Turkey Hosts SWATCH FIVB World U-19 Championships

Turkey returns to the international Beach Volleyball calendar as the Mediterranean seaside resort city of Alanya hosts the 2009 SWATCH FIVB World Championships for players under 19 years old. The eighth annual event will be August 19-23 in Alanya, which is located on the Gulf of Antalya and is situated between the Taurus Mountains to the north and the Mediterranean Sea. The 2009 U-19 gold medal team will be rewarded a “wild card” by the FIVB for a future SWATCH FIVB World Tour event during the final months of the 2009 or in 2010.

With a population of more than 400,000, Alanya is part of the Turkish Riviera. The relatively moderate Mediterranean climate, natural attractions, and historic heritage makes Alanya a popular destination for tourism, and responsible for nine percent of Turkey's tourism sector and thirty percent of foreign purchases of real estate in Turkey.

“These events have been critical to create a new generation of Beach Volleyball athletes,” said Angelo Squeo, the FIVB Beach Volleyball Events Director. “In a few years, these players will challenge for SWATCH FIVB World Tour medals and vie for berths in future Olympic Games. The winners of these events will also be rewarded by the FIVB and the respective organizers with wild cards and free transportation to take part in the main draw of a SWATCH FIVB World Tour event in 2009 or 2010.”

While Brazilians dominated the FIVB U-21 competition, the U-18/19 has seen the medal and “final four” count almost evenly distributed among 20 countries. The German men and women have each captured two gold medals along with two Dutch women teams. The Polish team of Michal Kadziola and Jakub Szalankiewicz gave their country the lead on the men’s medal list by capturing the 2007 U-19 title. Estonia claimed its first junior/youth world championship medal in 2008 as the men’s team of Kristo Kollo and Oliver Venno claimed the title.

Germany, which was denied a women’s podium placement for the first-time in 2007, rebounded in 2008 as Chantal Laboureur and Levke Spinger won the gold medal. The Netherland’s Danielle Remmers and Michelle Stiekema claimed the 2007 title as the Dutch team of Sanne Keizer and Arjanne Stevens won the first-ever women’s gold medal when the competition was for players under the age of 18. The age for the competition was changed in 2005 for players under the age of 19.
