PRESENTATION

Swatch World Tour back in Austria for 16th time

Considered by many as the premier international beach volleyball event, the capital of the federal state of Carinthia in Austria hosts the $600,000 A1 Grand Slam presented by Volksbank, the seventh of a FIVB record eight double-gender grand slam events on the 2012 FIVB Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour. This year’s event will be held July 16-22 as the final event prior to the 2012 London Olympic Games. On July 19, the drawing by lot for pool assignments at the Olympics will also be held in Klagenfurt. This year will be an unprecedented 16th-straight year that the Lake Wörthersee site has hosted the international circuit as teams from Brazil and United States captured men’s and women’s gold medals, respectively, in 2011. Brazilians Pedro Cunha/Ricardo Santos sealed the men's title on the Lake Wörthersee center court by defeating Germany’s Julius Brink/Jonas Reckermann in the final, as USA’s Phil Dalhausser/Todd Rogers won the bronze medal. The women's final saw USA’s Misty May-Treanor/Kerri Walsh defeat China’s Chen Xue/Xi Zhang for the fifth Klagenfurt gold medal for the Americans while the Chinese captured their second straight silver medal in Klagenfurt. Netherlands’ Sanne Keizer/Marleen Van Iersel earned the bronze medal. While the men’s world tour has been in Klagenfurt every year since 1997 for this magical summer festival, the women’s world tour has been in Klagenfurt every year since 2001.
