PRESENTATION

Myslowice welcomes back FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour women

 

After successfully hosting the FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch Junior and Youth World Championships in 2006 and 2007, respectively, and staging a women's "open" event in 2008 and a men's "open" event in 2010, Myslowice will once again welcome back the ladies for the first time in two years. Poland has hosted women's World Tour events since 2006 with the first two taking place in Warsaw. However this is only the second time the women have travelled to Myslowice. Brazilians have traditionally dominated in Poland with Juliana Felisberta Da Silva and Larissa França taking three gold medals in the last four years. China is the only other country to be victorious, with Jie Wang and Jia Tian taking top spot at the first tournament in 2006. Located in the Upper Silesia region of Poland, Myslowice was a crossroads in the era of the German, Austro-Hungarian and Russian empires.  Myslowice has a population of around 75,000, is home to various international companies and has excellent international transport connections by road, rail and air.  Pictured below to the left are Brazilian sisters Maria Clara (left) and Carol Salgado after winning the Myslowice stage in 2008.
