South America's beach volleyball players gear up for Youth Olympic Games qualifiers

 

Buenos Aires, Argentina, December 4, 2013 – South America is preparing for its second stop beach volleyball qualification round for 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, which is scheduled to take place at the Arenas del Plata Stadium in Montevideo, Uruguay from December 6 to 8.

Men’s and women’s teams from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela will be vying for the allocated berths to next year’s Olympic event.

Representing Argentina will be the boys’ team of Joel Leon and Exequiel Yacob, while Irene Verasio and Camila Hiruela will take part for the girls.  Brasil will be represented by Eduarda Santos Lisboa and Andressa Cavalcanti Ramalho and the boys’ teams will include Alexandre Figueiredo Elias and Arthur Diego Mariano Lanci. Both countries are on the top of the ranking after the first stop, in Paraguay, last month.

"Our goal to keep growing and improve on our first stop performance at the girls’ competition,” said Mariano Baracetti, former Argentine beach volleyball player and World Champion, who is now part of the training staff of the Argentine Beach Volleyball teams.

“Until now, our aim was to develop the teams and the players more than demand outstanding results. We are working slowly but are growing day after day. We are aware that we cannot obtain great results in a few days. But we are fine. After this second stop, we have the whole summer season to keep working towards the third that will take place next March."  

At the first stop, played in November 2013, Brazil topped the leader board with Alexandre Figueiredo Elias/Arthur Diego Mariano Lanci taking gold for the boys and Eduarda Santos Lisboa/Paula Moniz Hofmann for the girls. Argentina’s Santiago Aulisi and Leandro Aveiro took the boys' silver medal.
