Finland's Jyrki Nurminen and Santeri Siren claimed two wins in pool play at Siem Reap
Siem Reap, Cambodia, March 22, 2019 – Top seeds Jyrki Nurminen and Santeri Siren of Finland eased into the round of 16 as group toppers after recording two wins on Friday at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Siem Reap 2-star.

Nurminen and Siren topped Pool A as they opened their campaign with a clinical 2-0 (21-14, 21-5) win against Cambodia’s On Soknak and Jon Vichetdararith. In their second match, the Finns gained an easy win over Germans Eric Stadie and Paul Becker, who had to stop play just a couple of minutes into the second set due to injury 2-0 (21-16, 5-1)

The Siem Reap 2-star is the Finland pair’s second tournament this season after seeing action last January at the The Hague 4-star where they finished ninth.
