Talita makes history ahead of start of World Tour

Talita Antunes has already been adding to here medal collection so far in 2014
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, March 31, 2014 – Talita Antunes, one half of the current FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour champion team, has added another title to her collection just over a month until the start of the 2014 World Tour. 

Having already won the South American Games title with her World Tour sidekick Taiana Lima earlier in March, Talita added Brazil’s Queen of the Beach crown on Sunday. 

She teamed up with Maria Antonelli at Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro to defeat Maria-Clara Salgado and Agatha Bednarczuk to win 2-0 (21-11, 21-17) and equal Sandra Pires’ record of three Queen of the Beach titles. 

“I am delighted to have matched Sandra’s record because she is one of the greats, an Olympic champion and I know how much she means to Brazil,” Talita said. 

Talita and Maria Antonelli were previously partners on the World Tour from 2009 until 2012, though they teamed up for one last time to win gold at the FIVB World Cup finals in 2013. 

“She was brilliant yesterday and remained bright today,” Maria Antonelli said. “It certainly helped as we didn’t need to think much about what we had to do and so we could relax and had less pressure on us.”
