH FIVB World Tour Event

Brasilia is one of three new sites on the 2009 SWATCH FIVB World Tour calendar along with Rome (Italy) and The Hague (Netherlands).  The Finnish island of Aland returns to the international Beach Volleyball calendar after not staging an event in 2008 due to the Beijing Olympic Games.  Brasília is hosting its first-ever SWATCH stop, but the FIVB has been sanctioning events continuously in the South American country since 1987 when Beach Volleyball competition was "officially" recognized internationally. Located in the Central-West region of the country, along a plateau known as Planalto Central, Brasília has a population of about 2,557,000 making it the fourth largest city in Brazil.   As the national capital, Brasília is the seat of all three branches of the Brazilian government.  The city also hosts the headquarters of many Brazilian companies.  The city was planned and developed in 1956 with Lúcio Costa as the principal urban planner and Oscar Niemeyer as the principal architect.  In 1960, it formally became Brazil's national capital.  When seen from above, the main planned part of the city's shape resembles an airplane or a butterfly.  Pictured below are the top teams from the 2008 SWATCH World Tour after finishing atop on the season points standings - Brazilians (left to right) Harley Marques, Pedro Salgado, Shelda Bede and Ana Paula Connelly.

BRAZIL & BEACH VOLLEYBALL - Brazil has been the site of the most SWATCH FIVB World Tour events, including 30 men’s and 25 women’s tournaments  The 2009 Brasília stop marks the 23rd year that Brazil has hosted a men’s SWATCH stop and 17th-straight season staging a women’s event.  Except for the 2004 men’s event in Rio de Janeiro, teams from the South American country have medaled for host Brazil.  Brazil also staged the 2007 PanAm Games in Rio de Janeiro where Brazilians Emanuel Rego/Ricardo Santos and Juliana Felisberta Silva/Larissa Franca captured the titles.
