PRESENTATION

Swatch World Tour back in Austria

Considered by many as the premier international Beach Volleyball event, the capital of the federal state of Carinthia in Austria hosts the final Grand Slam of the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour calendar from August 1-7. 2011 will be an unprecedented 15th-straight year that the Lake Wörthersee site has hosted the international circuit as teams from Brazil and United States captured women’s and men’s gold medals, respectively, in finals featuring the two Beach Volleyball powers. Brazilians Juliana Felisberta Silva and Larissa Franca sealed the women's title on the Lake Wörthersee centre court by defeating compatriots Vivian Cunha and Taiana Lima in the final, the duo successfully defending the title they won in 2009 as Germany's Sara Goller and Laura Ludwig won bronze. The men's final was also a one-country affair with Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser squaring off against Matt Fuerbringer and Nick Lucena in an all-American match. Despite a passionate effort Fuerbringer and Lucena couldn't seal the win as Brazil's Alison Cerutti and Emanuel Rego completed the podium by claiming bronze. Pictured to the left below are the gold medal winners Rogers and Dalhausser in the final.
