2010 SWATCH FIVB Youth World Championships

After staging 13 men’s and nine women’s SWATCH FIVB World Tour stops in Espinho, Portugal will again host another “major” international Beach Volleyball event by holding the 2010 SWATCH FIVB Youth World Championships for players under the age of 19 in Porto, July 28-August 1.  Porto, Portugal's second city and the capital of the Norte region, is located in the estuary of the Douro River in the northern part of the European country.  Being the largest city in the region with a population over 1.7-million for the greater metropolitan area, Porto is considered the economic and cultural heart of the entire region. The city of Porto comprises 15 civil parishes and the historic city centre was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996.  One of Portugal's most internationally famous products, Port wine, is named after the city because it is produced in, and shipped from the area.

 

“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 2010 or 2011.”

 

While the Brazilian men and women have dominated the FIVB U-21 competition with 14 medals combined, the U-18/19 championships has seen the medal and “final four” count distributed among 20 countries as compared to 17 nations for the junior event.  The German men and women have combined to capture five U18/19 gold medals as Christine Aulenbrock and Victoria Bieneck topped the women’s podium in 2009 at Alanya.  Overall, Germany has 12 combined U18/19 medals and 14 “final four” finishes.  Poland ranks second with seven medals and 12 “final four” placements.  The Netherlands is other country with multi-U18/19 world titles with a pair of women’s gold medals in 2002 and 2007.

 

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.  Ukraine became the 12th country to win a youth world championship gold medal as the men’s team of Sergiy Popov and Valeriy Samoday topped the Alanya podium in 2009

 

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 followed by Aulenbrock and Bieneck’s title in 2009.  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.  Pictured below to the left are men podium placers at the 2009 U19 (left to right) - Andrey Bolgov and Ruslan Bykanov of Russia, Sergiy popov and Valeriy Samoday of the Ukraine, and Cesar Menendez and Kevin Medina of Spain.
