Quebec set to stage first ever FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour event

The FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour returns to Canada for the first time since 2007 from July 19-24 as Quebec plays host to its first ever World Tour event. Although the country has hosted a total of seven events (three in Toronto and four in Montreal) it is the first time the circuit has landed in the French-speaking city. The last time an event took place in Canada it was USA's Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor who finished out on top, beating China's Chen Xue and Xi Zhang to the gold while Adriana Behar and Sheila claimed bronze. Elsewhere, Brazil's Emanuel Rego and Ricardo Santos secured the men's crown with a win over Australians Andrew Schacht and Josh Slack as Harley Marques and Pedro Salgado finished third. Quebec sits on the east coast of Canada and is the largest province in Canada. Below and left are the winners of the 2007 event in Montreal Misty May-Treanor (left) and Kerri Walsh.
