MEDIA GUIDE

INTRODUCTION

FIVB BEACH VOLLEYBALL U23 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS HIGHLIGHTS & RESULTS

FIVB U23 BEACH VOLLEYBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Following a memorable debut event in 2013, Myslowice, Poland was again the site of the FIVB Beach Volleyball U23 World Championships in 2014. As the FIVB

now has an unprecedented four age-group World Championships for beach volleyball, Poland and Australia claimed the 2014 men and women’s gold medals.

Including the 2014 FIVB U23 World Championships, Myslowice has hosted a total of 12 FIVB Beach Volleyball international events. Myslowice has been the

site of three men’s FIVB World Tour Open events, two women’s FIVB Tour Open events as well as four double-gender age-group World Championships (U21 in

2006, U19 in 2007 and U23 in 2013 and 2014).

Long the spawning sand of FIVB Beach Volleyball stars of the future, the 2014 FIVB U23 World Championships in Myslowice saw Poland’s talented host-country

young guns Maciej Kosiak/Maciej Rudol win their first FIVB age-group World Championship. The 2014 men’s silver medal in Myslowice went to Norway’s Lars

Tvinde/Hendrik Mol and winning the bronze medal was Brazil’s Allison Cittadin/Gustavo Carvalhaes.

On the women’s side in 2014 in Myslowice, winning the gold medal of the FIVB U23 World Championships was Australia’s Nicole laird/Mariafe Artacho who

defeated USA’s Lara Dykstra/Jace Pardon in three sets. For the second straight year, the women’s bronze medal was won by Canada’s Melissa Humana-Parades/

Taylor Pischke. The Canadian duo also played enough on the 2014 FIVB World Tour that Humana-Parades was voted as the 2014 women’s FIVB Rookie of the Year.

The age-group FIVB World Championships have historically seen many of the young stars of today building their experience level to advance up the ladder in

international competition.
