Two days after clinching their fourth international
Beach Volleyball “tour” championship together, Juli-
ana and Larissa became the first women’s or men’s
team to win eight SWATCH FIVB World Tour gold
medals in a season by capturing the US$ 190,000
Hyundai Open Barcelona.
With their 21-17, 28-26 victory in the 55-minute
all-Brazilian finale over second-seeded Talita and
Antonelli, the top-seeded Juliana and Larissa have
now won the last three SWATCH events and five of
the last six FIVB stops. Juliana, who was named the
SWATCH most outstanding player for the Hyundai
Open Barcelona, and Larissa have also won their last
19 FIVB matches.
In the all-American bronze medal match, third-seed-
ed Jen Kessy and April Ross downed sixth-seeded An-
gie Akers and Tyra Turner 21-13, 21-19 in 43 min-
utes. With Talita and Antonelli sharingUS$ 21,000
for second place, Kessy and Ross split $15,000 for
their 10th SWATCH medal in their last 13 starts.
