Golden girls Barbara/Agatha claim maiden World Championship

The Hague, the Netherlands, July 4, 2015 –  Barbara Seixas and Agatha Bednarczuk carved their name into FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championship folklore after sealing the 2015 title with a 21-18, 21-19 of fellow Brazilians Taiana Lima and Fernanda Alves.

It was a first world title for the pair, with Barbara adding to the bronze she won two years ago at the 2013 World Championship.

The match opened with a long rally, as both sides desperately digged to gain an early advantage. Barbara/Agatha eventually won the point, but Lima/Fernanda sided out and gained a 3-1 lead. They extended that lead to three points but Agatha/Barbara, playing in their first World Championship final, drew level again at 15-15 and gained control. They then needed two set points before the pair closed the opener with a win.

Barbara/Agatha carried that momentum into the second set, taking a 7-4 lead and forcing Lima/Fernanda to take an early timeout. It seemed to make a difference, as they quickly scored two points. But the current World Tour leaders failed to capitalize on the advantage as Barbara/Agatha moved ahead once again at 17-14. Fernanda/Lima nearly took the match to a tie-break following an epic rally. But Barbara/Agatha regrouped during a timeout to make history.
